My thoughts on both outfits:
Funeral Outfit - It's a little plain but acceptable for the occasion. She could have doen a little more with her hair, makeup & jewelry to polish up the look.
The Gray & Pink Outfit - OMGoodness, don't like the top, it's too big and I don't think that it would look good with anything. The pink skirt looks too big and "droopy". The whole outfit is poorly put together and the individual pieces are just aweful by themselves.

Personally, I like to see a princess in a skirt or dress whenever/wherever possible, and particularly at weddings and memorial services or funerals. I agree with you, dazzling. A t-shirt would have been okay had it been higher on the neck and a dressier fabric, like a shell or sleeveless blouse.

I was continueing my original reply on this topic (post #210) since you also compared her to her MIL. Most women at the funeral didn 't dress as formal as Sofia, but it didn't mean they wore inappropriate clothes. Perhaps Letizia just preferred a bit more relaxed, yet formal enough look like her most of her Borbon relatives.

May 24, 2011 - Letizia in a navy blue suit matched with a striped t-shirt.
The striped top looks like something she can enjoy in Mallorca, the suit is a bit too shiny IMO unless its not but pictures bad.

The navy blue suite is nice, but I don't like the striped t-shirt. Maybe I'm wrong but IMO the striped t-shirt is too casual. It would have been better a white blouse.

I agree with Marika. The suit is ok but the t-shirt is too casual and looks big for Letizia.

Wow, what is going on with this look? None of the pieces fit, and the top doesn't belong with the suit. And while I do like her hair parted on the side, this isn't a good look.

Letizia's style isn't "glamour," and that's fine. But it certainly isn't "business." She looks sloppy, sad to say.

I only like the jacket here. I like the top, but with jeans, not with a suit. And no for the pants at all, too shiny and the material isn't right, makes it all wrinkly.

Jeans, yes. Came to my mind when I saw that, too. Very casual and sloppy look. But I've seen worse I'm afraid. In fact I think that royal blue suits her very well and I love her hair parted on the side.

personally, i don't like letizia's style. i think she has a bad posture(look at the shoulders, how high they are) and that makes her looks worse.

Good grief. What is she thinking when she dresses like this? Letizia's fashion sense just seems to be getting worse and worse. Such a shame...

The whole looks is a recycle, featured in the Spanish magazines before. A suit with a striped t-shirt is a cool and fashionable look, very in fashion. These days the trend is more relaxed even for the business look. The jacket has big shoulder pads just like most of Varela's suits (that's why I always think she should dump Varela), that's why her shoulders appeared high.

Unnecessary big shoulder pads

If it was a striped shirt I would not mind but at the end of the day as a future Queen sometimes fashion is not the right step you should take.

Letizia also uses this suit with a pretty white blouse sometimes - which is usually a nice business-look. With this striped shirt and rather messy hair she looked quite sloppy.
