Black for Spring: Peter Pilotto Mixed Prints and Sporty Details

While I love rocking all black looks in the spring and summer, on hot days, it is usually best to keep black as an accent color.  Pops of white, bright orange, and blues combine with black and mixed prints for a bold casual spring/summer look.

Skirt:  Peter Pilotto for Target (Available here)

This look combines the athletic, mesh, floral, and graphic black and white trends all in one look!  The skirt and top are perfect together without the cardigan, but the mesh cardigan is a great lightweight topper for chilly air conditioning and breezy spring days.

I finished the look with black gladiator sandals and a straw clutch to help anchor the colorful look.  This outfit has a LOT going on, so the black accessories and cardigan really help keep the bold look more wearable.

Clutch:  Target (old)

Mixed bangles and bead bracelets add a fun touch without being overpowering.

Bracelets:  The Limited, Express, Target, eBay, LOFT
