How to dress and wear vintage style fashion like Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer and New Girl
We are huge fans of Zooey Deschanel here at Yesterday's Girl! She embraces positivity, creativity and above all else she has a fabulous retro style that has us head over heels in love. Here's our top tips to recreate her perfect modern retro fashion sense.
1. Go crazy for polka dots!
It's no secret that Zooey loves polka dots. They feature heavily in vintage fashion throughout the decades and in her on-set wardrobes as well.
It's why we feature them so much in our own collections. You'll go dotty for our pretty polka dot dresses, perfect for helping you recreate this classic retro look.
2. Mix and match
Try mixing and matching different tops with colourful skirts, or pairing them with a vintage style blouse to recreate her fabulous style. Our Josephine Dress below is just the ticket for copying this quirky retro outfit.
3. Bows bows bows!
A lot of Zooey's outfit choices feature bow details which help to add that extra element of cuteness to her wardrobe that we all know and love her for.
For us, the bigger the bow the better! Like our new Emma Dress which makes a statement with this fabulous bow front bodice.
4. Embrace colourful and quirky prints
This is pretty much the staple of Zooey's fabulous on set wardrobe - unique dress designs featuring bold, colourful, retro prints.
Choose cute animal prints, floral dress designs or bold stripes. We have lots of patterned dresses in store to pick and choose from.
4. Cute collars are a must!
Don't be afraid to try clothes with unique collars and necklines. Its an easy way to add some vintage flair to your wardrobe in a modern and up to date way.
The Peter Pan collar and stand shirt collar are firm favourites in Zooey's dress collections, just like our own swivel dress below.
5. Choose shapes that fit and flatter
Finally pick clothes that fit and flatter your shape. The most common dress style Zooey wears is the fit and flare dress, which nips in at the waist and has a fuller skirt which looks fabulous on most body types.
Happy shopping! x
