Rash guards, though meant for water sports, pair just as well with your favorite jeans or skirts as they do with a surfboard and salt water. For proof, check out these five summer outfits!
That flaming fuchsia hue couldn't be more summery if it tried. Pair it with some bright white denim for a knockout ensemble that's perfect for a party.
Amongst the many places where you're likely to spot lace, on a rash guard probably isn't one of them—but that's precisely why this Rachel Comey one is so cool! Play up that feminine element by pairing it with a flippy mini in the same flirty fabric.
Instead of reaching for your favorite cardigan again, why not go for a zip-front rash guard instead? Avoid layering it over loose or voluminous tops—its snug fit makes it a bad match for that—and opt instead for a slip-style dress or slim tank top or tee.
Let a cool abbreviated version stand in for a standard-issue crop top; it'll look smashing with a high-waisted skirt. By choosing one in a fabric and/or shade that matches your rash guard, you can even fake the look of a matching set!
For a fresh twist on mixed prints, pair a botanical-print surf shirt with bold shorts embroidered with a similar motif.
