Street Style: Make A Maxi Work For Fall

melanie
Who she is: Melanie
Where we spotted her: In River North.
Why we love her: Melanie's got comfy-chic down to a science. She's taking it easy in a casual maxi skirt (note that it's wisely not dragging on the ground!) and an easy button-down-plus-blazer pairing. But the key to keeping things stylish instead of slouchy is in the details. Her bold red lip, smart hat, and super-cool shades in a great shape round out her entire look. Can we please steal her hair products, btw? Now, tell us, how do you play it cool in your maxis?
