Summer Staples // Affordable Swim

Summer Staples // Affordable Swim

I always tell myself that I don’t need any more swimsuits but it’s inevitable that I buy more and more each and every year. Who doesn’t love swimsuits? I wanted to stock up on a few more for when I head down to Atlanta for labor day weekend. We’re spending the whole trip at my sister’s in-law’s lake house and yes, new suits are a must! Each of the swimsuits I’m showing you today are all under $15. Yes, it was intentional that I put ‘affordable’ in the title. Be sure to make it to the end of this post to shop all the pieces in each photo!


I love a good one piece suit. I’ve been expanding my collection by adding in a few brighter colors like this orange one here. There are also five other bright colors to choose from. I’m wearing a medium for size reference. I wanted to pick out styles with belts to really accentuate my waist. I got three styles with belts and most are removable. This belt, however, is not removable. The straps and belt are connected making the straps adjustable. This suit is lightly padded and the cups can come out.
I added straw accents with the hat and bag.


Sticking with the one piece suits; another bright color with a belt. I’ve been looking for a good yellow swimsuit and this one is perfect. Yellow compliments my olive skin tone and makes me look so tan. This style also comes in other colors. The material is ribbed, has a belt (which is removable) and also has removable straps. The material is also a bit thicker. Since the straps are removable you can cross them in the back, keep them straight or take them off altogether. I bought another suit with a belt (in white: see next suit) and plan on putting it on this suit… LOVING the contrast and the fact that I can interchange the belt color. I’m wearing a medium here too. Suit is fully lined and cups are removable.
I added a lace kimono over this suit and really love the look. The belted style is a little retro to me and goes perfectly with the white sunnies.


I only purchase two piece swimsuits if the bottoms are higher waisted. I feel more comfortable in them. The closest I get to wearing a white suit is this black and white one here. This style comes in 21 different color combinations! What a selection. I’m wearing a medium and it fits great. I love the color block look. This color combination looks classy and expensive. Some of the other color options are much more playful with patterns. As mentioned above, the belt is removable. The suit is fully lined and the cups are removable too.
I wanted to pair this suit with a sarong to maintain the classy, sexy vibe. Tying it off to one side lets a little leg peak through.

Last two piece suit is this polka dot green one. I thought the ties on the straps were the cutest thing and I could not pass it up. This suit is much more playful and girly. Green is my favorite color so naturally I chose it but it also comes in blue. The bottoms are high waisted which I love. I’m wearing a medium in this style. I don’t have a whole lot of bandeau style suits and I wanted to add more to my collection. Really loving the square neckline; it is so in right now.
I thought the top of this suit looked like a crop top so I paired it with a pair of high waisted shorts. A great styling option for a day out and about with no need to change.

      I only like yellow on me in the Summer when I’m tanned otherwise it really washes me out. The top is a little large on me #ittybittytittycommitee but with the straps it works. I really LOVE the orange one.
