Welcome to the summer of the rash guard. If you don’t already own one of these surfer mainstays, you probably will soon. And (unlike in summers past) it will be cute. A rash guard that’s a collaboration between Pret-à-Surf and J. Crew. Diane von Furstenberg has collaborated with the traditional surf-gear designer Roxy to offer an $ 88 long-sleeve shirt.
