Stripes are forever. Am I right? It goes without saying that they’re a closet staple for many of us. I can’t count how many times I’ve reached for a simple striped tee when I want something easy and casual to wear. And nobody does stripes better than Mark D. Sikes and his line, MDS Stripes. Born from his love of blue and white stripes, each piece celebrates the classic stripe and all of its variety. Last year I bought this blue and white maxi skirt from the line and this season, I went with this bright and bold version.
Back when we were visiting Amelia Island, I brought this playful piece along with me. Something about the simplicity of the beach with the bright colors of the skirt really had me excited. Instead of dressing it up with a wrap top or silk cami, I kept the look effortless with a white tee. Sometimes I forget how great something as simple as a white tee can be when paired with the right things.
This maxi skirt also comes in a maxi dress version here and a mini dress version here. And if you’re wanting more stripes in your life (because who doesn’t?!), this dress, this dress and this top are all amazing (and perfect for the upcoming summer months!).
