Can you believe summer is already halfway over? Me neither. It feels like yesterday that I was spending quarantine looking up all the cute swimsuits I could wear for the upcoming summer. The main issue I kept on finding again and again was that swimsuits can be rather boring. It’s hard to make swimsuits stylish, modern, or “you.” But with summer being half over, it means there’s still a whole other half of summer to find the perfect swimsuit.
The most important thing when it comes to choosing a swimsuit is cut. Sure, colour is important. But it’s the cut that makes or breaks the look. That’s why I’ve chosen high-cut bottoms, high-waisted bottoms, and one pieces as my picks for this year’s swimsuit trends. When you get the right cut, it won’t matter where you wear it, whether it’s on vacation, by the pool, or in your backyard, you’ll have a look that’s both stylish and modern .
Below are 5 options I’ve chosen for under $50. Summer is half over, so I don’t want to spend a lot on a swimsuit I’ll only be able to use a handful more times this year. These picks are high-cut bottoms, high-waisted bottoms, and one pieces that provide a modern, chic look at an inexpensive price tag.
