The New Girl Style

Who’s that girl? Who’s that girl? It’s Jess! Have you seen Fox’s new sitcom The New Girl? If not, you’re definitely missing out. The show stars Zooey Deschanel as incredibly nerdy and socially awkward schoolteacher Jess. In the show, her long-term boyfriend Spencer (or the Wizard) cheats on her and that leaves Jess finding a new place to live. She moves in with three boys she found through Craig’s List and hilarity ensues.

Fake hillbilly teeth and awful basketball moves don’t have America fooled though. It’s hard to look at Jess and think of her as the goofball the show makes her out to be. Sure Zooey might have a goofy personality. But she’s also a great actor, musician, and fashion icon. Her cute, quirky style is to die for and men certainly don’t mind looking at her. Zooey just has that charm and I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say most girls want to be her, even dorky Jess would do.

In the most recent episode, she escorts her roommate Nick to a wedding to make his ex-girlfriend jealous. I don’t want to spoil it, but the episode ends in a pretty extreme version of the chicken dance. Jess looked amazing at the wedding.

The Christina Shoulder Bag looks very elegant, perfect for a date night. But like Jess’ bag, it could be very versatile and used more casually as well. This bag comes in the color shown and also black.

    I watched this week and Jess had a great handbag that she pulled all kinds of things out of — pirate hats and feeling sticks, etc. Any idea where it came from?

    I’m trying to track down the green handbag/tote too. I’ve never seen a bag quite like it, and I’d love to have one. Where could I find it or something even remotely close to it?

    Libby and Christie,

    I know the bag you’re looking for- it’s sort of olive green and she wears it into the pawn shop when she tries to steal the tv! It really is a unique look. I thought this bag was kind of similar in the sense that it had the cross body strap as well as the two rounded straps and was also a bulkier sort of bag.
    This is the other one that stuck out to me: http://www.handbagheaven.com/kimberly-denim-bag.html

    If it’s the color that you like, then you can search green handbags on our site. I’ll keep a lookout to see if I find anything else similar. Let me know if there are any more styles you’re on the lookout for as you continue to watch the show! :)

    Emmy- Is that the same bag you were thinking of also? I only caught a short glimpse of it in the most recent episode, but it appeared to be that one.
