It's time to swap out bikinis for boots. When it comes to fall fashion, it's easy to resort to the tried-and-true sweater and jeans combo, but if you're looking to spice up your style this season, we've rounded up the trends you'll be seeing on the streets.

TODAY style expert Lilliana Vazquez stopped by with four fall looks she recommends trying before the leaves change!

Updated Cowboy Boots

If you're looking to kick your shoe game up a notch, updated cowboy boots are the way to go. These booties combine familiar, western-inspired shapes with modern materials and fun details. We can't get enough of this new pair from Sam Edelman. If you're looking to spend a little less, these highly rated ankle booties from Macy's are only $42.

Steve Madden Cafe Boots, $130, Nordstrom

Pointed-Toe Faux Suede Booties, $35, Forever 21

Vazquez also recommended this fringed pair for a fun twist on the theme.

Red Rules

"Tomato red" is Vazquez's choice for a bold pop of color this fall. The food-inspired hue suits all skin tones and makes a big statement! Wear one statement making piece, or rock red from head to toe! Try this $26 pair of trousers for a work appropriate look.

Rib Crew Neck Jumper, $55, Topshop

Cemi Ceri Palazzo Pants, $30, Amazon

Return of Leopard Print

If the thought of animal prints conjures up images of gaudy leopard print in unflattering silhouettes, think again! This season is all about a sophisticated, tonal take on the pattern.

High Neck Sweater, $29, ASOS

Leopard Print Midi Skirt, $89, & Other Stories

Macy's has a similar skirt for only $20 - and we're obsessed!

Little Dress on the Prairie

Prairie dresses are the perfect complement to the western boot trend. The long sleeves and full length skirt keep this style appropriate for colder temperatures. Pair it with tall suede boots to keep the style looking current and avoid any costume comparisons.

Vero Moda Floral Dress, $76, ASOS

Patchwork Print Dress, $119, Zara
