Bethenny Frankel’s Black and White Striped Blazer

Bethenny Frankel’s Black and White Striped Blazer with Fringe

Real Housewives of New York Season 9 Episode 6 Fashion

Once upon a time there was a young ambitious yet very, very poor girl living in her New York apartment. She was trying to get by giving free tastings of her tequila and lime at the local grocery store. Not even a Dean and Deluca. Today, that girl is a multi millionaire mogul and everything has changed- including her wardrobe. We were once able to look at Real Housewives of New York queen bee Bethenny Frankel and say “I want that” and for most of us, that could be done. But today is a whole different story.

Bethenny Frankel’s black and white fringed blazer is yet another piece in her seemingly bottomless barrel of Balmain clothing and leaves us as envious as ever. The blazer does what Balmain (and Bethenny’s jaw) is known for: a tuxedo style tie-wasted dress or blazer with a feminine flair but a masculine edge. Is anyone else starting to wonder if she’s hand picking donated items to dress for success? Just kidding, no one would ever get rid of this baby. Special shoutout to Catherine for asking about this gem! Great taste!

Keep it Real,

    What was the red lipstick she wore when she was wearing this blazer??? Dying to know the brand and color.
    Thank you!!

    Hi Vicky! Thanks for checking out BBH! She always has the perfect shade, right? We will try to get more specifics if possible, but we do know she’s a fan of certain brands- look for a new post about those tomorrow!!
    Keep it Real!

    I remember the backstory of Bethenny’s fashion too, and I really miss the days where if you couldn’t get exactly what she had, you could get something close. I would scour Ebay — which was one of her favorite haunts, but which she doesn’t seem to mention anymore — and I got the Michelle watch she used to wear at a fraction of the full cost. With everything being Balmain and Gucci anymore, that isn’t the case. I used to like that she said she didn’t care about whether something was this season or last, but lately, it looks like everything is right off the runway. Being the smart cookie she is, I have to believe she has a deal with Balmain for the time being. But I actually don’t care for many of the items she currently wears; I miss her old style, particularly in Seasons 2 & 3 of Housewives. Personally, I’m tired of the stark black-and-white jackets, from the moto jacket in S7, to the colorblocked one in S8, to this fringy one in S9. Not that I could afford any of them, anyway.
