How Would YOU Wear It? Zooey Deschanel

I think indie darling Zooey Deschanel is adorable, but sometimes she kills it with the opaque tights. No matter what time of day it is, or what the weather is like, Zooey seems to want to cover her limbs.

Now, I personally really like the opaque tights look, but not when it's nearly 100 degrees out! Zooey shouldn't have worn them at this event especially, considering the fact that it was for a premiere for a movie called Surf's Up! Not only does she not look surfer-ish, she looks like she's ready to face Winter.

I would have worn the white shirtdress because it's so current and reminiscent of the Gap Design Edition. I would have definitely ditched the black tights and pumps and would have worn some cute, colorful sandals. How would YOU wear it?

Zooey DesChanel wearing fashionable Pantyhose / Tights is 1 of the biggest reasons why she has become such a Fashion icon. That, the great Legs and being so gosh darn cute! So many Gentlemen and Ladies are so happy to see someone, who is in the media, "bringing classy and sexy back" (no justin, you missed it by light years upon light years). People like Zooey and Katy Perry and Lindsay and Rhianna and Blake Lively and Beyonce etc... want to dress alluring, feminine, and classy as well as showing their sexy Legs (!) as it has now become quite clear that the lazy, white-trash, "i don't care, whatevah, i do what i want", brittany / flip-flops to the White House / "fat pants" / etc years are done. Ask any Gentleman (secretly, as it is a private matter for some) if they like it when Women wear Pantyhose, and most all of them will say, "YES!!" Now, there are of course, 'guy's' (not Men) that have the attitude, "Tro a bag over her head, rip her clothes off and let me do my thing." Without any thought to, well you see where that is going. - But back to the main question; - Ladies like Zooey want to dress well. The bare legged & flip flops look is obviously for younger mtv kids or the, "Only the super obvious can be 'sexy'" 'girls gone wild' type girls, (oh brother!) Anne Margaret and Betty Page and Elvira and Daisy Duke and Marilyn Monroe were sexy and fashionable and always showing their lovely Legs in silky Pantyhose or fashionable Tights. Certainly not looking lazy or following whichever trend Brittany or mtv told them to follow. Now she does wear the opaque tights often and I would rather see her in silky sheer Pantyhose, but other than that- Most all of us Men wish we could meet a girl who dresses so LOVELY!

I think it's awesome the way she wore it - a little more class to a traditional summer outfit. Quirky. White dresses are so versatile.

I'd wear gold or silver grecian looking sandals. I love the idea of a skinny belt with this dress too!

I think I would've kept the white shirt, but worn a pair of light tan or jean bermudas, with some fun wedge heels, and a really long necklace with a coral colored charm. Maybe some small coral earrings.

The sandals would have been my move. Or if she had to have the tights, maybe add the belt (as Danigirl77 suggested). But, really anything Zooey does is great in my eyes! I suspect that the tights are always there to cover some pale skin (just my guess, since I have the same issue).

I tend to forgive Zooey any fashion faux pas because she's just so darned cute. If Britney wore this, I'd be putting her through the ringer, but I kind of like this on Zoo! I think, though, that if I was wearing this, I'd ditch the tights as well and wear some really fun, colorful pumps or sandals. Yellow, maybe, or red. And get a clutch to match, but not be TOO matchy-matchy.
