With The Real Housewives of New York starting its new season this week, Bethenny Frankel will once again be showing off her great style and fun personality each Thursday evening. A trained natural foods chef, author, television star, and weekly contributor in many health and fitness magazines, Bethenny’s schedule seems incredibly busy and fulfilling. However, at thirty nine, she is gearing up for the most important moment of her life: becoming a mother. Expecting her first child in June with fiancé Jason Hoppy, Bethenny looks happy and healthy. As her baby bump grows, I cannot help but notice her great maternity style. From cute work out gear to gorgeous dresses, her pregnancy looks combine comfort with fashion. She knows how to rock that baby bump!
Staying active during pregnancy is important, and Bethenny does it in style. She combines a supportive tank top embellished with a cute logo on the front with a great pair of stretch workout pants. A top like this is great, as it will stretch to fit your changing body shape. Longer tank tops provide extra belly coverage. Wide shoulder straps or a t-shirt design is a good idea, since it will provide more bust support. For a similar look try the Boy or Girl Tank from Due and Sprout. A great pair of stretch work out pants is a good investment for expectant mothers. Whether worn for a walk or running errands, soft, stretchy pants will keep you feeling comfortable and looking stylish throughout your day. 1 in the Oven makes their Super Soft Ruched Foldover Pant, perfect for during and after pregnancy.
In January, Bethenny was spotted in Miami looking every bit the fashionable expectant mother. Cute black leggings and a flowing red top looked stylish yet comfortable. Although Bethenny paired her outfit with a gorgeous wool coat and scarf, this look is adaptable to the upcoming warm weather by simply leaving the coat at home. Black leggings, such as Olian’s Maternity Leggings, are stretchy and comfortable. They allow room for the belly to expand while being trendy and stylish. When paired with a flowing top, the tightness of the leggings is balanced out by the looseness of the shirt. The Split Sleeve Bubble Maternity Top from Olian creates a beautiful shape while recreating the flowing shape. This is a great day looked when paired with flats and a more casual t-shirt, but can easily be worn at night with a longer embellished tank top and a cute blazer.
One of my favorite looks of Bethenny’s is the red dress she wore to the Heart Truth Show this past month to kick off Fashion Week. Strutting the runway in a ruched knee length dress, she looked fit, trendy, and happily pregnant. One gorgeous aspect of this dress is the detailed neckline. With a wide, one-shoulder strap, a beautiful and interesting frame is created for the face. Ruching on a dress is not only trendy, it is also figure flattering. It camouflages any bloating you may feel while creating a gorgeous figure. If you are ready to show off your baby bump, this is a pretty and trendy way to do it.
Throughout her pregnancy Bethenny has shown off her signature pregnancy style. Whether working out or walking the runway, she wears clothes that are both figure flattering and comfortable. By choosing pieces which are comfortable yet flatter your shape, you will look and feel great throughout the day. With the new season of The Real Housewives of New York starting this week, I am hoping to see some of Bethenny’s great maternity style on display!
