I like this outfit. Although it would be better, if the jacket wouldn´t be so shiny, but the skirt is great, it´s quite original. And the colour is beautiful. Her hair looks nice.

Bad outfin - too shiny, bad shoes, too much on the top part.
And the scirt - why does she wear curtain?

I love the skirt, it´s gorgeous and the colour is really nice. I don´t like the top part, though. It would be nice as a suit, but not as gala outfit. And her hair looks too casual, IMO. Not her best outfit, indeed.

I actually like this outfit, very different. The skirt is amazing. I do think that the top needs a little something, like a necklace or some great earrings. Overall, fun, youthful and appropriate and very cutting edge. Her hair does look better today.

OMG . Dont like the outfit. The jacket ist nice, but dont match with this skirt. It would be better looking with a pencil skirt. And the shoes .

Thanks for the photos!
Most of Crown Princess Letizia's recent ensembles are not my cup of tea: unpolished and awkward. At the same time, I have to say that her complexion is absolutely flawless. Although her hair is in need of trimming and/or proper styling, it looked gorgeous

I think the skirt is lovely and something really different - i do like the contrast with the dark top but would have preferred it to a differnt material and more formal. The jacket as everyone has already said is too shinny but overall the colour is lovely on Letizia

The whole outfit is too much for me but I like the jacket and the top looks lovely! not fond of the skirt.

Is that a new outfit from Felipe Varela??

Why did she wear these shoes with such an outfit?
All pieces are lovely - the skirt is interesting; as well as the top.
But something's weird about this outfit. I don't like it. ... I think it's the combination of the elegant skirt and the top, which is way too casual.
The jacket is quite out of place.
The hairdo is nice, but it starts to get boring to see the same hairdo at nearly all events. At least it's elegant.

I like the skirt, it's soft and feminine and Letizia can really pull of those looks. But, I just wish this was a dress instead of a skirt. She could have worn a sleeveless/strapless dress with a bolero jacket. IMO, that would be a more put together look. Also, enough with the soft curls, solemn occasions require a more formal hairstyle such as an updo. Not only does it look formal but also classier.

Btw, I like the shiny jacket, it might have looked better if it were a bolero style though. But, I absolutely hate the blouse. Thankfully, the shoes can't be seen in too many pictures, at least the ones I have seen.

It must be, a typical Varela cutting. She had at least 10 similar cut jackets from Varela the first 3 years (before Sofia was born). Varela always has this strange 'talent' of pairing a beautiful skirt with an office jacket, for example, her green outfit at the wedding of Hamzah and Noor, her pink outfit at the wedding of Felipe's cousin, as if he didn't know how to design a stylish jacket.

Completely agree. If it were a dress, she could wear it in the future galas since she doesn't have many gala gowns to recycle.

This skirt with a simple white shirt - remember Rania's style at Letizia's wedding?- would have looked so much better. Not just better. IMO it would have been a very elegant appearance.

The skirt is adorable. Even the top works with it, although I'm not a big fan of it, but the jacket except for the color it doesn't match. Perhaps it was for her not to look so small, but is hideous

The skirt is very pretty. Love the color. But the blazer doesn't go at all with it. Looks very mismatched.
