What do Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Sofia Richie, and Hailey Bieber have in common (aside from their A-list status, of course)? They prefer to wear Frankies Bikinis while lounging beachside. The LA-based swimwear label launched in 2014 and has been setting trends and dressing celebrities ever since. Despite its popularity, the brand’s swimsuits are surprisingly affordable ($100 or less) and accessible, especially now that they’re available at Nordstrom.
Founder Francesca Aiello was inspired to create the line after failing to find “the perfect bikini” and deciding to create it on her own, per the Frankies Bikinis site. The high-quality fabrics and fashion-forward designs are certainly eye-catching, but also wearable. The goal is to create “bikinis that look great on everyone,” not just supermodels — and Nordstrom customers can attest to this, with some saying the suits “fit perfectly.”
If you prefer classic triangle styles — a la Jennifer Lopez in her white bikini — that you can mix and match with the bathing suits already at your disposal, try the Sky Triangle Bikini Top. Available in black, white, or blue, the suit’s material is “high quality and super soft,” according to shoppers. Pair it with the V-shaped Grace Bikini Bottoms that some have called “the best cheeky bottoms.”
A personal favorite? The one-of-a-kind Olivia One-Shoulder Metallic Bikini Top. The juxtaposition of pastel purple and metallic flicks coupled with the cool asymmetrical straps will get you noticed on the beach or the boardwalk.
