1 Gift, 3 Ways: Lauren Maxwell Makes One Denim Holiday Treat Go The Distance

In our college days, we stumbled to our 8 a.m. class clad in yoga pants and a hoodie (and that's when we were feelin' fancy). Not so for Lauren Maxwell, the 19 year-old blogger behind daily must-read Life Without Tanlines. She puts our school-day style to shame with her sophisticated (but never stuffy) twist on campus classics. Mixing high and low like a pro, Maxwell makes crazy-chic looks out of chain-store staples — and inspires us to step up our campus style (even if our school days are long behind us.)
And, since 'tis the season for giving, we got Maxwell to give us the skinny on her favorite holiday looks. Starting with her fave everyday staple — the denim shirt — Maxwell whipped up three chic looks perfect for you...or that super-stylish, impossible-to-gift friend.
