Queen Letizia sports wavy hair as she steps out in red floral Maje dress in Madrid

It's the perfect dress to take you from winter to spring

Queen Letizia of Spain wore the midi dress of our dreams as she joined her husband King Felipe at the ARCO Contemporary Art Fair in Madrid on Thursday. The stylish 47-year-old wore a red floral printed satin dress by French brand Maje, teaming the £232 frock with a pair of black patent Manolo Blahnik pumps as she toured the galleries.

It's the perfect dress to wear between seasons as you can team it with long boots while it's still cold and then swap them for an ankle style and bare legs come the warmer weather.

British royals Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are also huge fans of the label. Last summer, bride-to-be Beatrice looked stunning in a blue lace Maje shirt dress for Royal Ascot, while her younger sister Eugenie wore a similar style in yellow for a family day out at the Horse Guards Parade.

That wasn't the only thing we noticed about Queen Letizia's look – her brunette locks were styled in glossy loose waves and she opted for a subtle smokey-eye. She completed her chic daytime ensemble with a slick of nude lip gloss, a pop of bronzer and her Gold & Roses white gold and diamond double dagger earrings.
