The purple clutch - looks like another accessory destined to be added to any possible outfit before it has to be returned to the designer

I love the skirt, it is a repeat, very elegant and makes a wonderful outfit with the right jacket, shoes etc (especially in 2006)

Unfortunately this time it is combined with another pair of party sandals, a brown purse and a jacket that looks like the top of a bathrobe. Complete mismatch between casual stuff and a suitable wardrobe for a royal event.

I'd say a terrible mix rather than an ugly outfit. The jacket and the skirt are ok but I don't like them together.
Same shoes she wore yesterday but different colour.
The ones she wore yesterday were almost ok though I didn't like them with that dress and on that event. Today's ones are ugly, on any event.
IMO, of course.

Thumbs down

Are the white shoes just the same as yesterday's? Did she buy them in all colours as she did with the platform shoes
I don't like them, especially for engagements. They look good for vacations.

I totally agree. She is getting boring and predictable. I guess that for the next months we will see her with those awful sandals in every possible colours and trying to mix old and new stuff that doesn´t mix at all. I think she should look for professional stylist to help her to recycle her beautiful clothes with style without looking so cheap

I really love this skirt on Letizia and its nice how she combined it with a different jacket each time to pick out the colours in the skirt. I agree about 2006 being the best look.

But goodness what was she thinking today - she wore that jacket at a football match a few years back (2006 Germany World Cup ?) and then combining it with this delicate chiffon skirt was a disaster. The shoes are awful (they look slightly better in the purple colour yesterday) and the bag doesnt match. Enough said by me i dont want to see this combination ever again

I agree: the shoes from yesterday were better than these ones. I don´t like them in white, while I quite liked them in purple.
About the outfit, I also agree: beautiful skirt, but the jacket (though I like it) doesn´t match with the skirt, and either with the event.

This outfit is completely mismatched, IMO. The fabric of the jacket doesn't work with the fabric of the skirt-heavy against chiffon. Also, the jacket looks like it is cream, and the white of the skirt is a cool tone; they don't work. She needs to get rid of the strappy shoes. They are really unflattering.

Today is for a business forum, she should wear a more formal suit. I like the purple shoes better too. Yesterday was for a design award with many artists and designers, a patterned dress, purple dress were appropriate and fun.
Perhaps she got those shoes on designer pre-sale, buy one get one free.

Another terribly mismatched outfit.
Platform shoes, dull secretary slacks, cheap girlish blouse and a 1970s hippie community shawl? It's quite an achievement to wear four different styles which fight each other at once. And worn for an official audience, on top of it... a no-go.

She is just not looking like a CP these days. She is lacking the regal elegance that she used to have, imho. Perhaps it is time for a serious chat with her stylist....

The 40 Euros shirt from Mango looks like it is "made with plastic 100%", though the Mango website says it is 100% silk!?
The pants look too casual (she should have worn a nice belt, at least!) and I don't like the scarf.
The whole outfit looks cheap and unclassy, IMO of course. Ok for going shopping!

Sorry, but I begin to like very much the way, CP Letizia dresses now, inclusive her shoes. Pahhhhh, if I had such a pair of sandals!! ( perhaps for me not with the plateau) .

Another weird and mismatched outfit - formal suit trousers with a cheap (and cheap looking blouse) and I don't get the scarf. Most times Letizia is wearing scarfs it reminds me of keffiyeh scarves, wrapped around her neck like arabian desert people do, far from elegant.

Letizia simply doesn't fit the target group of this casual Mango and Zara stuff, not only because of the lacking quality (a royal is supposed to look better than the average woman on the street) but also because such clothes or sandals are usually worn by much younger women, in their late teens or twenties. Letizia is almost 37 and partly dresses like a girlie
