Whipping out the white linen dress is one of the best parts of summer, and we're always looking for more inspiration. Leave it to Spain's Queen Letizia to give a masterclass in mastering the summer dress. 

The fashionable royal has been making the most of the hot weather by favouring linen dresses in soft shades of white, and always with a face mask to match. 

On a state visit to Ibiza, Letizia and her husband King Felipe looked like something out of a magazine, stepping out in matching white outfits and face masks. The pair are rarely seen without the protective masks these days, whether in formal wear or summer basics.

Given the stunning island is usually a tourist hot spot, their visit sought to show how the locals are coping after the Covid-19 pandemic stalled tourism. The couple made the most of the visit, stopping by the Monographic Museum and Necropolis of 'Puig des Molins'.

Known for her polished and sophisticated style, Letizia looked effortlessly chic in her full-length white maxi dress, featuring statement ruffled sleeves and intricate cut-out detailing. The dress was fitted at the waist and featured striking sheer cut-outs on the bodice and at the hem. 

She paired her elegant ensemble with a pair of cream espadrilles and a matching woven basket bag, accented with brown leather – the ultimate symbol of summer. Aside from her plain face mask, her only accessories were minimal silver jewellery.

Her hair, meanwhile, usually blow dried full and glossy, was pulled into a high ponytail and her make up kept subtle and natural. 

Last week saw another killer outfit from the queen, as she stepped out in a charming white broderie anglais dress, with spaghetti straps, a button-down front and delicate floral cut-outs. 

King Felipe looked similarly stylish, pairing a loose and flowing white shirt with soft grey trousers and neutral runners. Finished with a pair of dark sunglasses, his look alone was making us miss our holidays! Like his wife, the King wore a protective face mask, which is required in Spain.
