If the thought of skirt suits conjures up images of Melanie Griffith’s memorable, albeit dated, turn in Working Girl, let Queen Letizia’s latest change your mind. The Spanish royal and fashion pro stepped out to celebrate the anniversary of the ‘El Bosco’ exhibition at the Prado Museum, looking every bit polished and contemporary in a pencil skirt and coordinating jacket.
No, the silhouette is nothing new, but the bold fabrication — a faux croc finish — gives the ensemble a cool factor not usually associated with your typical skirt sets. Add to that her sleek clutch, instead of a bulky tote, and a sharp printed top, and the resulting look is fresh, never dowdy. In fact, it might just be the slick play on work wear you need for tomorrow. Read on to get inspired.
