Is there anything more refreshing than zesty Citrus fruit in the hot summer months? Taking inspiration from oranges, lemons, limes, and even grapefruits, this season’s hottest trends are definitely good enough to eat. Stylish citrus shades are packing a punch when it comes to hot summer fashion, and everything from posh pool floats to embroidered espadrilles are full of zing. Here is a round up of our fave fruity finds sure to liven up your 2018 summer.
Grapefruit Lemonade Vibes
Mixing shades of yellow and peach is playful and a little unexpected. This lightweight silk Off The Shoulder dress is the perfect shade of peachy sorbet and paired with the electric lemon trade beads has us thirsty for a belini at a chic cabana soiree!

But first, Brunch! Soludos has done it again with these clever little Mimosa Platform Smoking Slippers. These are the perfect kicks to catch some major Sunday feels sipping fresh bubbly citrus.
Bright like the sun
Who doesn’t want brighter, glowing skin? Sun-kissed skin looks amazing in pictures, but the summer months can do some major damage to your money- maker if you do not use high quality products (for more beauty tips, reads C’s latest blog post). Packed with vitamin C, this Halo C-Change brightening serum (under $20) not only smells like fresh oranges, but leaves your skin feeling brighter and clearer.
This seasons hottest hue
If you haven’t jumped on the Yellow train by now, then you are “so last season”. From clutches to statement necklaces, this sunny hue is popping up everywhere and we can’t get enough! Yellow can be a tricky face color, so take some time to find a shade that works with your skin tone. This Gingham Crop top is a Beckett best seller, and the soft pastel yellow is easy to wear and looks fab with a high waisted bottoms.

Is it ever too early to start planning outfits for the Summer? Definitely not. Here are a few fun trends you should jump on before summer begins!
Stripes are a trend that have stood their ground throughout the years, but this Summer the print is not your standard affair that you may visualize the French floating around in. Choose a striped number that stands out and adds a punch to your every day ensembles! Think flowey pants with a large, blocked stripe print, or a statement silk scarf that balances feminine and modern which you can use to add some excitement to a neutral look.
Another style tip to try out this summer is more daring: It’s time to pull out those statement, frilled shirts. Semi-over-the-top frills and detailing set to neutral tones is the way to go. Pair ruffled sleeves on a camel colored shirt with loose ripped jeans and some woven wedges, and you are ready for that rooftop dinner with friends. Or, try a red gingham wrap top paired with distressed denim skinny jeans and laced up white espadrilles. This statement is sure to rack in the compliments, as it is both daring and exciting, but also tastefully casual!
Another simple way to up your Summer style game is to invest in some brightly colored or strong statement jewelry. Think bright neon yellow tassel earrings or a knotted necklace along with a simple pair of linen white pants and a silk white top. The look is effortlessly chic but also has that fun pop that vamps up the neutral tones from last summer to an updated, 2018 vibe. A great piece of jewelry takes a classic outfit and makes it just unique enough that it will feel personalized to your mood.
A final piece of style advice I can give for this summer is to embrace the natural beauty of your body. Emphasize your back structure with loose fitted tops and wear pants that flow softly on your body. With the many women’s marches occurring in recent months, there has been an added emphasis in fashion on the natural beauty of a woman’s body.
Think soft, silk blazers buttoned with a simple black tube top underneath or delicate fabrics that flow over the skin. It is time for clothes to beautifully coexist with the female body! When you aren’t wearing those statement pieces, try to wear clothing that embraces the natural curves of the body and highlight those particularly female qualities that are so special.
It is hot. No we mean it. It is like breast stroking through molasses out there. Every time we walk outside it becomes a physical and emotional struggle of what will break first: body or spirit. Yes that was totally stolen from Bane in Batman. He won’t mind.
Does anyone out there want to spend a million dollars on luxurious clothing they are going to sweat through? No! H-E-Double Hockey Stick No.
Problem though… Us Beckett Babes don’t want to sit around and waste the Summer away feeling hot and sorry for ourselves. We want to look good, feel good, and indulge in the Summer Instagram promised us even if our abs refuse to look like @kayla_itsines

I have yet to come across a city greater than Charleston, South Carolina…and I simply refused to leave for the summer. Growing up as a sandy blonde with green eyes in the heart of the South (Jackson, Mississippi), I quickly discovered that green was my color (with the guidance of my sandy blonde, green eyed mom). Living in Charleston has given me the perfect place to tan my skin and make it even easier to pull it off. To my fellow olive skinned, green eyed blondies–both of these outfits are a MUST.
Tip 1: White top and a green bottom. Welcome to my Wardrobe. There is nothing better than a flirty, structured shirt to go on top of an easy army green denim skirt. This top is so perfect to spice any outfit up, and the skirt is an easy everyday piece of clothing that can be dressed up and down. Throw a pair of light colored wedges or sandals on with this outfit and fly out the door…you’ll be the best dressed anywhere you go.
Tip 2: My southern roots…a denim dress. This is essential to anyone’s closet. You will look fabulous AND carefree. The green tank and multi colored clutch give this fun little dress a perfect pop of color. Wedges, sandals, sneakers…you name it. Anything goes. This is such an easy outfit to personalize and add character to. You can catch me on the streets of chuck wearing this any day of the week.
What a better way to spend the summer than working with two friends surrounded by the chicest clothes in the city of Charleston? Coming from the North, I was definitely in for a (lovely) surprise with the Charleston sun and heat. I learned quite quickly the importance of styling while keeping the forecast in mind. I had no problem either adjusting to the “Go with the Flow attitude” of the City allowing my wardrobe to fill with pieces that could be worn all day and (with the addition of a Wedge and some accessories) all night!
Tip 1:A top like this adorable off the shoulder button down has become a staple in my closet. I know I can throw it on with a pair of white cut offs or even some sleek jeans heading to an early day of work or a morning long brunch. When the sun sets and the streets cool off I’ll throw on a pair of fun flowy pants and a chunky heel to spice things up.
Tip 2:It’s important to keep in mind that it’s (truly) okay to stick with that color or design that continuously makes you happy, but engaging variety within those categories is key. These slate grey pants make me feel just as comfy and fashionable as the white wide legged pants above but I keep in mind I can style and wear these two slacks in a range of different ways
One of my favorite things to do in Chuck is wake up early and go grab a coffee from my favorite place, Blacktap on Beaufain. I live by the idea that whatever I throw on in the morning must last me throughout the day and make me happy. There is no fun in wearing pieces that don’t inspire you and excite you. I always choose quality over quantity because all my favorite pieces from my jean jacket to my silky dresses are recycled outfits throughout the year. Lastly, summer in Charleston is a the best city to strut your style in the streets.
Tip 1: The two key pieces that make this fun daytime outfit is the dress and the sneakers. My immediate daytime look always requires my sneakers. Pairing sneakers with a colorful dress is such a fun way to stand out. Furthermore, I am all about pairing pieces that are tight fitting alongside something unfitted like the coveted Jolene jean jacket.
Tip 2: Styling your clothes based on the colors that bring at your features is one of the most important tips in dressing. One of my favorite color combinations is red and pink because it really emphasizes my features like my brown eyes and hair which can sometimes can drowned out by my clothing choices.
