With the arrival of summer comes the ideal time to delve into the array of swimsuits available, especially when the season brings such an abundance of styles and sales. I’ve had my share of challenges in finding the perfect swimsuit, but I’ve honed my preferences over time. I use to lean towards the classic one-piece, but now appreciate a well-fitted two-piece that elegantly flatters and holds its own. The crown jewel of my collection is a versatile swimsuit that transitions with ease. Paired with a summer dress, kaftan, wrap, airy shorts, or linen trousers, it effortlessly bridges the gap between beach and brunch, or pool and shopping. Here, I’ve curated some of my top summer swimsuits, each under $300, representing a blend of style, functionality, and value.
