Many people watch The Mindy Project for its quirky humor and funny plot lines, and while we adore those things, we're also pretty fond of show creator and star Mindy Kaling's style. In real life, Mindy is equally if not more stylish than her namesake character, and in honor of the show's third season premiere this week, we're celebrating 10 of Mindy's cutest style moments.

One of the reasons we love Mindy's style so much? She's not afraid to mix colors and patterns. Here, she had fun with a pleated oxblood dress, black and white polka dot blouse and animal print pumps.

Green's her color! Mindy looked stylish and sexy in a matching green jacquard crop top and pencil skirt paired with black peep toe pumps.

File this one under "must-have outfit," ladies. Mindy proved you can never go wrong with a pink dress in this lovely version. We have two favorite parts of this look: the tulip skirt and those darling pumps.

5) Colorful cutie

This is easily one of our favorite Mindy fashion moments. Why? The color mixing. Mindy's vibrant blue dress paired beautifully with an equally bold green belt and unexpected metallic pumps. Her beauty look is simply amazing too, just saying.

6) Preppy lady

Mindy made preppy look pretty in a colorful colorblocked sweater, jeans and navy peep toe pumps. Simple, yet simply stunning, if you ask us.

7) Lovely leather

If Mindy was going for a sexy, edgy vibe here, she definitely nailed it. The star of The Mindy Project showed up to a network event in an LBD featuring quilted leather at the top and paired the dress with snazzy black booties.

8) Stylish sheath

Let's just call her the queen of color, shall we? Mindy looked sophisticated in a green sheath dress with a black lace pattern. Black accessories and a pop of red pout pulled the look together.

Even when dressed casual, Mindy exudes that cool girl factor. Here, she strolls the streets of NYC in a black leather jacket, ripped denim and colorful sneakers.

10) Pretty in purple

Who can forget Mindy's positively stunning purple gown from the 2013 Emmys? The delicious purple hue melted into Mindy's skin tone and the cool bejeweled neckline added a touch of stylish edge.
