What better way to start celebrating your married life than by taking off on a honeymoon by the beach. Find paradise in the clear waters of the Seychelles, jet off to Saint Tropez for a week in the sun, or perhaps you’ve always wanted to visit the Bahamas, and now is your chance! But what to wear?
Whether you choose to spend your days relaxing on the sands or exploring the cliffs or hiking trails, there is always something for you.
Florals always come back around in the summer, along with light shades and bright colours, and ladies are never far from wrong with a maxi dress. No matter what height you are there’s always one out there to suit you – being a teeny 5ft 2” I can vouch for that!
If you’re planning a more active getaway, don’t forget the denim shorts (though perhaps not the ‘short short’ kind). Team it with a simple baggy T-shirt to keep you cool in the heat and find a quirky hat to match. Straw hats are a personal fave for heading abroad, though they never seem to see the light of day in the UK…
Guys, I have to admit, I don’t know how you find any inspiration normally – the search for menswear leaves little on the Pinterest board! So let me assist.
Heading to the beach can only warrant the board shorts and t-shirt combo.
SO MANY OPTIONS!
Swap the t-shirt for a loose, open shirt in the evening and you’re away! White seems to be the favoured colour here for the top half, so I’d suggest perhaps a darker colour for the bottom half; blues or browns work best.
If you feel like exploring rather than sticking to the beach, why not don a pair of chinos for a change; casual and cool. Though perhaps wear them with a t-shirt rather than a cream blazer on the rock pools…
Ladies – after wowing your partner with your wedding dress, how do you top that?
You could try with a simple, strappy white dress for a stroll along the beach, reminiscing about your day.
Or stick with the trendy, tropical colours and opt for a long sleeved maxi number, teamed with some chunky accessories.
Gents, if you fancy a change from the board shorts, or perhaps the evenings start getting a little cooler, go for the shirt over t-shirt look. Roll up those sleeves and pair it with some chinos and fancy shoes and whisk your partner out for evening. Simple, light colours, even for the shoes, really do suit a beach honeymoon.
