Street Style: Mastering The Maxi Skirt

Who she is: Lauren
Where we spotted her: Gold Coast
Why we love her: The maxi skirt is one of those pieces we always think we want to rock, but then once we get in front of a mirror with it, we look, well, maxi. We think what we need is a lesson in balance, and this here is a great one – our fair model pairs spring's trendiest bottoms with a fitted tank to look perfectly shapely, and, for lack of a better term, non-maxi. A structural statement bag helps offset flowy lines, and we can't help but applaud the coordinating mani-pedi. After all, it's all about the details, people.
