She's one of Europe’s most stylish royals, and on Tuesday Queen Letizia of Spain proved once again why she's a favourite with fashion fans when she stepped out in a daring leather and geometric print outfit. The wife of King Felipe was attending a World Mental Health Day event in Madrid, and certainly made an entrance in the head-turning ensemble. The 46-year-old picked a distinctive tan leather pencil skirt by Hugo Boss featuring bold orange and purple panels, which she teamed with a matching geometric print short-sleeved sweater in the same bright shades.
This glam look is ideal for autumn dressing
Letizia picked simple accessories to compliment the bold look, including a chic tan coat which she wore draped over her shoulders and a pair of matching heeled court shoes. She carried an orange clutch bag and limited her jewellery to a pair of simple studded earrings. She wore her brunette hair loose and glossy and went for an understated makeup look consisting of subtly shimmering eyes and nude glossy lips.

During the day, the mother-of-two took part in a discussion on the subject of "inclusive education, positive mental health" at the country's Palace of the Parliament. She later joined her husband in welcoming Chile's President Sebastian Pinera and his wife Cecilia Morel for lunch at Zarzuela Palace, and chose to stay in the same outfit rather than get changed – and who can blame her!
Letizia recently caused a stampede when she was spotted wearing a £100 dress from Spanish high street label Massimo Dutti. She looked gorgeous in the super feminine, white ankle-length number that featured a navy square pattern while visiting Salamanca city last month. Fans rushed to copy her look, causing a sell-out on the store's website, but it is now back in stock. Thanks to its popularity the brand has also released the reverse version of the dress in time for the new season – a navy frock with white squares to suit the cooler, autumn months.
