Bikinis are likely the last thing on your mind right now amid the current pandemic we're in, but if summer beach days and lying outside with your friends is something you daydream about, then this story will hopefully lift your spirits. Oddly, swimwear can come with a pretty high price tag, but that doesn't always have to be the case. If you look hard enough, you can find hidden gems that, although they won't cost you more than $100 (yes, for both pieces combined), they will look like you paid much more than that.
When it comes to finding cheap swimwear that looks expensive, there are a few things that you should be mindful of: prints, seams, and straps. So long as those few details are examined with a fine-tooth comb, you'll be fooling everyone as you wear a $17 bikini that looks like it cost $200.
