On second glance, this formal jacket has absolutely nothing in common with the too-tight, too casual pants.

I thought it was a great outfit, especially without overdoing the jewelry that would have clashed with the details on the jacket. Very spring-y.

a repeated outfit from a few weeks ago
Casa de Su Majestad el Rey de España

i think it looks nice but it's too casual for the event. it's very honourable to support spanish fashion in general but i don't get why it must be the low end like zara, mango or the infamous varela, these clothes look really nice when on a day out, shopping, picking up kids from school etc but they are not good enough for professional occasions, not for a princess attending an audience and not for a business woman working in an office. given the men wear suit and tie and not shirt and jacket letizia looks quite underdressed among their guests.

why not support the low end designers on private / casual occasions and the more high end designers (who still don't charge a fortune) on professional occasions.

I agree, I don't like this outfit, especially the jacket (awful material). Colours are bad, at easter mass CP looks so fresh in light colours, here she looks sad and tired.
Shoes - nice but not for that event.

I love Letezia's choice, especialy jacket, but her shoes are unsuitable here. She needs more classical shoes here.

I totally agree with you in all points.

I don't like jacket, either. It doesn't look good on her.

Wow, i think the outfit it rather old for Letizia. The shoes are outstandingly high and uneccesary.

I agree, she looks too casual lately. She shouldn´t forget that she is a princess and dress like one. The shoes are awful beyond words.

I liked the jacket when she matched with a ladylike outfit, like here http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/May2008/PPE08052183.jpg

Totally agree on all points - and the shoes in the photo posted by Princess of Europe - it looks like there is a round black sticker on the sole part of the shoe which should have been removed before wearing -
Letizia looks like she is going on a school run to pick up the kids - not a
professional business event representing the royal family

Mango and Zara are 2 of Spain's biggest clothing retailers so it makes perfect sense for Letizia to wear their clothes. Considering the fact that Spain is currently suffering quite badly during the global recession, it would seem prudent for Letizia to firstly promote Spanish local, popular design and secondly to be seen to be wearing affordable clothing.

It's bizarre how other famous women are usually praised for wearing high street clothing yet when Letizia does it she's just condemned.

The platform on the bottom looks very uncomfortable to walk on, although I understand she wants to look taller next to the very tall prince. And the piece around her ankles looks like it belongs to a different pair of shoes. Guess it's a good thing I don't have to be fashionable.

The jacket is just too heavy for the skirt, I do think it would be great with a pair of pants or jeans though.
I do like the shoes this time, maybe they've grown on me since last time.
I agree that it seems quite casual clothing.
I wish she had not worn the outfit pretty much identically so recently.

Just of curiosity it would be interesting to try on these shoes.
They look quite stout and might be surprisingly comfortable?
Like contoured comfy sandals...

I can't recall any occasion when Letizia was condemned for wearing high street clothing?

She did get some stick for wearing the white Armani pant suit on her engagement day but I think that was not so much because Letizia wore Armani but because her fashion choice added up to the bossy self-presentation she gave that day (wearing the pants in the best sense of the meaning, the infamous let me finish etc).

Whenever Letizia wore high end fashion afterwards, Caprile comes to my mind (just naming one example - red dress at Danish wedding), she received nothing but praise. Same goes for the beautiful suits she wore in the first two years of her marriage, when Varela was still up to scratch with his designs. She never ever looked casual on royal events back in these days but usually does today, thanks to her new low end designs.

I like the jacket and the skirt but not together, and the jacket is too casual for this event.
PIC
The shoes look so cheap and ugly (fake snake)!

IMO, this is one of her worst outfits!
