If you aren’t already following Caitlin Jaymes on TikTok, you probably should be.

When she is not organising celeb closets, the A-Lister stylist is sharing what essentials you need in your wardrobe and how to rework classic pieces.

With her videos regularly gaining over 10,000 views on TikTok, this fashionista is arguably become of the app’s biggest experts on everything style related.

Though she is usually telling you what to add to your wardrobe, Caitlin recently went viral for sharing her thoughts on the summer staple: the denim shorts.

Despite most of us having a pair at home, you might want to rethink this.

According to the expert, these shorts can actually make you look dated and cheap.

“If you still have any of your micro jean shorts, especially the ones that are super distressed, this is your sign to upgrade,” she pointedly told fans.

In a now viral-video, the stylist revealed that she prefers longer shorts as these are more ‘versatile’ and look effortlessly chic.

Rather than opting for a skin-tight look, the fashion forward influencer will opt for an A-Line fit.

She also urged fans to look for linen shorts, saying that they were perfect for ‘dressing up’ and ‘down’.

If you still can’t let go of your Daisy Dukes just yet, Caitlin did have some words of wisdom on how to style them.

“I do like the look of a jean short, I just think it needs to be styled a little bit differently and of course, we are not doing something that is super micro,” she explained.

The TikTok star added: “If you want to do [jean shorts and] distressing, just do a little bit of a frayed hem…I also like to style them with more classic pieces, like a cashmere sweater [and} some ballet flats.”

While the stylist was convinced about getting rid of the cult summer staple, others revealed that they’d hated denim shorts even when they were trendy.

One joked: “Never had that style because I like my rear end not to be showing.”

Another added: “Got rid of those a long time ago. But then had high wasted ones. Then realized as I got to be 27 why am I still wearing these: I’m not 18 anymore lol.”

To which, the influencer replied: “Totallyyyy like I don’t need my butt out…and [they are] so uncomfortable to sit in.”

Others weren’t convinced with a third arguing: “Jean shorts are great as long as it looks classy (what you showed) not trashy and cheap.”

A fourth then complained: “The longer ones make me look even shorter.”

Platform flip flops

Again a popular choice among fashionistas in the 90s, these heels have made a comeback with designers such as Balenciaga trying their luck with their own styles.

Cargo pants

Once worn by the stars of All Saints, cargo pants became a popular trend for teens in the 90s. But they’ve now had a fashion overhaul, with stars such as Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber all putting their own spin on the trend.

Jeans and a nice top

It was the phrase that defined fashion for a decade, and now famous faces such as Sofia Richie are sporting the reinvented trend – pairing their own denims with a more sophisticated top. But are you willing to dig your jeans and nice tops out of the wardrobe for a second time?
