“The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.” – Clairee Belcher, Steel Magnolias

With snow on the ground and likely more still on the way, it is hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. But it is! That is why I have put together the first ever “Elle Squared Spring Style Guide” to highlight the latest styles for the coming season.

Given my renewed promise to you, my savvy and loyal clientele, who have made Elle Squared the presence it is as a neighborhood fashion forward boutique, we remain committed to bringing you our latest finds at the same affordable prices you have always expected.

Here are 10 of my personal favorites.

1. Statement earrings. Do you want to make a statement? Depending on what you are trying to say, incorporate beads, long strands of gold, or silver to top off a maxi dress or liven up a tee and jeans, giving the look an expected punch.


2. Beach bags. Are you structured or flexible? Get ready to break out of your routine and feel the sand between your toes with the latest designs in beach bags. Choose from lightweight totes, straw, and mesh carryalls, each with matching accessories to keep all of your odds and ends at your fingertips from sunup to sundown.


3. Spring totes. Are you classic or edgy? Practical or filled with whimsy? Whichever you are, on whatever day, we have the look for you. City, beach, and somewhere in between, our totes will complete any look while keeping all of a girl’s best goodies right at her side.


4. Water bottles. Do you want to be fun or share the fun? A savvy lady always has a water bottle by her side in her bag or tote. Our new “Not Vodka” bottles, which come in a variety of bright colors and patterns, are more than a bottle. They are a statement. So make one today, for yourself and girlfriends and gift one or three today while supplies last.


5. Long beaded necklace. Are you mono or multi? Pastel or primary? Our newest beaded necklaces from our very own Neo-Gypsy and Cheryl DeFoe will take any look from ordinary to extraordinary, and from day to night in seconds. Wrap yourself in one-of-a-kind strands from far away lands, and become the conversation starter at your next get-together.


6. Wraps and ponchos. Do you want to show it off or cover it up? With our newest ponchos, you can do both at once – complete your style with a new twist on a classic style. For an update on this classic look, check out our tie-dyed patterns from Missoni in vibrant spring colors. These trendy finds will make welcome additions to any wardrobe.


7. Hats. Are you “Holy,” an “American Girl?” or “Grateful”? Then we have a trucker hat that is just right for you. Shout out your mantra to the world. Choose from your favorite sayings and “Believe” you will make a statement when you do.


8. Scarves. Lightweight and colorful, scarves enhance any ensemble. Spring into action with pom-pom hand-dyed scarves or more traditional ones and add a little of the unexpected to the expected.


9. Handbags. No, it is not your mother’s purse but feminine is in again. Whether you choose a structured handbag reminiscent of Hollywood’s most iconic leading ladies, a more modern cross-body style, or wristlet (great for a night out on the town, festival, or concert), it is time to reconnect with your inner star.


10. Anklets. After you decorate your wrists, remember your ankles. Crafted metals intertwined with beads from around the world will enhance any look, from a ship’s deck to a rooftop one.
