Zooey Deschanel is too old to wear Daisy Dukes.
The 34-year-old actress shuns tight cutoff jean shorts - named after the 'Dukes of Hazzard' character who popularized the look - because she believes they don't look graceful at her age.
She told Lucky magazine: "Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that right now."
The 'New Girl' star is famed for sporting vintage wear, but protests there's nothing wrong with having a particular style and sticking with it.
She added: "The funny thing is, people think I never break out of this one box. I like what I like.
"It has nothing to do with trends or being a slave to fashion. Sometimes things will be in style and they're classic and look great, and sometimes ... I think it's important to recognize when fashion has gone to a place that isn't cute."
Justifying her view, she added some of the most iconic beauties in modern history also have a certain style which they stuck to.
She said: "If you look at anyone with great style - Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn - they have certain silhouettes that they don't really stray from.
"It's not like Audrey Hepburn was running around in a bunch of giant shoulder-padded-dresses. I have narrow shoulders and a small rib cage, so some things just swallow me up and make me look frumpy."
