The dreariness of winter has us counting the days until spring break, when we can jet off to a tropical locale to soak up the sun while laughing at the fact that it’s probably snowing in Syracuse. Spring break provides us with a whole week to spend worry-free—that is, until our credit card bills arrive in the mail, stacked high with the expenses of airline tickets, hotel rooms, and bar tabs.
Save yourself a little financial stress, and check out Zipped’s spring break bikini picks that are guaranteed to make you look your best for much less, no matter the destination.
