Now that we've settled on the venue, here comes the important part - the dress code.
Stumped over what to wear? Here's a simple style guide to help you pack (you’re welcome).
1. VENICE, ITALY
A palazzi of infinite pastel shades reflected in quiet canals, and the soft splash of a gondola plying a watery backstreet: there's really no competition. For romance, Venice is the perfect backdrop.
In these less formal moments, aim for a perfect balanced silhouette with a crisp white shirt and cropped black pants. Add a hint of flamboyance with standout accessories, this look takes you seamlessly from exploration during the day time to a night at the bar.
Stunning white-sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, unparalleled snorkeling, gorgeous rustic-chic villas over the water or on the sand, and fine dining. What's not to like?
Who says you can't dress up for a beach vacation? Opt for a smart casual outfit during a romantic candlelight dinner at that famous restaurant under the sea. Tempting as it is because of the warm weather, flip flops are an absolute no go for your special dinner.
3. NEW YORK
New York certainly doesn't lack gorgeous places to wine and dine. But what's really romantic is NYC's really beautiful, simple treasures. From the classic attractions, like the view from the Empire State Building, to lesser-known delights such as the Butterfly Conservatory at the American Museum of Natural History, we're sure it'll set your heart aflutter.
Dress like a New Yorker with clean lines and a slim cut silhouette. Layering is essential, especially during the winter or early spring where temperatures can be sub-zero. Add final touches of sharp and sleek accessories to complete the look.
4. SANTORINI, GREECE
Greece and romance may as well be synonymous. Whether you are looking for an ideal honeymoon destination or just a romantic escape, the beauty and diversity of the Greek landscape forms the most romantic backdrop to celebrate your love.
STYLE TIPSSantorini is extremely stylish, but don’t go bling, think elegant and sophisticated. Bold bright colours look stunning against the white-washed surfaces. Crisp white shirts, and tailored pants are de rigueur. The people here have an eye for fashion, the key is to look like you’ve just stepped off your million pound yacht.
Iceland easily conjures up romantic notions of remote landscapes covered in snow in winter or steaming underground pools surrounded by cave formations. Whatever your romantic fantasy, Iceland has many great options for the perfect getaway.
Iceland is the new place to be, with its thriving city of Reykjavik, it’s fast becoming a bustling city where culture and style come together to the sound of Björk. Make sure you have all the essentials to make this holiday the best ever.
