When it comes to quirky sophisticates, Zooey Deschanel has got to be number one on our list. We love her in New Girl
, we loved her in (500) Days of Summer
and we just adore her as part of musical duo She & Him.
In fact, we’re such big fans that we gave Zooey a shout out here on the blog just a few weeks ago when we wrote about Jewellery for Nature Lovers
Ms Deschanel rose to fame in the early 2000s thanks to break out hollywood roles in films including Almost Famous, Elf and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In 2011 she came to our TV screens as the much-loved Jessica Day in New Girl. The role was created just for Zooey, which means that the character shares her signature look. Great news for us: we love to see where her quirky style choices take her each episode!
What can we say? There’s just something about Zooey’s kooky style that makes us get excited. She manages to walk the fine line between girly and wacky while still always looking glamorous. Want to be able to do the same? Here’s how we think she does it…
The reason Zooey Deschanel gets it so consistently right is because she knows what suits her. She’s often pictured wearing clothing from a limited colour palette including black, white, silver, red and blue. Much of her clothing and jewellery is vintage themed, and she’s a big fan of prints.
These preferences cross over into her jewellery choices too. We particularly admire her taste for nature themed jewellery: she’s often seen wearing floral and animal styled pieces that make us want to squee in delight! Oh… and of course, no vintage girly jewellery box would be complete without a classic string of pearls and a heavy sprinkling of sparkly bows!
If Zooey was to stop by our contemporary jewellery shop on High Petergate, York, we think she’d find plenty to draw her eye. Our Amanda Colman collection
might be just her thing… and we don’t think she’d be able to pass by our Rachel Elliot Glass hares
without a smile!
