low-rise jeans

Malin Akerman was spotted going out for lunch in Studio City, Los Angeles.

She wore a pair of low waisted slim bootcut jeans in a lighter blue vintage wash, featuring rips at the knees with frayed threads, but no other distressing.

She teamed her jeans with a beige satin borrowed-from-the-guys vest, and pointy suede booties.

It is not often that we see bootcut jeans out there, but we really like the wash and style of Malin’s jeans, especially since these are in a slim style, almost like a straight leg. The cut is very well executed, as you can see by the small inseam right on the inside of the leg above the knee.

I have to admit that I am not really a fan of bootcut jeans, but seeing how great they look here on Malin I’m definitely getting into the mood.

Check out some slim bootcut jeans from Citizens of Humanity, Silver Jeans, and Hudson.
