If summer beach days and lying outside with your friends is something you've been daydreaming about quite a lot lately, then this story is for you. Oddly enough, swimwear can come with a pretty high price tag, but that doesn't always have to be the case. If you look really hard, you can find hidden gems that—although they won't cost you more than $100 (yes, for both pieces)—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 $20 bikini that looks like it cost $200.
Truly, no one will ever guess this was $20.
And this one as well.
This one's all in the details.
Obsessed with anything that matches my swimsuits.
Retro florals are all I can think about.
Joyous florals like this will never get old.
This bikini is simply perfect.
Bubblegum pink is the color to be seen in this summer.
An iconic print indeed.
Such a classic.
Something about colored zebra prints gets me every time.
What's summer without a little tie-dye?
Ribbing always makes things look more expensive than they actually are.
These dots are giving me life.
You can never go wrong with a basic suit like this.
Crisp and clean.
This color brings a big smile to my face.
No one will ever guess this is from Amazon.
