Hopefully, your honeymoon will involve white sandy beaches, blue skies, turquoise seas, and piña coladas at sunset. If that’s the case, then invest in some bangin’ beachwear for your trip of a lifetime. A good way to get better cost per wear out of your bikinis is by going for mix and match styles. Matching patterned pieces with plain can look really effective, especially if the colours are complimentary. Floaty maxi dresses are the perfect day to night outfit. Throw them over a bikini on the beach, and pair with wedges in the evening.
