Duke, Spanish men usually wears suits, but the dress code for women seems to be much more flexible. I don't think Felipe has that many new clothes, there was a report last year saying JC hadn't been buying any new suit the last 4 years.

Cardi, blouse and pants looked appropriate to me for visiting the residence of the students. Spanish men wear suits mostly, but women don't have to dress so formally all the time, the women at the occasion didn't dress more formal than Letizia.
I don't think Zarzuela has strict protocol on dressing. It seems the Palace is not paying that much for Leti's clothes (compared to royals from other countries), she does her own hair and makeup almost all the time by herself except for galas, the Palace likely doesn't care if she wears expensive or cheap clothes.

Beautiful color! Seems like something is missing in the overall look, however.

I love how the red/orange blouse brightens up the whole look.

June 6, 2012 - Letizia in a new tweed dress with a matching jacket. Lovely outfit though not fond of the color too much. Wrong shoes with the look, she should've worn closed heels.

Pretty suit, and I do agree with you that the color isn't the best.

Letizia often forgets to match the shade of her makeup to her neck, and now it looks like when she applies sunless tanner to her legs she is missing her ankles and feet. Not a good look.

Pretty suit, I quite like the fit but the color is a little meh. But, she hasn't worn gray in awhile.

Nice suit! The color looks good on her.

Great suit but the color does not flatter her.

The beige washes her out a little bit. I do like the design on the jacket.

The outfit matches her facial expression... Just bleh. It needs some color somewhere! A smile would help.. unless the timing of the photo called for such a serious look.

There are videos posted under F&L's current events for this particular day, and she seems serious in those as well.

Thank you, Emmily. I was just looking at another blog with several pics of the event and she was mostly serious-looking in them, as well. However, there were a few where she was smiling and talking to Felipe, albeit a small smile! :)

I like the suit but the color washes her out. I agree that a smile would help. :-)

Agree with the posters here about the outfit; it's nice and I'm glad to see her in a dress for daytime, but it could have been a better color. She looks too pale and wan. And I didn't care for the double rows of pockets on the jacket; just one set (preferably the bottom) would have been enough, if any at all. I truly dislike those style of housedress-type pockets!

The dress and the jacket are beautiful and the colour is perfect, summery and nice. I don't think that the colour washes her out in anyway.

The Prince of Viana Awards has always been a more solemn event that includes paying a tribute to the Kings of Navarre.

I like the color of the outfit (don't know which color would have been better with this style) except she has worn a few beige suits the last few days. The raw edges are very nice.

I love the style of the suit, ok, the mono colour of dress & jacket is a bit bland but still Letizia is dressed a million times better than her usual ill fitted pants, children's cardiagans or cheap blouses. This outfit is one of the few in recent times that hits the bar in terms of suitability.

I think a few colour touches would have been fantastic, but I agree that the raw edges gives the combo a nice pizzaz. She looks tired though.
