Reese Witherspoon avoids fashions her daughter would wear

The actress loves watching her daughter develop her own sense of style.

Actress Reese Witherspoon has started to steer clear of wearing clothes better suited for her teenage daughter now she's 40.

The Legally Blonde beauty, who celebrated the age milestone in March (16), used to allow her 16-year-old girl, Ava, to dive into her closet whenever she wanted, but now she's determined to be a little more cautious about the clothes she shares with the teen.

"I have a rule that if my teenage daughter is wearing it, I'm not supposed to be wearing it," she told PeopleStyle. "Ava and I can go through an entire magazine and be like, 'That's for you, and that's for me!'"

"Like, some women love to wear cut-off shorts and look really good in them, but I like a polished, tailored short," she continued. "I feel like I am too old to be wearing cut- offs at this point."

Another style the Draper James entrepreneur admits she has always struggled to pull off is the trendy 'boho' look that stars like Megan Fox, Olivia Wilde, and Kate Hudson often sport, but the Wild star has started to experiment with the silhouette.

"I like a high-rise short," she mused. "They remind me of the '60s. I've put inspiration photos on my Instagram of girls in the '60s walking around in their high-waisted shorts. I think they are so cute."

Meanwhile, the actress is enjoying watching Ava, her daughter with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, develop her own personal style, and Reese is full of approval for the hippie-chic outfits the teen and her pals modelled at the Coachella music festival in California last month (Apr16).

"They looked so cute!" the proud mum gushed. "It's great to see them having so much fun with fashion. They will always remember these times. They wear big sunglasses and things they wouldn't normally wear, and it's great to see them expressing themselves.

"I remember growing up in Nashville, we used to go to country concerts in the summer and it was so fun to dress up for festivals. It's a rite of passage for sure."
