Now that every fashion wedding requires at least two outfit changes, it makes sense that following on from this style extravaganza, the honeymoon wardrobe has become a thing. That’s not to say that you have to spend hours meticulously planning outfits that look ready to be papped on the Côte d'Azur. The idea of the honeymoon wardrobe is all about carrying on the glow you have on your wedding day. So why not extend the fabulous vibe of your nuptials for a full week or more while you're relaxing with your new spouse?
The brilliant thing about this is that it doesn't really need much organisation either. There are even some clear rules I've gleaned from some of my favourite stylish Instagrammers who have documented their honeymoon looks. Ultimately, you want your wardrobe to match your surroundings: Think bold colours, floaty dresses and bright sandals and accessories. Everything should be worn to show off your post-wedding glow. From Florrie Thomas and Pandora Sykes to Hannah Bronfman and Pernille Teisbaek, behold the five key pieces you need to pack for your honeymoon to make it the most fabulous holiday ever.
1. Pack an endless supply of swimwear
This is an obvious one, but you'll be spending the majority of your time in swimwear, so make sure every piece you pack is one you love. One-pieces or bikinis only (so long as you have enough).
2. You'll need your most romantic dresses
The honeymoon dress isn't just any old sundress. If you could mistake it with a nightie, you're along the right tracks. Pack a couple of these and then some knockout party frocks for the evening and you're all set.
3. Footwear should be optional or super comfortable
Bare feet are, of course, preferable when on honeymoon, but if you must wear something, then opt for a chic pair of white plimsolls or chunky and comfy "dad" sandals.
4. Big earrings and no makeup
After all the skincare prep pre-wedding, it's time to embrace your natural look and go makeup-free. Plus, if you're in warmer climes, your makeup is only going to slide off. If you want to compensate for a lack of makeup, make a statement with big earrings.
5. Sunglasses and big hats are a must
Of course, you need a pair of sunglasses (or three) and a sunhat for your honeymoon. Make sure they're as big and as fabulous as possible.
