Queen Letizia of Spain gave us major Chanel vibes when she stepped out in a stunning blazer dress on Friday – and it has a very special meaning behind it. A firm believer in sustainable fashion, the monarch was a picture of poise in her recycled midi, which she first wore 15 years ago at her daughter Princess Leonor's christening. 

Attending the ceremony of the delivery of the National Flag to the ACAVIET (Aviation Academy of the Army) in Colmenar Viejo, Letizia's latest look certainly made an impression.

Teaming her tweed frock with brown criss-cross stilettos by Magrit, the mum-of-two swept her brunette locks into a low and sleek chignon, rocking a brown smokey eyeshadow complete with statement dark lashes.
