We all have the moments when trying to pack to go out of town wondering if we are packing the right things and how to minimize what we are taking. This honeymoon fashion check list will ensure that you have your essentials and look your best no matter what you are doing.
First of all ladies, you should gather your travel attire, although you are traveling you should still be comfortable yet chic for when you arrive at your destination. Opt to wear a tunic top and sweater paired with straight leg jeans, they are comfy yet fashionable. Also travel with a tote instead of your usual purse, this will allow more room to carry more traveling essentials for you and your groom. Make sure that you wear your biggest/bulkiest shoe (riding boots) that you want to take so that you aren’t taking up needed space in your suitcase. Taking a scarf that is big enough to double as a blanket comes in handy if the flight is cold or if it is chilly out when you arrive at your destination.
Gentlemen when thinking about what you should wear on the plane you should follow the same rules. Wear your most comfortable pair of jeans and shirt with your bulkiest shoe (Timberland boots) that you would want to take on the trip but takes up too much space if you were to pack them in your suitcase. You should also have a jacket with you just in case your plane ride or destination is chilly out when you arrive there.
Now what you should pack is simple.
Ladies, a neutral pair of stilettos is the first thing to pack in your suitcase, they are versatile and will go with everything you pack in your suitcase. Also pack a pair of flat sandals for sight seeing. Guys should take a pair of neutral dress shoes as well, sometimes which neutral color depends on what color you plan on wearing. So if you are planning to wear brown take your brown shoes, navy take your navy shoes or if you are wearing black take your black shoes. So guys think about which neutral color you will be wearing and chose that color shoe.
Ladies when it comes to your clothes pack one tunic top because this can easily be dressed up and/or dressed down with no hassle. Take one white blouse and one fun color or print blouse that should be flirty, fun and feminine then pack a boat neck sweater into the mix for cooler nights. A boat neck sweater can easily be taken from casual to night life when paired right. You also will need two t-shirts and a tank top or two tank tops and one t-shirt either way works but make sure the tops are comfortable yet still fashionable. You don’t want to look like you are out running errands with the kids but like you are out on the town having a blast.
You should pack a pair of jeans, tailored shorts, and a mini or pencil skirt to wear to dinner or whatever nightlife entertainment you will be attending. Also include a swimsuit, even if your not honeymooning on a beach you still can sit poolside at a hotel, take your favorite lingerie, one black bra, one nude bra, four pairs of socks and seven pairs of panties. As far as your accessories go take one clutch bag that is the same color as your shoes, a set of bangle bracelets and a single pendant necklace.
Gentleman should pack a pair of khaki shorts, jean shorts, a pair of dress slacks to wear to nightly entertainment that match your dress shoes and a pair of jeans. You should also take a pair of sandals or sneakers/gym shoes to wear for sight seeing. Bring a sports jacket or a sweater, two short sleeve button ups, two long sleeve button ups and two beaters/undershirts and two t-shirts. You will also need these essentials as well so pack seven pairs of boxers and seven pairs of socks and swim trunks.
Even if you are not staying a week you should still pack like it to ensure several different options for what you will wear depending on which activities you are doing that day.
