"New Girl" style by MyEveryzine
Anyone who watches “New Girl” knows that Zooey Deschanel is utterly adorkable— that eager smile, those startling doe-like eyes, her quirky personality and of course her classy, cute, thrift-shop-chic wardrobe!  She won over her male roommates despite her random bursts of song and well-intended meddling into their love lives.  But you don’t need a Hollywood stylist to get the look. All you need are a couple of easy fashion tips and the happy-go-lucky mindset of Jess.

Know Your Fashion Math
Bold color + Softer Pattern = Presh.  Zooey is all about color: tangerine orange, navy blue, kelly green, eggplant purple. But too much color would have her looking like the elementary students her character is supposed to be teaching!  Pair a top or bottom in a bright hue with a classic pattern like stripes.  More adventurous patterns (like paisley) should be the star of your outfit, giving a bold color a small part such as a belt or a pair of tights.

Witty Tee + Flowy Skirt = Perfect I’m-Cute-But-Not-Trying-Too-Hard Outfit.  When trying to look effortlessly impressive, try this combo. Or ditch the skirt and shimmy into your favorite pair of jeans if you still want that adorkable look for a night of “Dirty Dancing” and popcorn with the gang.  Threadless.com has a wide array shirts that will do the trick (We love this delightfully punny T-shirt!

Complementary Colors a la "New Girl"


Keep it Classy with a Mini-Dress
There are so many ways a mini-dress can go wrong. Having fabric hugging every last curve or too much skin showing is the opposte of Jess’s signature adorkable style. The classy mini-dress is a rarity, but if you know what you’re looking for, finding one (or two, or three) can be a cinch.  Because of the short hem, you want to stay fairly covered up on top.  Look for dresses with sleeves or with a higher neckline.  Stay away from mini-dresses where the bottom portion feels like a pencil skirt.  A-line hems are always a safe bet, and the retro feel they give off is really swell 😉

If you find darling mini-dresses that aren’t quite as conservative as you’d hoped, you can easily class them up. Cardigans are must— keep your closet stocked with them, and buy them simple and solid-colored (go bold).  For a formal occasion, you can’t go wrong with a fitted button-up blazer.  A pair of black tights adds a little more coverage and takes a warm-weather dress into appropriate holiday attire.  Also, ditch the heels; ballet flats in angelic hues like periwinkle or even gold give you instant girl-next-door appeal.  This elegant mini would look oh-so Zooey with a bright cardigan.

A New Girl Christmas


Go Tops-y Turvy
Every girl’s closet could benefit from three essential tops: the button-up, the ruffle  and the long-sleeved. The button-up is brilliant because of its versatility: buy a printed one, a pastel one, and a neutral one, and you’re covered for every occasion, provided you have a variety of bottoms.  In blacks, whites, beiges, and baby pinks, the ruffle top is perfect for school with high-waisted shorts, and perfect for winning over America with a polka dot skirt (as Zooey proved when she rocked the outfit on New Girl’s pilot episode).  Long-sleeved tops in colors that pop are so much fun tucked into flirty skirts.

Simplicity = Key
Leave the clunky bangles, glittery eyeshadow, and giant designer totes at home.  Zooey works minimal make-up and accessories and so should you!  Transport your junk from place to place with a classic black cross-body bag (How cute is this vintage one? )
 Avoid overwhelming jewelry and make-up, so that nothing overshadows the natural sweetheart within.  If you can’t resist the urge to accessorize, add an over-sized bow   or a thick headband. When Zooey’s got one in her raven locks, she looks just like Blair Waldorf gone good!  Who wouldn’t want to capture that perfect blend of good girl and glam?

"New Girl" cast starring Zooey Deschanel

“New Girl” (FOX), Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Who’s the girl who stole our hearts and made us proud to be dorks? It’s Jess! Well, actually it’s Zooey Deschanel and her character Jess in the smash hit “New Girl.” This show is dedicated to every girl who has had a tough break up. This show is dedicated to all the girls who can’t help it if they like “Lord of the Rings” or spontaneously break out into song! That’s right, ladies, there’s finally a show for you!
And it all starts with a boy. After Jess finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, she hits Craigslist to find a beautifully described, “sun-soaked” apartment. To her surprise, all three of her roommates are guys! She doesn’t really mind, the apartment is gorgeous, and since the guys find out Jess’s friends are gorgeous models (including her BFF, Cece, played by Hannah Simone), she gets the spot as the new roomie.
Watching Jess cope with her lost love by endlessly watching “Dirty Dancing,” sobbing each time she heard “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” was hilarious—ummm, mostly because I know I’ve done the same thing, except with “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” Zooey’s male counterparts quickly become lovable with Coach, an intense personal trainer who needs serious help communicating with women (Don’t get too attached to Damon Wayans, Jr., like I did, he’s just guest starring :/), Schmidt (Max Greenfield)—a womanizer and major contributor to the apartment-wide Douchebag Jar and Nick (Jake Johnson) a heartbroken bartender still coping with his breakup.
It was fun to see the Bro Code soften up and let Jess in to help her with her dating life. Prepare to laugh (even when you realize you’re laughing at yourself) and swoon over these bros-turned-gentlemen. Although don’t expect too much brotherly love— if “New Girl” follows the good old formula of television/drama/life, expect one (or more) of the roomies falling for the quirky, cute Jess with looks worthy of a Rimmel spokesmodel (Oh, wait…). I’m thinking it’ll be Schmidt. Either way, it looks like so far “New Girl” earned the tilte New Fave Show!

So tell ME: What is your go-to chick flick when you’re down?
