The New Girl on FOX is one of my favorite new shows, in large part due to the offbeat character “Jess,” played to perfection by actress Zooey Deschanel.

A single girl living with three chronically juvenile men is hilarious as a setting. And, the cast is outstanding. But, for me, Deschanel’s character is by far the most entertaining.

Part of the appeal is Jess’s quirky fashion sense. Although Deschanel is model-gorgeous with impossibly huge, blue eyes, her character’s clothing choices exude an approachability that’s just so appealing!

Her signature? Fun, free-spirited dresses that combine style and sass (with a dash of 50’s retro!) for a trademark “Jess” look.

Above are some examples of ways that you can add Jess’s style to your own wardrobe this summer. Other great sundresses can be found at Forever 21 and Nordstrom.
