Not all beach honeymoons are created equal, so you shouldn’t pack like they’re all the same. No matter what your ultimate destination is, we’ve got a chic beach look for you.
The Preppy Beach Look
You’ll want to evoke an old-school charm with your swimwear. Think retro details like scallop edges, high-waisted bottoms and bustier-style tops. Complete the look with cat-eye sunglasses, classic tan strappy sandals and a cute straw hat.
Destinations: Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Code
The Laid-back Beach Look
This look is a cheerful take on bohemian beachwear. The more psychedelic colors and patterns mixed together, the better.
Destinations: Southern California, Miami, Honolulu
The Sophisticated Beach Look
Just because you’re lounging on a beach that doesn’t mean you can’t look super chic. A black bikini is the beach equivalent of a little black dress–it’s timeless and tasteful. Pair it with a sophisticated straw hat, a pair of oversized tortoise shell sunglasses, and gold thong sandals for a perfectly posh look.
Destinations: St. Tropez, the Amalfi Coast, Santorini
The Adventurous Beach Look
You’re planning for an action-packed honeymoon. Choose a one-piece with straps so you don’t have to worry about a possible wardrobe malfunction while hiking around. But just because your swimsuit is practical that doesn’t mean it has to be boring–find a style that has a fun, playful print. For your accessories, you’ll want a pair of sturdy leather flats, a small carry-all bag and a pair of basic shades.
Destinations: Rio de Janeiro, Costa Rica, Cancun
