When it comes to cold-weather dressing, it's no surprise to see a flurry of black dresses, gray sweaters, and neutral wool coats. But just because it's gloomy outside, doesn't mean your outfit has to be. Queen Letizia's green silk dress is the striking pop of color your winter wardrobe is lacking, as well as the perfect layering piece to make a statement this season.
Queen Letizia was photographed while attending an event at the Hotel Auditórium in Madrid, Spain on Thurs. The Spanish monarch wore a green silk midi dress by Sandro featuring a playful print, a pleated skirt, and a subtly plunging neckline. She accessorized with a simple pair of pointed black pumps by Prada, a matching Nina Ricci clutch, and dangling earrings.
As for hair, Letizia sported a glossy blowout, drawing attention to her rich brown color with golden-toned highlights. Opting for elevated, daytime glam, the Queen donned bronzy skin, smoky brown eyeshadow, and a neutral pink lip.
Although she's royalty, it seems that even the Queen can't resist a good sale. The paisley-print midi dress usually retails for over $500, but Bloomingdale's has dropped the price by 30 percent. If you're looking to embody queen-worthy style without a royally high price tag, you're going to want to shop this piece ASAP.
Queen Letizia knows just how to find pieces that are as reasonably priced as they are sophisticatedly stylish. In fact, she's been known to frequent affordable brands like ASOS, Mango, and Steve Madden, pairing budget-conscious pieces with high-end designer items.
A silky dress in a lively color may not seem like a winter necessity, but when styled accordingly, it can upgrade even your most over-worn staples. Throw on a black wool coat, sheer tights, and patent leather pumps for an exciting take on work attire. If you're looking to make a statement at your next cocktail event, try wearing a silky green midi underneath a cozy faux fur, or even a leather jacket for an edgier look.
