What a cool idea! Chiffon over a shorter skirt for a breezy maxi-skirt look. The cropped tops are also interesting, but I don't think I'll ever be able to show my belly that way. The hat goes really well, too, but I don't see myself wearing very wide-brimmed hats. I like the jean jacket--denim and chiffon are an unexpected combination.
floral maxi...very cute. I really need to spend some time looking for the perfect fitting tee...
What makes this outfit show formal balance is that the outfit has a mirror image of both sides. The elements of design that are present in this picture that help create balnce is that at the top part of her shirt, there are two flaps that come down that are identical and mirror each other. Also the skirt is the same all around.
