8 Under-$150 Swimsuits That Are Already Celeb-Approved for Summer

It’s no secret that celebrities have a penchant for wearing designer items. While we love luxurious, high-end fashion as much as the next person, it's always refreshing to see our favorite celebs steps out wearing something affordable. After all, the so-called "investment pieces" that we spot them wearing are just that—investments. They're items that we plan and save for; they may be expensive purchases, but they're not necessarily spontaneous purchases. We keep track of any affordable and celebrity-approved pieces we find for days when we feel the need to expand our wardrobe without minimizing our bank accounts.

Lately, many of those affordable and celebrity-approved pieces that we’re seeing are swimsuits… no surprise there; it is mid-July after all. Celebs like Selena Gomez, Ashley Graham, Kylie Jenner, and more, have all been spotted wearing swimsuits that are $150 and under. Keep scrolling to see them all (because why not refresh your swimsuit collection halfway through summer?).

Yara Shahidi posted this picture of her mid-nap to Instagram, tagging J. Crew as the brand behind her bright yellow bikini. While the yellow color, which is called "burnished citron" is currently only available in size large on the brand's website, there are a whole host of other colors to choose from (I have the exact same suit in red, and it's one of the comfiest swimsuits I've ever worn).

Alessandra Garcia Lorido might be the daughter of famous actor Andy Garcia, but the model and actress is a star in our own right (and her fashion-forward Instagram is proof of that). Here, she wears a hot pink tie-front bikini with mismatched blue bottoms while on vacation in Florida. The suit comes from ASOS. Buying both pieces will only put you out $27!).

Ashley Graham's Swimsuits for All partnership is still going strong. Here, she poses in one of her designs from the collaboration. The set features a scoop-neck top, a high-waisted bottom, and a dangling body chain that can be worn on the top or the bottom as you wish.

Dua Lipa is a fan of a printed one-piece swimsuit (that's if her recent Instagram posts are any indication). The one she wears in this picutre is from the brand Lysander Swim, and it's covered in dark green leopard print...If it's good enough for Dua Lipa, then it's good enough for us.
