As a Cropped Top....
How to Take Vintage Swimsuits Beyond the Pool
Hemlock Vintage
There are more than a few of French designer Cacharel's halter-necked two-pieces from the 1980's to be found floating around the Internet. The gingham print and center buttons are not only precious, they make this a legitimate "top", for those who don't mind sharing a bit of midriff while on vacation.

Wear It With: You can absolutely wear this as a bathing suit; if you're uncomfortable with wearing a vintage bottom, switch it out for a plain black or white one. Alternatively, wear the top with a long flowing skirt; black, if you're conservative and yellow, if you're into brights!
