The King and Queen of Spain held an audience with the Spanish athletes who participated in this year's Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang.
Queen Letizia looked like she was part of the squad wearing the national team colours of white and red.
We saw the return of her season-favorite red suede boots by Magrit, and the patterned Carolina Herrera skirt which Letizia first for a meeting with the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) last December.
Today she teamed it with a new winter white turtleneck top. It is the Hugo Boss 'Iddyana' knit jumper from the BOSS Orange line. Originally retailing for £94.99, it has now been reduced to £71.24 at Zalando.
Letizia completed the ensemble with her TOUS cultured freshwater pearl drop earrings.

These red boots make quite the statement. I would have preferred this outfit with a black top. The white is very summery looking.

In summer in Madrid, it's around 32Celsius degrees..I promise you nobody will wear that top, ha!!

Iberia, thanks for posting in English. You make interesting comments that I enjoy. I appreciate your effort because I know it's not easy.

I know what you mean, Laura. This top is a bit off-white 😀. Certainly a different shade to the white in the pattern on the dress, which doesn’t work for me, although I realise that’s just nitpicking! I don’t have a problem with bold fashion statements, and there is nothing wrong with wearing eye-catching boots, but I can’t help it- they look SO ‘Pretty Woman’ to me...

These boots are called "musketeers", similar to worn once by French musketeers, they are on trend this winter in Spain. A bit controversial outside, I think. Course not to go unnoticed....ha!!

Thank you for that context, Iberia. I do not like these boots and was beginning to wonder if I would have to stop seeing the Queen as my style icon. Now that you say the boots are on trend in Spain, I can see why they are being worn and will be patient until they go out of style ;-)

Iberia - I love your 'ha!' For me it fits the Spanish context perfectly :)

I like the red boots this time around but the white turtleneck gives the outfit a casual look. A white blouse or white jacket (with red top inside) would have looked more dressy. The pattern on the skirt is eye catching.

Totally agree Sandy!! I apologize for my English, I'm a 48 years old student...ha!!

Iberia your English is fine. Much better than my Spanish.
9/3/2018 05:08:20 am
Iberia, your English is excellent, but you should drop the "ha" that you put at the end of your comments. It sounds flippant and insincere.
8/3/2018 05:15:55 am
Love the pattern on the skirt not so much the top though.
9/3/2018 06:14:18 pm
Laura sorry, however in Spain we use that a lot in our language , we laughed at ourselves overall, it must be a educational or cultural thing..
12/3/2018 12:28:42 am
Cultural differences explain a lot. FYI flippant means not showing a serious attitude…nothing to do with being drugged.

Geneviève, I have told that Mathilde of Belgium and Máxima of the Netherlands own these boots too.

Those red boots are one of the few things in Letizia's wardrobe that I don't like. She seems to love them but whenever she wears them she seems to go overboard on the colour red. I agree with Beata & Genevieve and the 'Pretty Woman' comment made me laugh.
11/3/2018 10:13:29 pm
The red colour is the Spanish mark and we wear it as a normal thing , if you don't know the Spanish culture is very difficult than you can understand. Nowadays women here are very bold and feminist, maybe you have heard about the women strike that our Queen has supported.

I simply love this skirt and am delighted to get such a good look at it. I also have reservations about the boots and think the Pretty Woman quip is on the mark. However I've seen them on others now and am resigned to sitting out this fashion until it fades. I see nothing wrong in pairing the skirt with a white too, a print like that cries out for changed accessorising. The look strikes me as a stylish take on the team colours Ha!
