Though many 20-year-olds spend their days dressed in ironic T-shirts and distressed denim, Emma Roberts is generally outfitted in designer duds and party dresses. But she admits that she does have a bit of an inner slob.

“I think when you’re young it’s all about being comfortable,” she told PEOPLE recently at the Rebecca Taylor boutique opening in Los Angeles. “When I’m older, I’m probably going to have to look much more put together. At least that’s what I imagine.”

The fashionista — also a face of Neutrogena — said that age is an excuse to dress down a bit. “I like to be a little more disheveled — I like throwing on a motorcycle jacket with a gown because I’m young, and I can,” she shared. “When you’re young it’s much more fun to mix and match, do that kind of hobo-chic look.”

But just as age often defines hair color and hem length, it’ll someday redefine Roberts’s style. She joked, “I don’t think I’ll be 50 rocking hobo chic.” Tell us: Has your style changed with age?
