Forget ditching the black as soon as springtime hits. Based on what we saw at C'N'C Costume National, black could be lingering around a bit longer than you think. While black and grey are not the first hues you think about for spring/summer, the pieces here still looked fresh and light, thanks to the presence of ivory, white and flashes of pink. Not to mention the plethora of sheer fabric and the layering of floaty tops and tunics over leggings - funnily enough, you could actually picture these looks making it through a warm day.

Designer Ennio Capasa referenced X-ray specs for this collection, and indeed with some of these outfits you felt like you were being a bit creepy. However, I do love the idea of a basic white tee under a sheer black blouse or tunic (see below). While most of us might not be brave enough to try some of the other peek-a-boo looks, this is definitely one worth investigating further...
