Role Models: Vintage Summer Beauties

These classic babes of summer are our modern-day inspiration

Grace Kelly

Real princesses don't wear floofy pink gowns. Princess Grace's timeless, elegant, and polished style means classic silhouettes, a simple, sophisticated palette, and excellent posture (even at the beach).

$55.00 - $110.00
With gorgeous stacked mermaid scallops atop the cups, delicate picot edging on the band, swoop-up to the spacer, and impeccable balconette fit, this will make everyone smile.
$37.00 - $74.00
Blushing three-paneled cups are slightly fuller coverage (for support plus gorgeousness) while the subtly pretty lace at the cups is downright temptation.
$37.00
One of our favorite boyshort silhouettes in a deliciously old-fashioned rose print? It's heirloom china meets breezy-open-window summertime, and we simply love that.
$178.50 - $255.00
Calling Botticelli! This brilliant scalloped edge bikini would look pretty perfect riding into the beach on a giant seashell. But, honestly, it's pretty perfect for anywhere.
$104.00
Our favorite kind of loveliness, this petal pink and sweetly sensuous softbra features cutting edge laser-cut-lace technology, crisp and gorgeous and totally fresh.
$92.00
With a gorgeous floral silk overlay, delicate shirring on the cups, double yoke straps, pale pink bows, and lace ruffle on the cups and band make this a feminine masterpiece.

Brigitte Bardot

If you heart Sophia Coppola as much as you do Godard and if you take to the golden sands of St. Tropez like a fish to water, then Miss Bardot's effortless French style c'est parfait.

$74.00
This is what happens when flower power, solar power, and girl power combine. Merrimekko-esque floral, brilliant canary palette, and classic demi shape is high wattage indeed.
$505.00
The seaglass and sky-blue deco-inspired pattern of these luxe PJ's is so moderne fabulous we can't wait to put on an Ella record, pour ourselves a gin rickey, and just relax.
$55.00 - $110.00
Hushed tones and lovely softness almost mask the architectural genius of this longlined softbra. Hugs curves, gives serious oomph without a wire, and is a total knockout.
$42.70 - $61.00
Surfer-girl chic and gorgeous-floral fabulous, this classic triangle string bikini top gets a luscious upgrade in the form of Zinke's signature cotton lace overlay.
$47.50 - $95.00
This slinky, lacy softbra makes us want to indulge our flirty side with awesomely sheer lace, ruched straps, and a picture perfect bow. Heart.
$179.00
Bringing to mind perfect fitted bodysuits of yore, this Peter Pan collared button up, which hugs curves down to its garters, is begging for a pencil skirt and a power play.

Raquel Welch

Well, hello, bombshell. It takes a lot to smolder in black and white. For bold summer beauties like Raquel, we recommend making sure that the temperature stays high, even after sundown.

$49.00 - $70.00
Made of soft stretch shirred shirting fabric, fixed to the band, embellished with perfectly blingy gold rings, this bikini is perfect for poolside romps and surf's-up action.
$68.00
On the lookout for a glamorous t-shirt bra? This is it. Lightly molded cups, glorious palette, peek-a-boo detail, and classic silhouette. For the glamazon who wears V-necks.
$62.00
The sound that the dusky breezes make at the sunset, the music of the chime in the eaves, the deep-heart feeling of love that happens at twilight. That's pretty much this.
$70.00
This pale blush pink lace and mesh demi is gorgeous and feminine, as supportive as it is stunning, as lovely as it is totally wearable. Bonjour, mademoiselle!
$95.00
For those times when we'd rather be packing our for a romantic getaway than prepping for an all-day meeting, we keep in mind that this noir-sophisticated demi can do both.
$87.50 - $175.00
Hot pink is super girly, and everything else (the peek-a-boo rear panel, the luxe silk, the stunning lace at the cups, and the luxe band at the empire waist) is all grown up.
