Your honeymoon is the perfect, much-needed tonic to unwind after the wedding whirlwind. The opportunity to relax, connect and reflect on this momentous occasion shouldn't be underestimated: it really is a super special vacation. If you're planning to jet off straight after your wedding, it's easy to let packing slip to the bottom of the long to-do list. But in our view, it's never too early to plan your honeymoon wardrobe, an approach followed by celeb stylist and wardrobe consultant, Allison Bornstein.

The champion of elegant, effortless style explains: "Being a smart packer and smart shopper is all about being prepared and giving it a bit of thought. Being strategic in your packing process will help you curate a vacation wardrobe that leaves room for confidence and joy, rather than stress and overwhelm."

Strategic honeymoon packing

So, where to begin? The vibe of your honeymoon destination is the obvious place, as what to pack will be dictated by the type of vacation you'e planning. For example, total sun bed relaxation at a luxury resort in Turks and Caicos will require quite a different wardrobe to a trip exploring the historical sites of Rome. But whatever the destination, it's also important to keep your personal style in mind to avoid buying items you'll wear a couple times on honeymoon then be left to languish at the back of your wardrobe. If need help refining your personal style, Allison's video on the 3 Word Method is a good place to start.

With the general vibe of your honeymoon in mind, consider a color palette that will allow you to easily mix and match separates and accessories. Bornstein recommends creating a moodboard of looks that you love, then pulling items from your existing wardrobe and displaying them on a rail (or lay out on the bed). Shopping from your own wardrobe to create vacation looks will help you to identify gaps of the items you actually need, before you hit the shops and make impulse purchases. We're all about investing in forever pieces that will work hard in your closet for years to come. Discover our pick of 15 honeymoon wardrobe essentials for effortless honeymoon style.
