When it comes to sophisticated style, few do it with the same aplomb as the royal family. A fact Spain’s famously fashionable Queen Letizia proved this week when she stepped out at a conference in Madrid looking seasonally fresh in a powder blue linen suit.
Letizia, who reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 last week, made her first public appearance since her diagnosis at the fifth annual Informative Treatment of Disabilities In Media conference. She paired her costume – which featured ankle-length straight pants – with a cream top and a pair of beige wedge espadrilles, along with a mask.
The shoes in particular have become something of a signature summer style for the queen, who has been seen sporting the sensible yet fashionable look on numerous occasions over the years, especially in warmer weather. Obviously, his daughters, Crown Princess Leonor and Princess Sofia, also took to the style advice, as they were also seen wearing wraparound espadrille heels during a visit to the Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain. , earlier this month. a fitting homage to Dali, himself a fan of flat espadrilles.
Of course, the look is a natural fit for the Spanish Royal Family. After all, rope-soled shoes have their origins in 13th-century Spain, when the flat version of the style was the everyday shoe of the Basque and Catalan regions. It wasn’t until the 1970s when Yves Saint Laurent developed the wedge-heeled iterations that the Queen favors today, but Letizia’s affinity for them with her sophisticated sense of modern fashion proves that some classics don’t. never go out of style.
