Queen Letizia makes ‘slow fashion’ move by wearing Queen Sofía’s dress from 45 years ago | Royal | News

The New Year’s reception for the accredited Diplomatic Corps in Spain saw Letizia, 49, sporting an emerald green satin skirt with a floral embroidered chiffon bodice.

At the time, Sofía designed it with a bow belt, traditional jewelry and a small clutch.

Letizia, in what was probably an attempt to modernize the look, paired the dress with a pair of earrings from Spanish jewelry brand Tous and used the belt without the bow.

Spanish publication Vanitatis said of real fashion: “Letizia is committed to more accessible fashion than her counterparts, away from large international companies.

“This formula has worked for her for years.

“In 2021, she added an extra layer, introducing slow fashion into her wardrobe, which goes hand in hand with small brands, mostly run by women, from whom she often chooses to buy.”

Taking advantage of the mother-in-law’s archive could be a key element in Letizia’s relatively low spending on fashion.

Recent UFO No More research data showed that Letizia was the royal who spent the least amount of time dressing up for her duties last year.

Comparing her clothes with those of Queen Maxima of the Netherlands; Queen Matilda of Belgium; Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden; Maria, Crown Princess of Denmark; Mette-Marit, Crown Princess of Norway, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, it turned out that the Queen of Spain chose more affordable dresses for her official engagements than the rest.

While she was spotted with 111 new pieces – the second highest number among the eight women – on average, each cost less than Kate’s 119 pieces, which was the highest-spending royal.

According to data provided by UFO No More, Letizia spent € 301 (approximately £ 250) per purchase.
