"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," the New Girl star, 34, says, and then adds, "I think it's important to recognize when fashion has gone to a place that isn't cute."

What is cute, according to the She and Him singer, is knowing how to dress for your body. "If you look at anyone with great style -- Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn -- they have certain silhouettes that they don't really stray from," she says. "It's not like Audrey Hepburn was running around in a bunch of giant shoulder-padded-dresses."

Deschanel relies on fashion as a method of self-expression. "Fashion is a way of communicating. You're saying, 'Hi world! How are you? This is me today. Take me or leave me!"

While she usually greets the world in classic styles like the fit-and-flare dress, there is one trend to she'll stay far away from: "Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that right now."
