Though it’s hard to believe, we’ve almost made it to swimsuit season. That’s right, lounging on the beach and soaking in that much-needed vitamin D—a summertime activity that seemed so far away at the beginning of the year—are just around the corner. So now’s finally the time to start parting ways with your cold-weather classics (bye, sweaters, coats, and Ugg boots) and start trading them in for summer dresses, lightweight blouses, and, you guessed it, fresh, new swimsuits.

Not only are the suits flattering, stylish, and comfortable, but many come with a very affordable price tag, as well. And we know how quickly swimwear prices can exceed our budget, right?
