Now that it’s officially bathing suit season, it’s best you know all of the looks that are in style this summer. Besides the high waist bikini, rash guards are also making a comeback. I know, you’re probably thinking, “Why would I wear this when I want to get a tan?” Or, “This is what surfers wear and I am definitely not a surfer!” But the rash guard brings a lot to the table that most bathing suits don’t.
First off, they aren’t all long sleeved, remember Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush? Girlfriend rocked the short-sleeve rash guard. And though many are sold with matching bottoms, you can still mix it up with all of your bikini bottoms. Sensitive skin, or possibly in need of a break from the sun? The rash guard is a perfect way to cover up without having to stay in the shade all day. Have I sold you on this trend yet? Well, take a look at the slideshow to see some adorable rash guards.
