For such a small boutique, Bel Boutique carries a large range of casual and formal styles. Floral-print sundresses sell well, and ruffles are back. Bel’s biggest brands are Max and Cleo, followed by its little sister line, BCBGeneration. Customers also dig into Bel’s s supply of Big Buddha handbags.
Flip-flops, satin stilettos, strappy metallic pumps or sandals—Bel Boutique has them. This summer’s color is nude: nude sandals, nude peep-toe flats, nude wedges. Brands like Seychelles Footwear and Nina Footwear are all the rage, but Bel’s newest and most exciting line is Dolce Vita, known mostly for its edgy styles.
