In this week’s episode of New Girl, Tinfinity, Schmidt and Nick celebrate their 10-year anniversary of living together, and Jess tries to impress a pro-football-player in order to get Nick’s kiss out of her head. While Jess was decked out head-to-toe in J.Crew last week, this week she favors a different preppy brand – Kate Spade. Almost every item of clothing she’s wearing is from this cheery, New-York-based designer. It may not be the best choice for playing football (which she does to try to impress said football-player), but her outfit is cute and fun, and as always, signature Jess.
In my opinion, the most striking piece of her ensemble is the silk black-and-white top by Kate Spade. The skinny stripes are very sophisticated, white the buttons and billowy sleeves add a fun, whimsical element. I especially love the color-blocking on this top, which makes it a very unique piece. It’s almost like an upscale version of a classic striped tee. Jess continues the Kate Spade streak with her cross-body bag and striped espadrille flats. I love how she puts all of these pieces together – it’s an unexpected combination, which keeps it from getting too “matchy-matchy.” The only part of Jess’s outfit that is not from Kate Spade is her orchid-colored cape, which is by designer Corey Lynn Calter. Check out the pieces below for exact matches of Jess’s Kate Spade picks!
