Queen Letizia of Spain is my royal style icon! I adore how she dresses so effortlessly, no matter the occasion. From her boho chic casual outfits she rocks on vacation, to her power suits in bold colors, and then perfectly fitted & feminine dresses – she never misses. She gives off a polished, assured air that definitely exudes queenliness. I also love that she chooses pieces that are mature, yet still modern and fresh. The Queen is 50 years old, but she doesn’t dress like it! She is an inspiration to me in that it doesn’t matter your age – it can’t stop you from wearing what you love and looking absolutely killer in it.
If you are wanting to channel her queenly energy and chic up your wardrobe, here is everything to know on how to dress like Queen Letizia!

She’s often seen is light and airy neutral dresses for casual occasions. She also isn’t afraid of wearing pops of color – like that iconic pink patterned mini dress she rocked shown above. If you are wanting to recreate her style, opt for flowy, beachy, and boho patterned dresses. She usually goes for a longer length of dress, but rocks any inseam as long as it isn’t too fitted of a silhouette.

Here is a super easy to throw on outfit that you can wear this summer! Tuck a tank into a midi skirt, and don’t forget your espadrilles and straw bag. You’ll look polished and put together but still totally comfortable.

If a dress just isn’t practical for every day, you can always turn to a chic pair of belted high-waist shorts! Go for this more tailored look vs. denim cut-offs. I love the contrast between the polished shorts and the rustic espadrilles.

Queen Letizia’s shoe game is on another level! The high heels she rocks are beyond gorgeous, but I admit I’m way more jealous of her insane espadrille shoe collection! I love that she sticks to this Spanish style and pairs espadrille wedges, flats, and sandals with all her casual looks. She’s got so many colors – navy, black, brown, hot pink and coral espadrilles (just to name a few).

A straw tote is such a European staple and Queen Letizia loves to rock them with many of her looks! I’ve also seen her carry a tote in an ikat pattern.

Heels are a must. Queen Letizia goes loves slingbacks or classic pumps to complete the look which match the 50s/60s polished vibe she goes for.

It’s no surprise that Letizia often wears creations from designer Carolina Herrera. It’s her go-to designer for big events, like King Charles III recent coronation. She often wears bags and clutches from the fashion house.
