Copy Zooey Deschanel’s “Adorkable” Style

It’s hard to separate Zooey Deschanel from the character she plays on Fox’s new series New Girl—especially when it comes to style. Take Deschanel’s hosting gig this past week on Saturday Night Live. For her monologue she wore a lady-like red dress with a cutesy white heart pattern.

This is called being “adorkable”, or dressing like a 6-year-old girl (the show’s tag line is “Simply Adorkable”). As Deschanel’s character teaches elementary school, and lives with three male roommates, the ultra-girly look suits her. Outside of the show, it’s slightly less appropriate for a 32-year-old.

Still, the vintage-inspired silhouettes of the costumes are beautiful, unique, and look flattering on almost any body type.  Here are a few of Deschanel’s looks from the show that can be easily copied.
