Fashion Fix: Rock Velvet Like Chloe Moretz

chloe moretz velvet dress paris premiere

What to wear to the Christmas party? This is one wardrobe debate we struggle to answer each and every year. And whilst some may opt for the 'less is more' option, we're planning on making like Chloe Moretz by choosing a velvet ensemble, just like the one she wore to the premiere of 'Hugo Cabret 3D' in Paris earlier this month [above]. It's rather festive, no?

But a word of warning: we do not mean go wild with your nana’s curtains and drape yourself in tinsel just because it's Christmas. Instead, opt for something fuss-free yet seductive like this backless fitted number. Ordinarily we would advise to keep accessories to a minimum seeing as velvet is so sumptuous, but seeing as there's merriment in the air, we're planning on blinging it up - just a tad. Check out our top six top buys to nail the look…
