Celebs are starting to shed their layers.

Warm weather is a comin', which means it's time to prep your closets for the fast-approaching, upcoming season. The easiest place to start? In the dress department. Who better than Karlie Kloss to get the ball rolling.

There's a lot to consider here: for starters, she's wearing a wrap dress. The wrap dress was made popular by designer Diane Von Furstenberg in the '70s. It was initially designed with mature, working women in mind, but that's no longer the (full) case. Paired with white sneakers, Karlie has opened a new realm of casual, flirty possibility that deserves a home in your wardrobe.

Add a similar dress to your closet and you're covered for all the season has to bring.
