How To Wear All Black To Work The Queen Letizia Way

Share

It's easy to fall into a style rut when you go into the same office with the same people day after day, but Queen Letizia's latest look will help you refresh your work wardrobe. When all else fails, black is your safest bet for looking on-trend without much effort. Let the most fashionable queen show you how to wear all black to work.

On Thurs., Queen Letizia attended a meeting at the Spanish Federation for Rare Diseases, of which she is honorary president. She looked like the ultimate boss lady, too, with a thick stack of papers in-hand and the sleekest all-black ensemble.

The royal was all business — she used to be a journalist, you know — in head-to-toe Hugo Boss. She sported a black crew-neck top over tailored trousers, both believed to be by the luxe brand she's been loyal to for so many years.

Underneath a longline wool coat, you could see the black leather trim of Queen Letizia's red-and-black tweed jacket peeking out — this one, she's worn before. The final Hugo Boss piece to complete the outfit was an office-appropriate envelope clutch.

To top it off, she set the look with a pair of glossy pumps by her favorite brand, Magrit.

Hugo Boss has won over several royal fans, in fact. You've seen Meghan Markle in the designer on multiple occasions: from the burgundy frock she wore on her last day in Australia to that unforgettable monochromatic green combo with the leather pencil skirt. Kate Middleton, on the other hand, hasn't sported the label quite as much as her husband has, but she's taken a strong liking to her bright-red Hugo Boss scarf nonetheless.

Nobody loves the German designer as much as Queen Letizia, though, who seems to sport Hugo Boss nonstop. The Spanish royal likes a good all-black outfit just as much.

And who could blame her? Monochromatic black will never go out of style. So, anytime you start slipping into that office outfit rut, turn to these classic all-black combos to bring your work look back to life.
