Floating on the high of newlywed bliss? Sounds like heaven, although that's no excuse for letting your style momentum fall by the wayside.

Granted, the planning involved in the lead up to your big day will no doubt have left you on the brink of exhaustion. Weddings are for the organisational elite – a truth universally acknowledged. 

But before you know it, you'll have said "I do", and after a whirlwind of top notch tablescapes, well-meaning speeches and crowd-pleasing tunes, it'll be all over and onto the next outfit change.

The honeymoon period is supposed to be the picture of relaxation, a chance for you and your beloved to unwind and enjoy each other's company before the realities of marriage kick into gear.

Perfect your packing list ahead of time and give It-girl Sofia Richie a run for her money. If you're vying for her role of chicest new bride, you may like to bring the wedding tradition of dressing in white into your next chapter.

 How we chose:

  • Style: The traditional honeymoon destination is somewhere hot and picturesque – think idyllic white sand beaches and crystal-clear azure waters. For this outfit edit, we've taken into account the warm weather, and acknowledged the fact that the occasion calls for a more elevated, refined version of your usual holiday wardrobe. Start as you mean to go on and all that…
  • Colour palette: A major trend among the brides of today is extending the white agenda into the honeymoon. This doesn't mean you can only wear white on your romantic getaway, far from it. But the crisp freshness of the shade feels synonymous with new beginnings, and harking back to the joy of your wedding with a white-focused outfit can be categorically chic.
  • Price: Weddings in general, let alone your own, can cost a total bomb. To keep your bank balance looking healthy, we've curated these outfits using a mix of both high street and designer labels, carefully selecting pieces that look super luxe.

The chic swimsuit

For poolside glamour, look no further than Cult Gaia's cut-out one-piece. The spherical detailing along the neckline and centre has a pearl-like feel, and I love how it dances between both swimsuit and bikini territory. For a touch of metallic warmth, these statement earrings by Rai Jewellery look super luxe. Throw all your essentials into Loewe's Anagram basket bag for an elevated accessory moment.

Inject your honeymoon wardrobe with a gentle touch of tailoring via Mango's button-down waistcoat. Style with Toteme's cult-adored silk trousers for a relaxed, slightly more casual silhouette. If your budget allows, consider Christian Louboutin's chunky raffia platforms with pretty gabardine ankle ties. Bring it all together with a touch of gold in the form of Orelia's 18k gold plated T-bar chain bracelet.
