The tradition of a trousseau is age-old, when a woman began sewing clothes at an early age in anticipation of her marriage. While the concept of a trousseau is no longer practical, the idea of shopping for your wedding night and honeymoon is still enduring and relevant. The implication is timeless: new clothes for a new life.
Depending on where your honeymoon is, you might be packing bikinis for the beach or evening dresses for a European escape. Combine fabrics – cashmere, cotton, silk and lace – to create versatility. For any trousseau and any destination, a few pieces are essential: a lightweight cotton robe, a cashmere twin set, a little black dress with high-heels and a neutral-toned pashmina shawl. I strongly recommend packing black leggings for comfort, ease and practicality – I live by them. -XO, Vera
