Who wears a belt with jeans?Huh??

At least she is still dressing like a teenage girl, not some 40-year-old business woman.

I see pretty trousers, not jeans, and because I think the blouse is wrong with them I think a belt may have made the outfit look better proportioned but hey, what do I know.
I give up now - I have no idea what about a 40-year-old business woman or what she has to do with anything or who she is  Confused.

A late response, but my comment was a dig at Isabella of Denmark who dresses like a woman twice her age.

As Maria has often said when discussing Scandinavians and how black tights are an essential to their dressing culture while in Spain is a no no, it's about diverse societies.

In Spain teenagers don't wear belts with their jeans, they just don't.  It may be different in America, Japan or the UK. Not in Spain.

Personally I don't understand why Isabella of Denmark dresses so old for her age but I'm a Spaniard.  If someone in Denmark tells me "she looks good", I will accept it - different countries, different styles.  I think we all need to listen to each other a bit more and accept that our personal opinions can be completly the opposite to a poster from another country talking about  their own style culture.

Edited, clarity.

I guess I take it one step further … who cares what they wear?  Shouldn’t what’s in their heads matter more?  They can wear clean, neat gunny sacks for all I care as long as they actually care about what they do and the people and countries they represent.  Otherwise, what’s the use?

It'll be great, more than great, it'd fantastic if what they wear wouldn't matter but FEMALE royals are not prime ministers like Angela Merkel - what they wear matter because their head of state/diplomatic role is almost inbred in their role and what's expected of them.   (I've put female on capitals because no one rarely gives a dam fashionable male royals).

What's important, and here I completly agree with you, it's that Leonor, Amalia etc really care about their responsibilities and the constituional obligations to their country.

I think I am responsible for this belt-with-jeans discussion but actually I did not see what Leonor wears as jeans and the belt suggestion was to balance the blouse so it is my opinion only.

However, my sister and her friends who are mostly Spanish and all are teens like, swap, share belts.

There is no rule and I am glad of it.

You are in no way responsible for how we all discuss fashion trends.  I will point out however that "mostly Spanish" means little when actual Spaniards are commenting on fashion trends in Spain.

Lots of people, especially those of us who were in our 20s during the 90s.

Heck, I was a teenager during the '90s (...an '80s born...) and I almost always wear a belt with jeans............

When I was younger a belt was needed. I often had the problem with jeans that they would fit my  (upper) legs, but would create a peeking gap around my waist. In some jeans my mother made some alterations, to tighten the waistband. She called them coupenaden ( = coupe seams). Another item were often the so-called high water (trouser) legs. Around 12-13 years old I had a big growth spurt and came in at around 1.80 meters. Many of my pants, which otherwise fit reasonably well, were suddenly too short. I also had trouble finding affordable tall women's jeans at the time. Currently, there are relatively many more long jeans for women to be found. Even several that are too long for me. Fortunately for several women and girls in my family, as I am currently in the middle of the table compared to many of them.

Nowadays, I need also often a belt to have my jeans fit well. I gained weight, in particular around/at my belly. I often have a hard time to find fitting affordable jeans.

Respectfully, Isabel, I mean that it was because of something I wrote that the discussion started and I was trying to clarify.
'Mostly Spanish' was in reference to the fact that my sister, and most of her friends, are Spanish.
I acknowledge that my English is not so fluent but you do not need to be rude or aggressive.

Oh,please. Let's just have fun.It's not worth crossing lines for a belt ,a colour or whatever.And being ( enthusiastic and joyful) Royal Dishers from all over the world ( am I right?),we would probably say exactly what we mean if we used our first language. I very often feel frustrated because I am not able to put my thoughts into the correct English words.
BTW, dear ladies : I'm not trying to lecture anybody. I haven't been in the most cheerful mood these days and I felt a bit distressed. Perdonadme.
