What to Wear on Your Honeymoon
Q. I'm traveling to the Italian lakes in mid-September for my honeymoon. I will be staying at Villa d'Este and Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Any wardrobe suggestions?

A. Fall in northern Italy calls for chic attire that transitions well from day to night. Since temperatures this time of year will be around the mid-60s, opt for layering pieces that don't skimp on style. Villa d'Este is the perfect place to channel your inner celebrity with elegant accessories—the grande dame has hosted everyone from Greta Garbo to George Clooney. Pack comfortable dresses and lightweight trousers for evening activities, like a fondue dinner at Grand Hotel Tremezzo's L'Escale wine bar. It's your honeymoon, so have fun with your attire and let Lake Como's old-time glamour inspire you!
A wool-blend dress from Diane von Furstenberg ($498) is perfect for a night out.
Wrinkles are part of the design of this Frank & Eileen Italian cotton shirt ($178), so it can be worn with ease.
For a tailored approach to outerwear, try Lafayette 148’s lightweight jacket ($468).
Manolo Blahnik embellished mules (price upon request) are a great accent to any ensemble.
