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.
