The skirt is nice. I like it better with a jacket in 2005 (more formal) than a 29.99 sweater from Zara or Mango.

I LOVE her shoes in 2005 with the sheer black stockings!! Soo much more flatterering and feminine than those awful platforms she insists on wearing.
If she has to wear that skirt, I also prefer it with the jacket but I would like it even more if she chose Not to wear it again! :)

Nice skirt. But whole outfit reminds me schoolgirl's uniform.
I like shoes from 2005.

Yes , I agree. She is a natural beauty. No need heavy make up, expensive clothes, she is as simple as beautiful!

Everyone took the words right out of my mouth - this outfit looks a like a schoolgirl's
uniform. The open neck shirt is waaaay too casual looking.
Letizia needs to wear some jewelry. A beautiful string of pearls or some colorful costume jewelry - a brooch on the jacket would give it some pizazz.
Some days, Letizia really looks like she just throws herself together with very little thought and/or imagination.

I couldn't agree with you more, pamk! I really don't understand why as she used to appear so well put together.

for example today. doing grocery shopping or attending an event representing the srf? hard to tell. the outfit looks something between very ordinary and cheap and does only stress how incredibly thin or frail letizia looks.

I'm a bit confused here. I agree that she was a dashing beauty when she met her prince, got engaged etc.
Today she is beautiful, too, even so that it seems to be a priority. But she's beautiful in a different, not-so-natural-looking way. I miss her old natural smile.

You are right, Duke of Marmalade. The outfit is very ordinary; however, the scarf added a nice touch. Letizia seems to have a great scarf collection.

This scarf is old. I don´t know how many times I´ve already see it. I agree, this outfit is ordinary, it isn´t appropriate for attending an event as princess. Although I must say she looks pretty despite her outfit.

Her clothes were very appropriate for visiting a hospital. She could have worn flat boots, perhaps she just used to wear those platforms.

Is the ordinary street look enough for a hospital? For an audience? A royal remains a royal no matter where the event takes place or what it is about.

The late Queen Mother did not go in rags & tatters when visiting the victims of WW II bombing around London, neither does her daughter QE II when opening hospitals, and neither does Queen Rania when she attends one of her glitzy fundraising galas to raise money for the poor. I am glad to see that there are at least some royals around these days, even from the younger generation, who understand what "being royal" means in terms of outside impression. Letizia clearly doesn't.
