With sweater-weather on the horizon, we've been itching to break out our favorite fall staples, from cozy leggings to our beloved fall boots. And with western style being pretty trendy recently, now is the perfect time to add a bit of cowboy flare to your wardrobe. When it comes to embodying the spirit of the wild, wild West, cowboy boots are one of the most versatile ways to go about it.

TikTok (where almost all of the biggest fashion trends right now originate) is also a fan of the style. Videos featuring the #cowboyboots tag have more than 424 million collective views on the app. According to Google Trends, the search for "cowboy boots" is on the rise as fall approaches, with specific terms like "tall black cowboy boots" seeing a 140 percent spike.

Though, the boots can we worn year-round with jeans, or skirts and dresses with a longer hemline, they even can be seen poolside with a swimsuit. The options for styling are practically endless.

"Cowboy boots are an American classic," style expert Amy E. Goodman said of the trend. "They cycle in, in summer, because they really are a statement piece that goes perfectly with minimalist and simple outfits. When you’re running out the door and you want to keep it breezy and cool, they’re the perfect foot accessory."

If going with a spring or summer look, Goodman recommends wearing mid-calf or tall versions with shorts and a button-down. "Another thing that I love this time of year [for warmer weather] are flowy dresses, so pairing the cowboy boots with an amazing flowy dress or a flowy skirt," she said. To really show the boots off, wear a skirt or dress with a hem that's a bit higher than the top of the boots or opt for something with a slit along the side, she added.

For when the weather is turning cooler, we simply can't wait to throw on a pair of these with our favorite jeans and sweater. Or like Goodman suggested, we'll still be rocking these with a flowy dress — with an added pair of tights.
