Moving towards What Queen Letizia wore – Queen Letizia of Spain was looking stylish, professional and elegant in a familiar outfit.
Letizia brought back her Inés Martín Alcalde pinstriped suit that she first wore in February 2022 at the Art-Fair inauguration.
The €420 suit consists of a pinstripe navy jacket and matching trousers. The blazer features shoulder pads, double-breasted button fastening, and a square pocket with a sash at the waistline and comes with matching high-waisted tuxedo-style trousers.
Today, Letizia paired the suit with burgundy Magrit pumps
And a matching handbag.
