The fall season is upon us, which means it's almost the perfect climate for wearing boots. Some Coloradans aren't wasting any time, jumping the gun early, and we're not upset about it. One of these trendsetters is Angie Hoss, a UCCS student who we spotted along the 16th Street Mall strutting in cowboy boots. Read here to learn her favorite accessory, where she shops, and what her style mantra is.

Hoss made these colorful friendship bracelets herself and wears them with a red manicure here.
This funky necklace was a Forever 21 find for Hoss, who loves the store.
"Cowboy boots are my favorite thing to wear in the whole world," says Hoss who rocks them with shorts during the hot months.
Style analysis: While summer is winding down, the temperature is still hot and limiting. Hoss displays how to wear cowboy boots in the summertime without breaking a sweat: with jean shorts and layered tanks. This simple look allows her accessories to shine: the handmade bracelets, whimsical necklace and earrings, and brown belt and boots. This look is informed by Hoss' self-inspiration and go with the flow attitude.
