While she may have a soft spot for non-Spanish brands such as Hugo Boss and Carolina Herrera, Queen Letizia of Spain loves to shop locally. The royal attended the traditional ceremony of Pascua Militar, a commemoration that dates back to the 18 century, wearing a Spanish-made dress by Felipe Varela.

The royal looked elegant as ever in the wine-red dress which featured long sleeves, a rounded neckline, a floor-length silhouette and subtle lace panels. She completed her look by stepping out in a pair of crimson high heels by her go-to shoe designer Magrit and layered up by encasing herself in a faux-fur trimmed cape.

Experimentation is a phrase that has become synonymous with Queen Letizia's style. The Spanish royal is truly daring in the wardrobe department. However, on occasion, she likes to strip it back and showcase a timeless look to add to her archive of showstopping pieces.
