Bethenny Frankel's style staples
Bethenny Frankel is one hot beach babe! The Skinnygirl founder (and mom of 2-year-old Bryn) always looks great whether she is dressed in a chic wrap dress or designer jeans. When she is on the beach, however, she flaunts her toned body in sexy bikinis and chic straw hats.
Frankel, 41, recently shared to Ok! Magazine that her beach essentials include Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, Clinique High Lengths mascara (no clumps!) and J.Crew flip flops.
As far as getting her bikini body, Frankel shares this surprising tip -- "I don't have an hour and a half to go to the yoga studio," she told Health. "I can do 15 minutes, go to a meeting, come back and do 15 more, then change the baby. It calms me down, which I definitely need!"
Recreate the look
Frankel is wearing the Luxe by Lisa Vogel bikini ($93 top, $48 bottoms) that is black with antique gold embellishments, stone detailing and embroidery. This bikini features hip-slimming side ties and slinky black fabric. If you would prefer a sexy one-piece swimsuit, you will love the hammered gold hardware in this Trina Turk Mediterranean solids cross one-piece (Piperlime, $109).
Your beach look would not be complete without a chic cover-up. Frankel's black bikini would look fab paired with the W Swimwear tie-dye tunic cover-up (Nordstrom, $74). The dropped-waist design and sexy arm cut-outs completes your beach look. A printed sarong, such as the Pareo sarong by Roberta Roller Rabbit (Piperlime, $55) is a fun and easy beach cover-up, as well.
Keep your face protected with a large-brimmed straw hat, such as this Columbia Sun Ridge straw hat from REI ($35). This hat is not only stylish, but the polyester straw material provides UPF 30 protection.
Pair your beach babe look with these Embellished wedge flip flops (Old Navy, $12) for a leg-lengthening look. These flip-flops can also be paired off the beach with white shorts and a black tank top. For a more casual look, these zebra printed flip flops from Old Navy ($4) are fun and flirty!
