It might seem odd to be thinking about new bathing suits with the end of summer looming uncomfortably near, but I’m waiting for this old-school gingham bikini by Pret-a-Surf ($260) to go on sale. Of course we can’t all look as fetching in it as Marion Cotillard did in the July issue of Vogue, but it’s such a gorgeous throwback to vintage elegance—so much so that I had to look at it twice to check if it actually covered the belly button.
