If you've got it, flaunt it. Just take a look at Lady Gaga, who recently posted an Instagram video where she unabashedly showed off some skin in an eye-catching, star-shaped bikini by Layla + Layli.

The powerhouse performer made a splash in this vibrant orange stunner, which featured two strategically placed star-shaped pieces of fabric across her chest, complete with sexy string details wrapped around her back.

She wore matching side-tie bikini bottoms with flirty string details, and emerged from a swimming pool posing with her hands in her hair, like the goddess she is. Just goes to show you that the most essential thing you can rock this summer is a cool, confident vibe.

The Layla + Layli Stella top is priced at $69, and the matching bikini bottoms will set you back $73. As much as we love this standout poolside look, we're a tad apprehensive about spending $142 for such teeny-tiny pieces of fabric, so we started looking elsewhere.

Leave it to Amazon to come through once again with a very similar style for just $22. Oh, and if the fiery red hue isn't for you, the Zaful Ribbed Two-Piece Swimsuit comes in a handful of other fun colors, including color blocked variations, complete with those signature extra-long strings that you can criss cross and style any which way.

"Great quality, super cute, can't wait to wear it," raved one reviewer of the budget-friendly bikini.

And since this cheap-and-cheerful dupe begs for a bit more glamour, we're also snapping up a few of-the-moment accessories like a cool pair of cat-eye sunglasses and a slinky gold chain belt, a la Gaga.

And while you may be more accustomed to more sizable shades, allow this reviewer to make the case that smaller sunglass frames can deliver maximum impact. "OMG! I LOOK SO GOOD in these glasses even when the SUN ain't out. Wish I could show you the picture, but your girl was chilling too hard on Instagram. Let me sum this up...These glasses are sturdy, comfortable, and very affordable," she said.

And, sold.
