Much has been said about the Meghan Markle Effect, aka her ability to make anything she wears sell out. Markle—and certainly Kate Middleton—has sellout powers in spades, but plenty of other royals do too. Case in point: Queen Letizia of Spain, who regularly wears affordable items, including Steve Madden shoes.
Photographed in Oviedo, Spain, Queen Letizia wore the ultimate on-trend budget buy: Zara’s Plaid Top ($40). She styled it with sophisticated royalty-worthy pieces: slim black trousers, pointy-toe pumps, and a classic black bag. The plaid trend, of course, comes back like clockwork every fall—we’ve already shown you how to wear plaid blazers and pants, but a sleek and work-appropriate blouse is one of the easiest ways to try it right now.
