ASK AMANDA ... White on white

"What do you think about white on white?" - Lacey Moncla

Today at Ask Amanda we talk one of summer's freshest combos — white on white. So chic, so perfect for this hot Louisiana summer.

Dearest Lacey,

I love white on white. It is perhaps the one matchy matched up color combo I like other than black on black (if they made something darker I would wear it).

When I got this question my first thought was the effortlessly cool Jeffery McCullough at Big Easel 2014 (the art guru and man of design chaired the event, which just happens to be happening Saturday in River Ranch Town Square). It was about a thousand degrees and, yet, Jeffery looked cool as a cucumber.

White on white is the way a southern girl does hot afternoons. Jeffery did his look with white Levi's from his fav spot in Atlanta — Sig Mashburn's shop — with a cool button down and sleeves rolled up. I love his simple Tretorns and shades.

On Lacey, these linen pants are a timeless piece for every southern gal's wardrobe and can go from dressy to super casual. She's wearing a look she snagged at Vanessa V. with a few subtle pops of color.

White on white is also a great combo when doing the new high-waisted skirt and crop top look. It's fresh, the perfect backdrop for bold jewelry and sure to keep you chill even under pressure.
