Zooey Deschanel's Black Tights & Party Dress Combo Is A Winter "Must" — PHOTOS

A new Hollywood mom has made a triumphant return to the red carpet and her signature, super cute style signatures remain in tact! Actress Zooey Deschanel donned a girlish Kate Spade dress, which she paired with opaque black tights, adorable kitten heels, and a black belt. Those are her style hallmarks as much as her heavy bangs are.

Deschanel is the queen of feminine dresses with quirky touches and her satin, color-blocked dress hit on all her signatures.

The New Girl star welcomed her daughter, named Elise Otter, this past summer and she has quickly returned to her pre-pregnancy style. There is one thing we can pretty much count on as Elsie grows up and that's the fact that she will be one of the best-dressed tots in all of Hollywood. I expect Deschanel to wrap her baby girl in all sorts cute dress and shoes that look like miniature versions of pieces we'd find in her own closet.

Let's have a look at the actress, who reigned supreme as an "It Girl," in her latest adorable dress.

If you are on the fence about rocking opaque tights, allow Deschanel to make a case for purchasing a pair and wearing 'em with your holiday party frocks as the temperatures dip.

The belt and the tights pulled her entire look together.

The dress was so glam due to the shiny fabric and the volume in the multi-hued skirt. The matte tights added contrast.

Deschanel was clearly comfortable in this outfit. Her confidence was merely another accessory.

The Kate Spade dress was pretty and girlish without being too cutesy. Don't get me wrong. It was way cute. But it wasn't too cute.

Deschanel's bangs have remained a staple of her look.

Because she is unrecognizable without them, as this 2013 Met Gala photo proved.

Deschanel sometimes goes bare-legged but this dress could totally be "winterized" with a pair of black tights. It would be just as amazing with tights. Notice that she resorted to another of her signature moves — the black belt.

She is all about the black tights with short hems.

She rocks the schoolgirl look better than anyone else.

See how transformative a simple pair of black tights can be during any season? They are a godsend in winter when you still want to wear dresses but need to layer for warmth and can't do bare legs.

This is my favorite of her super feminine LBDs. Polka dots are always cute.
