Oh how we love Zooey Deschanel, let us count the ways. Between her hilariously adorkable antics on New Girl  to the way she rocks bangs better than anyone over the age of five, this retro maven has us smitten. Check out the four key components to getting her feminine throwback style.

1. Fit-and-Flare Dresses


Zooey is well aware of the power of her hourglass shape. She plays up her womanly physique with dresses that are cinched at the waist and stop somewhere above the knee.

2. Bow Belts

When it comes to Zooey's fashion sense, there is no such thing as being too girly. She gives dresses and jeans her signature playful touch with a bow belt.

3. Tights


She's comfortable wearing dresses all season long, but not without a pair of tights. She's been quoted as saying, "I will wear tights even if it's 100 degrees outside. Tights are my safety blanket." Fair enough!

4. Bangs and Baby Blues


No matter the occasion, Zooey tends to stick to the same winning hair and beauty recipe: bangs and dramatic lashes. She dished to Allure magazine, "I'm bangs and eyes. It's who I am. There have been periods when I've grown my bangs out, but I always cut them back, so it's like, why go through the trouble?"
