New Year's Eve style inspired by 'New Girl'

Still searching for a New Year’s Eve outfit? PopStyle is here to help! From a black tie affair to a night on the couch, TV costume designers show you how to dress for any occasion. 

If this lace dress Jess wore to a model party looks a lot sexier than the adorakable clothes she usually wears, that’s because it came straight from actress Zooey Deschanel’s closet — and it’s on sale! 

“It was a moment where Jess needed to be really dressy, and the dress was more sophisticated,” explained costume designer Debra McGuire of choosing Erin Fetherston “Edith” dress ($206.25 at theoutnet.com). “We had a bunch of dresses on a rack, but when Zooey put that on we said, ‘That’s perfect!'”

Don’t forget to inject some color, McGuire points out. “The script called for an ’80s look, so we used the cobalt shoes and vintage necklace.” Get your little black dress party ready with an enamel bib necklace, platform heels and a chain strap bag.
