Blue Crush was the start of my wetsuit envy. Seeing Kate Bosworth in her super sick rash guards totally made me buy one to wear on my wakeboarding (mis)adventures. I swear it had (almost) nothing to do with the surfer boys. And we love when we see the styles emerge from the ocean and end up on the runway or in non-surf shops, like this high-waisted skirt that designer Thomas Renaud created in collaboration with Screaming Mimi’s. Renaud designed it as a part of his COMBHARD for Screaming Mimi's line. The super futuristic skirt is made of breathable neoprene and is completely reversible.
We're liking the black and nude with multicolor stitching, but it also comes in teal and black and all-black versions. The skirts hit the Montauk and NYC Screaming Mimi's stores (where the line will be sold exclusively) this week and are sell for highly reasonable $110. Kate Bosworth, eat your heart out. --MELISSA ELLIOTT
