Must-wear fashions for your warm-weather honeymoon

I would bet money that you’re probably planning to honeymoon in a location that has a beach or pool. Most brides no longer purchase a traditional trousseau, but they will pick up a few new things to wear while they’re away—for both day and nighttime activities. Last week I covered lingerie, so now it’s time to focus on sexy daywear attire. Here are some of the hottest swimsuits and coverups you’ll need for lounging on the beach or by the hotel pool:
