Hi besties. Unfortunately, we are quickly approaching the fall. While we could just sit here in crisis mode and panic about how fast time flies, there are still tons of things to get done before the summer is over. Sure, there’s squeezing in those last-minute beach trips, but I have something much more important in mind: Shopping all of the end-of-summer sales.
One of the best ways to hack the shopping system is to buy during the off-season. My focus tends to be buying boots in June, but the end-of-summer swimwear sales are incredible and honestly a little underrated. Wouldn’t you want to open your drawer next summer to find a bikini collection that you got for half off? We have to think about our future selves here.
Luckily, there are lots of adorable (discounted) suits to choose from. Just for you, I’ve compiled a bunch of options that are less than $50. Hurry up and shop before everyone else finds out!
1. Aerie Halter Bandeau Ring Bikini Top, $11.98 (Orig. $39.95)
I am very into this creamsicle vibe, plus the ring details throughout the set really take things up a notch. Get this: The top is on sale for $15.98, and the matching bottoms are only $11.98 — bringing the grand total for this adorable set to $27.96. What more do you need?
2. ASOS DESIGN Crinkle Skinny Scoop Bikini Top, $10.80 (Orig. $24.00)
At one point, these ASOS crinkly bikinis were all I had in my drawer. The material is so comfortable it just seems to cling to your body perfectly. I don’t really know how it works, but it’s phenomenal. If you add the top and the bottoms to your cart right now, you’ll only be paying $19.80, so I’d hurry.
3. For Love & Lemons Rosewater Bandeau Top, $42.99 (Orig. $89)
I know we’ve been giving you full bikini sets, but this For Love & Lemons top is just so good for mixing and matching. It’s got adorable frills and a pretty pattern, but it’s still plain enough to go with the black or white bottoms you already have at home. It’s on the pricier side, but I’d definitely snatch it up with a discount like this.
4. H&M Padded Triangle Bikini Top, $6.75 (Orig. $8.99)
This option from H&M is so classic. Doesn’t the dark brown just feel so elegant? Plus, the whole set is literally less than $14.
5. ASOS DESIGN Seersucker Frill Triangle Bikini Top, $14 (Orig. $22.99)
Gingham just feels like the quintessential summer pattern, so I’m really rooting for this ASOS set. Don’t forget the bottoms!
6. Out From Under Bermuda Cutout Swimsuit, $24.95 (Orig. $79.00)
Again, I’m breaking the rules here a little. I’ve always loved a cutout one-piece that gives bikini vibes but provides a little more support, and this one is definitely a winner. The color is gorg, the design is gorg, and the price is very gorg!
7. Aerie Terry Triangle Bikini Top, $13.98 (Orig. $34.95)
This bikini feels super Malibu Barbie-coded (terry cloth, flower print, vibes), and I just love that my middle school self would’ve loved it too. Before I tear up, I have to tell you that the set is less than $25, so you should really grab it while you can.
