Looks for Jet Setting with Your Love
When wedding bells have sung out their final ring, it’s time to think about skipping the light fantastic out of town. Honeymoons are the reward for the sometimes arduous task of planning and executing a wedding and therefore should be a time of celebration for the newlyweds.
You’ve spent all of that time hunting down the perfect dress for your special day, so let us help you hone those hunting skills even further. If you’re planning a getaway with your beloved, you’ll need to pick up a few essentials before you dash off. You’ll be snapping pictures (and posting them, no doubt), so you’ll want to be dressed for the occasion, and we’ve got just the right threads for the honeymoon of your dreams.
THE EUROPEAN ESCAPISTS
What could be more glamorous than a sexy European ensemble for your honeymoon getaway? Let’s start off with a classic move for any European fashionista: the silk scarf. Hermes has more or less cornered the market for these, and every woman deserves to have at least one of them in her arsenal. Wrap yourself up in The Aloha scarf, a vibrantly illustrated depiction of a tropical paradise, centering on a thick, beautiful tree and a congregation of exotic birds.
A sometimes overlooked vacation costume piece, the midi skirt can be supremely comfortable. Anthropologie’s Riverine Midi Skirt is a linen (with a touch of spandex for some added give) stunner, complete with slant pockets, that is easy to pack and go. Available in white, green, or sky blue, it pairs marvelously with tanks for daytime jaunts on the beaches of the Amalfi Coast, as well as dressier tops for mealtime. If you’re going to take the sightseeing and casual route around Paris, perhaps the Hammonds Sneaker from The Office of Angela Scott is an exquisite way to go. A major cut above a typical slip-on, these poplin skate sneaks are adorned with black screened stripes and a full leather interior. Worn by the likes of Julia Roberts and Ellen Degeneres, Angela Scott’s shoes are the stuff of celebrity folklore.
THE BEACH BUMS
If you’d rather segue into wedded bliss on the sand and hear the waves crash upon the shore in a more laid-back ensemble, we’ve got you covered. Seilenna’s Rosella one-piece swimsuit is a blossoming firecracker that combines old- fashioned style with cutting-edge fun. The print, a floral executed with modern flair, showcases pink bursts of blossoms atop two distinct versions of the same cut: cream and deep purple. You’ll look the part of a classic Hollywood bombshell in the haltered top, which is fully adjustable and suits any body type.
Barney’s has got a Lola Hat which is the ideal accessory to top off this look. Keeping with the vintage iconography of the Rosella suit, these sweet, handmade straw lids are great for keeping your precious skin safe from the harshness of the, let’s say, Bermuda sun. While you’re taking a gander at Barney’s wares, slip into their Flagpole Swim cover up to complete your beachy look. Alternatively called The Grace Semi-Sheer Loose-Knit Dress, it’s an über glam crewneck lengthy cover up, allowing for some additional protection against those beaming rays.
THE SAFARI SEEKERS
For the more active honeymooner, a more rugged and stalwart outfit is in order. Abercrombie’s Drapey Trench Vest is a great place to start. A brilliant hybrid of function and form, you’ll be ready for adventure with this reliable long vest in a billowy cotton blend. The belted waist will keep your figure on display, while the deep pockets will allow you to tote around all of your necessaries.
Pair it with a deep green pair of J. Crew’s skinny stretch cargo pant with zippers and you’ll be a knockout ready for anything. With details like zippers at the ankles and vintage-style cargo pockets, they sit just above the hip and are made to keep you at your absolute comfiest, even in the African game parks. You’ll need some stylish shades for long days in an open four-wheeler seeing the roaming lions, and leopards, and hippos, (oh my!), and Brooklyn Spectacles’s Benson Suns in a dark cherry wood is the perfect combination of chic New York and rugged outdoorswoman.
