Style Rx: Is It Possible Zooey Deschanel Is Actually Stuck In These Tights and Can't Get Out?

Who: Zooey Deschanel

Where: At the Fox upfronts in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: We grow increasingly concerned that she is stuck in the same pair of black tights and cannot remove them. We’re all for having a “thing,” but when that “thing” makes us sweaty and uncomfortable by association, we become a little less supportive.

Prognosis: Zooey, we’ve noticed you’re experimenting with your bangs lately, and that’s super. We recommend riding that experimental wave and trying a few A-line skirt outfits — sans tights. No major changes to your wardrobe are needed; just one quick check of before heading out the door would keep your red-carpet style fun, feminine and yet climate-appropriate.

I want to see her in something sexy for once. I’m tired of this froo-froo look she’s always rocking that makes her look so wide.

I love Zooey’s style, but I do agree. She needs to drop the tights. I feel like often her outfits are great but are ruined by opaque black tights.

Love her or hate her for her style, she won’t care. She’ll just continue to be a successful recording artist, actress, style icon, and make it look so effortless. That’s really her “thing” and what makes her so agreeable, not her tights.

She was in NYC, where it’s really not that warm yet, so I don’t have a problem with the tights. Now, if she still wears them in July….

I love her but can’t stand her or her sister singing! Love her as an actress but the singing needs to go away. She has very heavy legs so I think she tries to cover it with the black tights. Otherwise I love her and would want to see more of her in films!

I saw She and Him in concert at Governors Island a few years back on the 4th of July. It was an insanely hot and humid day and she still wore black tights. Good luck getting her to let them go!

You’d dress like that too, if you had her lumberjack thighs!

I love wearing tights but once the temperature hits the 70’s it becomes too hot for them. Retire them for the summer!

Are you saying she should vary the color or go barelegged? Here she’s wearing black, and black tights are the way to go. Ladies, bare legs are great for shorts or a swimsuit, but always a bad idea in a skirt or a dress. Don’t know why — it just is. Climate has nothing to do with it.

How can you tell she has heavy legs? she looks quite petite to me.
