Zooey Deschanel Designs Tommy Hilfiger Capsule Collection

We knew Zooey Deschanel was a cute dresser, but we had no idea she actually had fashion design skills.

But as it turns out, the "New Girl" actress and twee star of every hipster boy's dreams is trying her hand at designing with a capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger. The small collection, consisting of 16 "flirty dresses" (natch), will retail at Macy's starting April 14.

Why Tommy? We had no idea the two were close pals, although she did wear Tommy Hilfiger to the 2013 Met Gala. But the preppy Americana-inspired designer tells WWD that Zooey fits his brand's aesthetic perfectly. "She is the epitome of [a Tommy girl] -- all-American, youthful, fun and funny, yet she has a sophistication and worldliness to her that's quite endearing."

The dresses do sound oh so Zooey -- "Sixties-inspired short dresses" with "a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics," Tommy told WWD. Flared hemlines, retro shapes and bright contrasting colors? Yeah, we could see Zooey and her alter ego Jess Day wearing these.

As for the rest of us, we'll get to decide come spring. The dresses run from $98 to $199 and will be available in 200 Macy' stores. Think you'll buy one?
