Q. I recently bought a pair of unlined white linen pants that have a sash belt. I wanted to pair them with a "deep sea aqua" sleeveless fitted shirt and tuck it into the pants to show off the belt. Is it acceptable to tuck a dark colored shirt into unlined white linen pants? Or should you go with a lighter color shirt so that it cannot be seen through the pants?
A. Aqua and white are a gorgeous combination, however, if your shirt is showing through your pants, you should definitely go with a lighter color. Unlined white linen pants can be tricky, since many colors can show through. Also, be sure to wear nude colored underwear to avoid any show-through (white underwear is a big no-no!)
