Coney Island, the sun, the sea, a slice of pizza and a sprinkling of goose pimples. The day before these pictures were taken, it snowed in New York City. In fashion's calendar, summer clothes are available only in winter; when the temperature hits 70F, summer dresses and bikinis are gathered on to the sale rails. For the complete holiday wardrobe, tailored for when sea breezes run high, don't forget a cotton cardigan and a pair of hot pants to pull on over your string bikini.
