You’ve said ‘I do’ and now it’s time for your honeymoon, hooray! If you and your S.O. have decided on a European jaunt during the warmer months, you’ll certainly need of a suitcase full of fresh fashions—and we’re here to help you prep your packing list!
First, think about your desired itinerary. Will you be wining and dining your way through various cities? Are you planning for a few days by the sea? How about sight-seeing? We highly recommend taking scenic routes, exploring ancient monuments, and soaking up your destination’s one-of-a-kind culture. Maybe you’ll do it all, and we hope that you do! But whether you’re hyperactive tourists or a laid-back vacationers, for each of these activities you’ll want stylish ensembles that you’ll feel comfortable in while covering a lot of ground. Most importantly, they need to be cute enough to capture on film (your honeymoon must be documented for the memories!). Oh, and also for a few snaps that you’ll undoubtedly share on social media.
Whether you’re set to honeymoon in the South of France, on the Amalfi Coat, or buzzy Lisbon, ahead we’re breaking down five must-have ensembles for any European honeymoon.
For a day of wine tasting, shopping, or getting lost along winding cobblestone streets, a frilled sundress is eye-catching yet easy. With flat gladiator sandals and a straw cross-body bag, you’ll feel comfortable and unconstrained while snapping pics, perusing markets, or sipping an Aperol spritz. We also recommend a wide-brimmed hat and sunnies to chicly shield your skin.
If you’re sight-seeing or simply out and about exploring, an outfit with a little more utility is ideal. Compliment relaxed, loose-fitting chinos with a one-shoulder tank, lace-up sandals, and a lightweight woven bag that slings closely on your arms sans worry.
Another effortlessly stylish look, long, high-rise denim cut-offs are darling with a feminine white cotton top. Classic white sneakers keep you mobile for daytime activities while sculptural earrings, a playful straw tote, and sleek cat-eye sunglasses keep the look fashion forward.
We love a colorful dress with voluminous shoulders for a nonchalant European evening. A vibrant mini bag, lightweight chandelier earrings, and woven platforms will take you from dinner to drinks to dancing with ease.
For a day spent seaside, you’ll likely still do a bit of exploring, too. Aim for an outfit that layers easily over a swimsuit—A white cotton wrap dress can be worn open for a bit of coverage or cinched at the waist if you’re heading to a restaurant for lunch. Raffia slides are easy to slip in and out of while a roomy carry-all can hold all your sunny essentials like a towel and sun hat.
