Your Guide to Fall's Hottest Boots

Forget about your summer sandals... it's almost time for boot season! As the weather cools down, it is time to start thinking about all of the different boot designs we can wear in the fall!! We've listed our Top 3 favorite styles for the fall below!

One of the most recently popular styles of boots is definitely the riding boot! It is a traditional favorite that looks fabulous on everyone. These boots usually have a lower heel, so they are great for all-day wear!

The sexy-style boot usually boasts a stiletto heel and can be found in many different types of fabrics such as leather, suede, and satin. Over-the-knee or at the ankle, these boots are sure to impress!

The Western boot never seems to go out of style! They have been most-recently popular in the South as a way to dress up your gameday outfits or to give your date night apparel a fun twist!

We will be getting in more boots throughout the fall, so make sure you follow us on twitter (@shopmcauleys) to get the latest updates on our new boot arrivals!

Everything Old is New Again

Classy, vintage styles from fashion's past usually creep their way back into popular modern pieces. Take tweed for example; it used to be that women seen in tweed were viewed as matronly and frumpy. Now, if worn properly, it can look elegant and sophisticated while still being fun! I think people of by-gone eras of tweed just weren't sure how to wear it. Take a look at these poor groomsmen from the 70's:

One classic, iconic trend setter who actually wore tweed very well during her time was Jackie O. I don't think I have ever seen an ugly picture of her!

If you're thinking about trying to add some tweed to your wardrobe for the fall, don't be afraid, just don't overdo it! Add a simple tweed jacket to a plain skirt, or take a solid color top and add some flair with a tweed skirt like the one we just got in! You can view it by clicking on the picture below:

The Perfect Fall Manicure

Our manicure choices can often reveal a lot about our fashion styles and personalities. What better way to spruce up your look this season than with some fun nail color?!

We all know that red is a huge color in fall fashion this year! Well, red is also among the list of shades to make the nail polish trend as well. It's a timeless choice that is versatile with almost any look!

Metallic nail colors have officially been revived from the 80's!! These shades bring out the best of both worlds: they bring out the sparkle from your favorite jewelry, yet they give you some extra bling in your outfit without having to pile on the accessories! If you're a little hesitant about going the metallic route, just opt for a lighter hue! You won't be disappointed!

Greige is also another popular choice among nail colors these days. The shade is a perfect mix of grey and beige and can be seen in blends of taupe, brown, grey, and even purple! These colors work well with virtually every outfit during the day, while transitioning perfectly into night. Greige is super easy to wear and looks great against any skin tone!
