We Love Her Dresses… How To Dress Like Zooey Deschanel

If like us you’ve been a fan of Zooey and her dresses since before her New Girls days, you’ve come to the right place. Not only have we scrolled endlessly through her Instagram feed to compile a top ten list of her best dresses to date, we’ve also put together a shoppable edit of dupes to recreate her style! Below you’ll find designer offerings from Valentino, Oscar De La Renta, Self Portrait, Selkie, and more. All of these closely resemble Zooey’s past looks so you can feel just as stylish and, let’s face it, adorable as she always does.

Update Your Closet With Pretty Puff Sleeve Dresses Like Zooey

If there’s one thing we know about Zooey, it’s that she loves a puff-sleeve silhouette. She has countless printed silhouettes with these voluminous sleeves and we can’t wait to slip into a few of our own and feel just as cute. Firstly, we’re adding the Russy gathered floral-print midi dress by Rotate Birger Christensen and Net Sustain to our carts – before it inevitably sells out! It has a soft blue hue like Zooey’s long-sleeve mini and short puffed sleeves like her other dresses. Therefore,  it’s the epitome of her style. It’s also the ideal spring/summer dress and will see you stylishly through countless plans during the warmer seasons to come.

Meanwhile, we’re taking Zoeey’s lead with floor-length maxi dresses and slipping into The Ritz gown by Selkie every chance we get. With puffed sleeves, a floaty maxi skirt, and floral detailing, it ticks every box. Style this dress with flats for laid-back spring and summer garden parties. Or style it up with heels when the occasion calls for something dressier. This dress will have all eyes on you either way.

Invest In Glitzy LBD's For Your After Dark Plans

If you thought Zooey’s daytime style was something to shout about, wait until you see her red carpet looks. Every gown and mini dress she wears is a work of art and we intend to replicate her style on our after-dark plans from now on! In particular, we’re head over heels for her embellished LBD’s with their subtle 60s-inspired style. With that in mind, we think the tulle-paneled embellished crepe mini by Self Portrait could easily be mistaken for one of Zooey’s own dresses. With a subtly flared skirt with a split, an illusion neckline, and dazzling bodice embellishments, this dress deserves to be styled with equally sparkly heels and a clutch to match.

Additionally, the Ginevra embellished cady mini dress by Rebecca Vallance is a must-have. Boasting glitzy floral embroidery, a square neckline, and puffed sleeves, it doesn’t get more Zooey-inspired than that!
