There are some life changes in store for Jess (Zooey Deschanel) when New Girl returns on Sept. 25, but will they affect her adorkable wardrobe?

In the season premiere, Jess wears this retro printed frock to a meeting with the vice principal at the school where she teaches — spoiler alert: It doesn’t end well — but costume designer Deb McGuire hints that the quirky character’s style will get sexier in future episodes.

“This is a dress that I bought specifically to be part of her wardrobe when Jess was a teacher, so it was quite apt to use for this,” McGuire says of the Coco dress pictured here. “But we have a lot of scenes [coming up] where she wears body conscious, clinging, fabulous sexy dresses.”

Let’s see if she can pull them off without adding a pair of cartoonish plastic teeth.

Are you looking forward to a sexier Jess?
