The months leading to it fill you with so much anxiety that both you and your significant other can’t wait to put it behind you. Weddings are special and require your full attention. But what about some much-needed time for self-care? Well, that’s what honeymoons are for. They also serve as the perfect opportunity for you and your partner to get away from all the family drama—somewhere quiet, where you both can put your hair down and really connect with each other.
Once the relatives have left and gifts have been opened, it’s time for you to start thinking about your honeymoon. Some people like to plan well in advance while others act more spontaneously and make last-minute reservations. Whichever category you fall under, we suggest you pack according to the destination.
Today we’re discussing a tropical beach honeymoon because let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to escape to a warm and sunny island in the middle of December right? To make things easier, we’ve prepared an informal guide to beach honeymoon dressing that will ensure that you do more of the relaxing and less of the worrying. Let’s begin.
A tropical honeymoon calls for the best of resort wear—and that includes kaftans, maxi dresses, and basically everything flowy in vibrant colors. Pack some lightweight options that you can wear over your bikini during the day and some special ones that will be perfect for those beachside parties at night.
One must remember that honeymoons are not just for touristing and sightseeing. This is a time for you and your partner to spend quality time together and connect with each other. Staying in calls for comfortable yet chic loungewear options that include slip dresses, robes, and satin pajamas that can be dressed up with the right accessories.
The words bikini and beach are almost synonymous with each other. One simply doesn’t exist without the other. This is why you must pack at least a few pairs of bikini sets that will last you throughout the holiday. We recommend vibrant tropical prints and candy-colored crochet numbers.
Now moving from swim-wear to intimate-wear—pretty lingerie is something that will make you feel both romantic and provocative at the same time. You can pick options that suit your personality the best. If you’re shy and modest—something more covered up in muted shades sounds perfect. If you prefer all things feminine, then a pink, lace adorned number will do the trick. As for the risk-takers, how about something colorful paired with sexy stockings? Remember that your honeymoon is the perfect time for some naughty dressing, so don’t hold yourself back!
It goes without saying that every outfit is incomplete without the right accessories. The right bags and shoes are paramount in any setting. Now that we’re talking about the beachy resort chic setting, the shoes should be easy to wear and comfortable so that you can take long walks on the beach. But don’t forget to pack at least one pair of sexy heels for all the glamorous evening events. As for bags, we suggest you experiment with some colorful options that will elevate your look in an instant.
Here are some footwear options you can consider for your beach honeymoon.
