Inexpensive bikinis are pretty much a dime a dozen, but for bikinis that look high end without burdening your budget - well that can be a challenge. Fear not: we're here to help! Here are our five picks for stylish and posh-looking two-pieces that all retail for less than $100.
2. Cheap and chic
For a stylish bikini at the very low end of the price spectrum, Newport News has you covered. Their wrapped halter bikini gives the typical string bikini a snappy update with an extra band tie. The suit comes in four prints: blue floral, denim blue, geometric and white dot. Our picks? The colorful polka-dotted print has cheerful, feminine and flirty written all over and the denim blue, which gives off a subtle aura of classic French toile while still keeping an edge. And the best part? It's currently on sale for only $25 (yes! for both pieces!).
