It's officially spring, or as you may like to call it: vacation season. You've made it through the holidays and the worst of what winter had to offer, and you deserve a treat (and warmer, sunnier weather). Or, at the very least, you can treat yourself to a $30 bikini from Aerie's swim sale — because even if it doesn't leave your closet until your local swimming pool opens up, the store's deals shouldn't be missed.
Have you never shopped one of the brand's massive sales before? You've been missing out. While it may be the lingerie-focused lifestyle sub-brand of American Eagle Outfitters, Aerie's affordable, high-quality bralettes took them from side note to cult famous. (Aerie's body-positive campaigns definitely helped, too.) And like the famous bralettes, the swimwear covers sizes other brands ignore, including XXL and XXS — all the while being accessible and affordable to shoppers. Starting to see why the internet loves Aerie now?
Further proof: Aerie's sale covers its entire line of swimwear, and prices are up to 50 percent off. And thankfully the pieces are effortlessly chic, too. Aerie incorporated all the swimwear-appropriate trends you're going to see everywhere this spring; you'll spot trends like the ever-popular slime green, bold prints, and summery tie-dye patterns as you scroll through the giant sale.
And for prices so much lower than most retailers. In a pink-and-blue tie-dye pattern named "Sapphire Mist", the Aerie Longline Scoop Bikini Top and Bottom set was already a steal: the top retailed for $34.95 while the bottoms were just $24.95. However, the sale price for the set is outrageous; both are 50 percent off, bringing the entire set down to a little under $30.
So you may as well grab another piece (to give you all of the options you need on that upcoming vacation). Give the slime green trend a whirl with Aerie's Pique Ruffled Scoop Bikini, marked down from $29.95 to $20.96; the shape itself is understated, but the ruffles and eye-catching color make it a statement piece. Go for Aerie's Tie Cutout One Piece Swimsuit while it's on sale for $27.47 from $54.95 if you like the trend but need other colors in the mix.
Those aren't the only must-haves from the sale, though. Below, some of the under-$30 deals you shouldn't miss from Aerie's swim sale.
