Honeymoon Beach Wardrobe Tips

By Jane Anderson, Editor of 101 Honeymoons

Exotic beach honeymoons are the perfect excuse to splash out on a sexy, fresh new holiday wardrobe. Finding the perfect bikini, kaftan, sunhat and shades can be tricky, especially when it’s out of season. Here are my top websites for sourcing the best in beachwear year-round.

Beach Café

I love Beach Café for its superb quality swimwear, floaty resort wear and holiday bags, featuring over 20 designers from Seafolly to Melissa Odabash all in one place. The easy to navigate website has notes on how to find your perfect fit and you can buy bikinis in separate sizes for tops and bottoms. It even has a section on trends including ‘Wedding Belles’.

Heidi Klein

Heidi Klein has long stood out as a beach wear specialist to watch with its fabulously designed own brands of bikinis, one-piece swimsuits and kaftans along with other designers from Anya Hindmarsh to Havaianas for everything from beach jewellery to flipflops. Watch out for regular sales too for genuine bargains.

Other great honeymoon wardrobe sites include Simply Beach, Beach Tomato and Tallulah & Hope (for kaftans). For men, some of the best swim shorts around are by Love Brand & Co, plus the company donates 5% of all sales to elephant charities.

My honeymoon beach wardrobe tips

• Investing in just one piece of expensive swimwear will pay off as it will fit so well and last longer, not to mention make you look hot! Treat it like an extension of your wedding wardrobe.

• When selecting your honeymoon wardrobe try and work around a few complementary colours.

• Invest in a glamorous sunhat for sun protection and style.

• When packing remember to roll clothes rather than fold and double check baggage allowance, especially on budget airlines as you don’t want to be caught out.
