All hail Queen Letizia of Spain, who once again, has tested the limits of fashion. On Wednesday, the 50-year-old Spanish royal attended engagements in Barcelona related to mental health and care for intellectual disabilities – and she certainly made a statement with her outfit choice.

WOW: Queen Letizia reigns supreme in off-the-shoulder midi dress and heels

Queen Letizia was back at it again with her boundary-pushing looks, stepping out in a pair of striking red leather trousers with a high-waisted fit by Hugo Boss. She paired the crimson garment, coined the 'Sistine Leather Pants,' with a ruby red, round-neck knit also by Boss, called the 'Frankie Cuff Detail Wool Sweater.'

WATCH: Queen Letizia left waiting after protocol failure

Boasting sweet button-down detailing on the sleeves, a radiant tone and a fine knit fabric, the sweater looked perfect when teamed with the retro trousers that featured piped stitching and an ankle-length cut.

The stylish queen wore her brunette hair down loose in her signature silky style with a slightly off-centre parting and opted for a dewy skin glow. A pair of silver drop earrings infused her ensemble with a glint of metallic shine.
