Lea Michele just wore the prettiest winter floral in the season's biggest trend: velvet. The Glee actor was the woman of the hour during An Evening With Lea Michele at the Grammy Museum on Tues. And if you were wondering how to wear post-summer botanical prints, Lea Michele's pink velvet dress is the way.

The actor took the stage of the Clive Davis Theater to sing for an audience and chat with Grammy Museum Artistic Director Scott Goldman. The Emmy winner's vocal performance aside, her flowy frock was the star of the show.

Michele wore a full-length ruffled chiffon dress by Saloni. The winter-ready number features half sleeves, a plunging neckline, and its black velvet floral print offers the most perfect contrast against the salmon-colored chiffon.

The dress gathers at the waist, creating a form-fitting shape, and descends into a flouncy skirt. Its dipped hem helped to show off the actor's simple black sandal heels. She wore her hair down in her usual loose, voluminous curls and accessorized only with a dainty necklace. The overall look was a perfect way to make one of your favorite warm-weather trends winter-appropriate. While you might think that florals and pinks scream summertime, velvet makes it a perfect pick for cold weather.

Get The Look

Velvet has been all the rage lately, mostly showing up in bags, blazers, and dresses. Blake Lively revived the craze earlier in the fall when she sported head-to-toe velvet in a two-toned three-piece set during her legendary month-long suit parade. Gone are the days when velvet was just a tracksuit trend; now it's common for sleek turtlenecks, elegant peacoats, and sweeping maxi skirts. Prabal Gurung, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Jeremy Scott, and so many more have worked the cozy fabric into their Fall/Winter 2018 collections.

And then there's floral — the print that Naomi Watts, Julianne Hough, and Kendall Jenner have all proven you can wear past summer. In fact, there's hardly a better look for a winter wedding than a full-length floral dress. The key to wearing flowery prints in cold temps is to opt for florals in dark hues. Better yet, find yourself a dress that incorporates a flowery print with the coziest, wintery textures, like Michele's.
