Technology and versatility all in one pretty package: That's this Adidas by Stella McCartney rash guard ($130; in a nutshell.

So whether you're headed to the beach, barre, or brunch, consider this your new go-to top. (Need a bottom to go with that top? Find The Most Flattering Bikini Bottom for Your Butt.)

Florals + florals = double the outfit envy.
