And I find this very smart I like Letizia's personal style, although I know it's more fashionable than regal. It's just unique, imo

Letizias wardrobe is not expensive as you claim, many of her clothes are from Zara and Mango, both high-street stores in Spain with branches across the globe. Unlike other royal women she doesnt have a Lady-in-Waiting or a stylist to choose her clothes for her.

Moreover there are plenty of people who dont find Mary particularly stylish or elegant.

I do agree with you 100%!!
I sometimes like Letizia style and every time she wears mango or Zara clothes I go there and bought the same because they are just wonderful casual pieces, but she has a lack elegance, style...I don't know something is missing

I'd have to agree with you. It's all personal preference, of course. Letizia is very pretty, and in videos she moves gracefully. But I can't say I'm crazy about the majority of her wardrobe choices.

I would have to say that Letizia is more fashionable than classic. For me, if you take most of her pieces individually they are wonderful, but then she puts them together they loose some of their attraction. Take today's outfit (the purple jacket and plaid pants with the open toed shoes - pics on the current events thread). The jacket is wonderful on her but I would have adored it even more if paired with a longer wider legged gray pant, or the pants would have been good if worn with a cardigan and more classic looking shoes (pointed toe pump/heel). I suppose what I'm saying is that for me, it's not necessarily the pieces themselves but how they are being put together.

Letizia's clothes in general are not as expensive as other CPsses. She rarely wore clothes from famous foreign designers or brands like them. Varela's clothes have become expensive because of her.
Perhaps she is not interested at being dressed by a stylist who often looks like putting together a catalog.

I agree with you
She is probably (certainly) just nots so intersted in beeing a Fashion icon , she just want to be , want to appears Professionnal FOR ME it is a real elegance ....that's her elegance , class
I mean she could be beautiful, extremly fashionable, she could be more really more "remarquable" than QRania, Carla Bruni, Princess Mary etc...if she would....she is pretty, nice face, she has a beautiful Body, perfect Shape, she has a budget, Spain is now one of prime Fashion Country in the world .....but she simply doesn't care of her Wardrobe, she cares of her job, her fonction, her private life and family....
She shows it clearly, wearing simple clothes, in simple way, repeating and recycling sames clothes again and again .
That is really for me a true princess from people
That's why I admire a lot Pletizia
I repeat, it's a kind of nice human being, an elegance

I could not agree with you more about her caring for her job & family more than her wardrobe. And because of that she, Felipe and the Spanish monarchy will prosper. The love of the spanish people will carry them far.

I love the purple cardigan and blouse, but I don't care for that belt. The blouse has a print, and the buckle of the belt seems to clash with it. I think that a smaller, less ornate belt buckle would have looked better.

I like a lot the cardigan and shirt, not sure about the pants and belt, though.
Love the purse.

The top part, blouse and cardi, are lovely, I don't think the belt suits the blouse. The grey shoes look out of place with the black pants and the posing or whatever odd posture that is looks horrific, is standing straight so difficult?

Oh, the cardigan & the blouse are lovely (although the cardigan could have been a bit longer) I agree that the belt is not matching well. A more simple belt would have looked better, the pants are okay, but the shoes don't go well with it. I'd prefer some black pumps...

Every single piece is lovely and the overall is really well put together. I also find it nice and comftable as well as colorful but this look is not meant to be for an official event especially on a future queen. Its way too casual, maybe if she had matched it up with a purple jacket (which she has) would look very nice.

Don't think the grey shoes are right with this outfit today but apart from that i like it and it appears to be a more casual relaxed event so i dont mind what she has choosen

It's a very nice outfit - for a suburban housewife having mid-morning coffee or for a school teacher at work, but it's absolutely not meant for a Princess to attend any official engagement.

No matter of the belt. I don't like grey shoes.
Cardigan, shirt even trouser all right but shoes?!
About belt it would look nice with black trousers and simple white shirt.

i think letizia's style has improved a lot lately. she wears things she likes and is comfortable in and that shows. her clothes at the beginning were nice though, it's just that now she looks more at ease.
however, she has scored points lately for me, but not because of her fashion sense: she is certainly the most active crown princess, she seems extremely involved and follows a hectic schedule. we haven't seen her around enjoying life as a royal but normally all the pictures we get from her are about her official activities. that's nice to see. royals are royals and not celebrities. seeing them shopping, out for a walk or out on a trip with friends is fun but what should stand out is their work as diplomats and letizia has achieved that perfectly lately.

Thank you for the links to the pictures.

I don't like this outfit very much. The color of the cardigan/jacket is ok, but other than that the clothes seem too big for her.

But, she is smiling and radint as usual, and that makes a beautiful princess regardless of her outfit!

That is one sloppily put together outfit. It just shows that no effort was put into it whatsoever. Letizia needs to realize that she is now Princess of Asturias and not a tv correspondent (even those won't go near this outfit). More effort needs to go into her selection of clothes as well as piecing together what looks good and what doesn't, hire a stylist if she's so lacking in that department.

The thing with Letizia I have noticed is when she puts in even a little effort, she gets huge rewards. But, when she doesn't, she looks sloppy and shows a complete disregard for her appearance, which IMO, is not good for a public figure.
