It’s been more than two years since New Girl officially went off the air but we continue to be inspired by Jessica Day, her feisty spirit, and her iconic wardrobe.

There’s truly no other character on TV who has embraced the feminine, vintage-inspired style that Jessica Day rocked throughout the six seasons of New Girl. She continues to be one of our favorite fashion inspirations with her many striped sweaters and her countless high-waisted shorts.

So, how exactly can you add a little Jess Day into your wardrobe? Check out her 10 top outfits below as well as where to get look-a-like items that won’t break the bank.
