Queen Letizia’s Black Striped Dress Is Proof That Recycling Outfits Is Easy
Not only is Queen Letizia unafraid to re-wear her favorite clothes, but she's apparently just as comfortable repeating an entire outfit. This style icon just attended an event wearing the exact same ensemble as she wore in Dec., even down to the accessories. And once you see Queen Letizia's black striped dress look, you'll understand why she wore it twice.
On Weds., the Spanish royals attended the World Law Congress at Madrid's Royal Theatre, where King Felipe was presented with the World Peace and Liberty award. The 46-year-old Queen, who is herself quite the philanthropist, looked downright stunning while showing her support from the sidelines.
Queen Letizia got all dressed up in a Carolina Herrera fit-and-flare midi. Cut from Italian silk faille, it's black with white stripes and has three-quarter sleeves. The fitted bodice extends into a puffy pleated skirt fit for a princess (or rather, a queen).
You might remember this timeless striped dress from the royals' recent visit to South America in early Dec. In fact, she repeated the whole look — from the white leather Furla clutch to the diamond-and-pearl drop earrings — only two months later.
The cloned look is proof that the ever-fashionable Queen truly is fearless.
Whereas last time Queen Letizia wore her hair in a tidy low twist, she chose to where it down with her latest look. She also traded in her black pumps for a pair of two-toned black-and-white shoes by Spanish-based footwear brand Magrit (the same designer she wore with a houndstooth dress just two days before).
Her total and complete repeat is proof that Queen Letizia is just like you. When you find an outfit that works, you stick to it.
Everyone needs one of these recyclable ensembles hanging in their closet, and a classic black-and-white striped dress is the perfect place to start. Find a version that suits your style from The Zoe Report's favorite picks, ahead.
