Let’s take a break for a while from over-the-knee and knee-high cognac boots, and turn our radar instead to ankle boots in cognac color. Or in Minka Kelly’s case, ankle boots in the shade of light cognac. Take a look:

This year’s Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive was seen leaving a salon in Beverly Hills, CA, looking urbane cool in lace-up, wedge, ankle boots, which she paired with a fringed and patterned gray open-front cardigan over a white top and skinny cargo pants. She finished the crush-worthy look with what appears to be an Alexander Wang Darcy Slouchy Hobo, and Ray-Ban aviators.
So, do you like Minka’s look? If you ask me, I actually love it. It’s perfectly styled for some casual R&R. The on-trend lace up, wedge, ankle boots are the perfect complement to the skinny jeans and the interesting sweater. Altogether, Minka Kelly here looked classically chic.
If you’re looking for a comfy pair of boots that add some height yet are easy on your feet, wedge ankle boots fit that category perfectly.
