Karlie Kloss Wears Velvet Dress That Will Inspire Your Winter Wardrobe — PHOTO

This is one fabulous lady, on and off of the runway. Karlie Kloss wore a green velvet dress, because she knows how to be festive and sophisticated all at the same time. No ugly Christmas sweaters for her, no way! Why go that route when you could rock a velvet dress, you know? Despite the fact that the fabric dates way back to the era of kings and queens, Kloss manages to make it look completely modern.

Her emerald green dress had an asymmetrical hem line and was paired with a cape jacket and a great pair of metallic heels. So, clearly, this was not an outdated look. It was, however, completely festive and would be great to wear to a Christmas party. So, if you’re still searching for that perfect holiday dress, you may want to let Kloss inspire your ensemble. If you hurry, you can still have it shipped to you in time!

Although, the great thing about velvet is that it’s great for the entire winter season. So, even if you’re not searching for a holiday dress, you can still wear velvet pieces well into 2016. See Kloss’ outfit, and get motivated to shop some of the best velvet pieces around. Some are more festive than others, depending on which way you’re looking to go.
