Honeymoon style: Amalfi Coast


While our everyday style at S&A tends to lean more towards whimsical classics and timeless accessories à la Audrey Hepburn, there is something to be said about the vibrant glamour of the Amalfi Coast, especially if you find yourself honeymooning in this part of the world. And whether you’re relaxing on the picturesque, umbrella-lined rocky beaches of Positano, soaking in the beautiful architecture of Amalfi, or taking a leisurely stroll through romantic gardens of Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, you’ll feel utterly inspired to dress the part of a Italian movie star (think bright colors, ruffles, fun prints, and fabulous accessories like the very on-trend cat eye sunglasses we’ve been seeing everywhere).  

To help you achieve that Sophia Loren vibe, we’ve rounded up a few fashionable items that will see you through an unforgettable Italian honeymoon - or any beach getaway - and outlined when and where these pieces will make the most impact!

  • This cute and affordable structured straw bag would be perfect for strolls and shopping for handmade leather sandals along the colorful streets of Positano. Wear it with a breezy yellow dress, like this one from Anthropologie, as an ode to the lemon trees prevalent in this region of Italy, and a pair of espadrilles for comfort. Add a contrasting Gucci floral print scarf  and fasten around your neck or into a headband for some extra style. Throw on a cardigan and you’ll be all set for a casual lunch by the sea.
  • Take a cue from the floral and geometric ornate ceramic tiles found all over the Amalfi Coast and rock a feminine, patterned swimsuit like this Tory Burch one-piece. Add these fun Roberi & Fraud cat eye sunnies to protect your eyes while sunbathing on the rocky beaches or swimming in the bright blue Tyrrhenian Sea or floating in the majestic infinity pool at Monastero Santa Rosa.
  • Make a bold statement when dining at the famed hotel Le Sirenuse’s romantic, Michelin-starred restaurant La Sponda with this white and blue ruffled MISA dress and Alexandre Birman Clarita heels. Personally, we’d love to see this outfit paired with a Shirley & Audrey sheer organza Dahlia tucked into a messy updo for a romantic look that befits one of the most romantic restaurants in the world.
