At the beginning of season 2 of Fox’s New Girl, costume designer Deb McGuire told EW that Jess (Zooey Deschanel) would be dressing sexier, thanks in part to her blossoming relationship with Nick (Jake Johnson).

While we did see a few hemlines rise — and a couple of necklines plunge — McGuire stuck to the mix of vintage finds, pieces from preppy brands like J. Crew and Kate Spade, and over-the-top costumes that are the hallmark of Jess’s adorkable signature style.

Follow along as we count down Jess’ top five style moments from season 2.

The leading lady modeled her girl-next-door style in a mint green dress by Jessica Simpson and a cardigan from Kate Spade, a look McGuire told InStyle.com was a “double scoop of homemade Jess.”
