The pants are not bad if you look at it worn by the model (on Mango's site).
What makes it look bad is that the pants were a size too big matched with a shapless size bigger jacket and a loose/ish top.
Such pants have to fit perfectly and matched with a tight top/fitted short jacket and nice pumps and a nice chunky necklace added to the look.

I like this brown jacket quite much, but not her pants.

I always think that there are always soemone who keeps to criticize Princess Letizia, her clothes, her personalities, her background, even how her daughers dressed. I know everyone has freedom of speaking but I can't keep silence when the criticism is being much harsh and that it simply like a personal attack. Hey, wearing clothes with resonable price are a very normal human being, even royalty need not to wear international brands with extremely expensive price when in public every time, especially the one has a very busy schedule. More, a lovely royalty should get close to the people, wearing high fashion just make her to be within sight but not within reach! I see Letizia is a warm person who understand her priority well, and that's why people respect her. I enjoy to see a beautiful woman buys and wears clothes by her own choice and creativity, even some of the mix and match may be not very well but still a good try.

I would like to begin by apologizing to any member of TRF if my comments posted yesterday about Letizia's clothes/shoes were offensive. I certainly did not mean to come across that way. Quite the contrary, Letizia for the most part is one of my favorite royals, and her style is one of the things I admire about her most. Where my criticism stems from are certain items of clothes/shoes that in my opinion were not that attractive on her. I know that you can look good and have nice clothes in any price range, but I was merely pointing out that I personally thought that some of her clothes/shoes were either poorly fitted or unattractive, in my opinion. I have learned quite a lot about Letizia in the last 24 hours from members of TRF, and I appreciate all your comments. I think it is wonderful that she really supports Spanish designers and the Spanish fashion industry (whether I like their creations or not), and as I just learned from reading Ikram's post that pieces Letizia wore sell for millions and help the Spanish economy I think that is really wonderful. Personally, I just enjoy looking at the fashions of not only Letizia, but also many other stylish royals that are profiled on this forum. I love seeing what they wear, and I could only wish to have some of the beautiful clothes shown here. What my concerns were about were that some of her clothing pieces lately have not been as attractive as I have seen in past posts, which led me to wonder what was going on, as if someone who may have been advising her was not around anymore. I later learned that the SRF doesn't have stylists, so it was more of what was available from the designers. I know we all have our own personal taste and style, and I really don't care if Letizia wears sweats and tshirts on her own time. But I think that when she steps out representing Spain, she should go back to when she was always stylish and chic, instead of some of her more recent choices, which, IMO, have looked more appropriate for either going to a club or something like that. I also understand that everyone has their own opinions about everything, and I quite honestly love reading everyone's viewpoints. I know no one called me out about my comments, but I just wanted to make clear I had no intention of being rude or offensive to Letizia or any member of TRF, if in fact my comments were taken like I was attacking her,b/c I was not. I love TRF and really enjoy all that they offer, and enjoy reading comments from all the members. Peace and blessings to you all.

With all due respect, but certain royal ladies wear ill-fitted creation by Natan, they are duly criticised for doing so.

I feel that criticism aimed at Crown Princess Letizia's fashion choices has nothing to do with price tags, but more tailoring. She is free to wear what she wants. However, ill-fitted or mismatched clothes from both luxury and affordable brands look bad. No one will criticise her for wearing a properly-tailored Mango dress/shirt/jacket. I believe that it is deemed expedient for Crown Princess Letizia to acquire a few suits/dresses/trousers from luxe brands, because these clothes will be tailored to fit her and can be recycled in many ways later.

I love Letizia's grey dress. This is one of the best dresses on her. I love her shoes, her purse and her black coat.

I think Letizia purposedly didn't want to wear the pants short like the Mango model since it's still winter. That probably also resulted in the pants looking a bit loose around the thighs since she didn't take the right size.

A couple of weeks ago, the Spanish fashion legend Elio Berhnanyer criticized Sofia and Elena for wearing luxious brands like Valentino, Dior, Chanel instead of supporting the Spanish fashion in magazine 'ten minutes'. There was not much media interest at the Queen or the infantas, if the same criticism was for Letizia, we already saw them all over the heart programs or internets. Like I said before, being modest is the best option for the current economic situation. She always dressed decently for the big occasions such as the PoA awards or the National day, if she liked to experiment fashion a bit for the less major events, the Spanish media rather welcomed the change (I always got the impression that the pink press didn't like Varela much, perhaps a bit jealous of his luck), hits or misses, I doubt most people really cared.

I know Magrit has always been a well known brand in Spain with many important clients. But they just launched the online shop last Sept and tries to be a global brand like Zara or Mango.

Cool

I don't like her pants outfit for the reason that everyone else is dressed for a ceremony and she appears too casual. This outfit looks thrown together with little thought put into it. I like Letizia, but lately some of her style choices have not been the wisest. If the men are dressed in very nice suits and the women are dressed in nice dresses, then one should follow by wearing a more elegant pantsuit, dress, or skirt and top etc. Letizia's latest outfit is appropriate for shopping or lunch, but not for a ceremony. It could be construed that she felt that this appearance was not that important to dress more formally. I applaud and support her for sticking with Spanish designers.

I love the top half of the outfit, but the shoes and 3/4 are horrible.

Love the grey dress, she looks wonderful in these pictures.

The Princess Letizia has broken a stereotype, maybe the Queens and Princesses must not dress always High Couture designs. If she has to represent the Spanish... to dress in street brands, to experiment with trends, have successes and mistakes with the fashion ... it is what the Spanish women do normally. And if sometimes she has mistakes like these trousers, she has them. High Couture or street brands, classic clothes or modern clothes ... all the women, queens or princesses, have mistakes... a wrong cut, a horrible print, too brilliant fabrics...

Initially the Princess always was dressing correct, how it is supposed that she had to go. And the people were thinking that it was making her too serious and distant. I believe that when she discovered that she was doing what she was doing they were going to speak about her, she decided to liberate herself. Because probably a dinner, an act in the Congress or a visit to a school, do not need the same type of clothes.

Also I believe that now she wants to be more comfortable, and it has done that she does not go elegantly enought in some acts, specially out of Madrid. But probably it is a consequence of her intense agenda, of the geography of Spain and of the economic cuts. There are times that the trip in helicopter or by train it is longer than the act, and since she has gone out of Palace dressed, brushed and made up have passed two hours. I believe that the practical sense has won to the image.

Lula, I see your point. Yes we all do mistakes and so does the royal family and yes you can do mistakes on high designers as well as average designers but Letizia has not made one or two mistakes she has made a dozen. if we talk about economic cuts then why buy ill-flattering or size too big pieces instead of recycling many of her lovely past outfits?

I do know that Letizia supports the Spanish fashion industry and has been in many Valera, Mango & Zara outfits, why not discover other names? Once in a while she dresses in other Spanish designers which look good but she tends to always go back to Mango & Valera.

Dazzling, probably to have a big wardrobe is easier when you pay a stylist who does everything or when you go to do your shopping to London or Paris. And partly it is normal that they have their designeres of reference, because or you have a lot of free time or pay someone who devotes exclusively to it ... or it is impossible that these women have time to see all the collections, to go to the shops, tried the clothes...

The majority of the clothes of the Princesses Maxima and Mathilde are of Natan, and only in some occasions they dress other designers. So what Princess Letizia does, it is not so strange. What happens is that instead of Armani or Valentino, she dresses Armand Bassi, Adolfo Dominguez, Modesto Lomba...

And though it is one to one, little by little the Princess has dressed clothes of many Spanish designers... something that about the Queen and the Infantas it is not possible to say.

Yes, the majority of the clothes of Mathilde is of Natan but Maxima is not. You can see here Maxima's choices.

No one is attacking Letizia personally! Not sure why some are apologizing for their comments on her clothing choices. The thread is about her daytime fashion, and the posts reflect that her choices have been dismal more often than not. Everyone understands that the economy is horrific, but surely she can dress in a way where she is dressed for the occasion in a manner befitting a crown princess and where her clothes are tailored to fit her tiny frame. I'm sure she is a lovely woman personally, but her clothing choices look ridiculous for a woman in her position and age group

I fail to see that point. It is her job to look appropriate / make an effort regarding appearance and calling her agenda intense is probably right but only compared to other members of the SRF, like Infanta Elena. Letizia has 3, maybe 4 acts per week, very often, as you mention, the act itself is even shorter that the travel to get there. What is so difficult about chosing appropriate clothes, brushing etc for these events that last 2 or 3 hours, with either morning or afternoon out of the limelight? What is keeping her from doing so, the time issue is nothing compared to business women on senior management who have to look good and perform (not only walking behind the boss and smile) 10 or more hours per day, at least five days per week?

I agree with Dazzling, in the past months it has always been Mango, Zara or Varela, the days of Dominguez or Caprile have long gone. Letizia dresses Burberry, a foreign high end designer quite frequently, why not the same in Spain, the fashion she is supposed to promote?
