When I found out that Who What Wear readers have been loving these on-sale Franco Sarto shoes from Nordstrom, I immediately thought of Queen Letizia. She recently wore the very same trend—lug-sole loafers—to great effect. While you can reliably find her in pointy-toe pumps, she gave her feet a break in a pair of Martinelli loafers while attending a journalism seminar in Logrono, Spain.
To complete the look, Queen Letizia wore a Lottusse leather trench coat, Pomandère trousers, a Nina Ricci handbag, and Gold & Roses earrings. While I love a good tiara moment as much as the next person, I’m always intrigued to see what royals wear for more casual occasions. In this instance, her trousers and flat shoes strike the perfect balance between formality and approachability.
