After months of searching for the perfect boyfriend, I think I can proudly say that I found “the one”. He is the perfect balance of casual yet polished, masculine yet feminine, and relaxed yet skinny. Just what I was looking for in a perfect boyfriend….as in my boyfriend JEANS!

I’ve been a long time fan of boyfriend jeans, as they are the most comfortable style to wear, but have always struggled in finding a pair that fit me just right.  You don’t want to take things too literally and wear a pair that is so loose that it actually looks like you have your boyfriend’s jeans, nor do you want a pair that is so slim that it just looks like loose skinnys. As we all know finding that perfect balance, in anything in life, is quite difficult! But it was the day that I met Josef, I mean Josefina ,that I knew I finally found “the one”. The Josephina Skinny Boyfriend jean is roomy through the hips and thigh and tapers through the leg. Perfectly loose on top, and skinny on the bottom.  And because boyfriend jeans are associated with more casual wear I love juxtaposing the look by  pairing it with a glamorous tweed jacket.

It’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner, but around this time of year I like to do what you call “Spring cleaning” along with stocking up on my basics. 7 For All Mankind’s spring collection is a good summary  of everything that I need for this spring-  a pair of skinnys, boyfriends, flares,  a denim jacket, and denim shorts. And just in case you need help styling your denim here is the much anticipated Coast To Coast video. As i’m in NY as much as I am in LA, I find that my style transforms depending on what city i’m in. I created this video in inspiration of 2 of my favorite cities- LA & NY. Which Coast {style} do you prefer?

It’s been  incredibly exciting working with 7 For All Mankind for the past few months, and I hope you guys have enjoyed the video series as much as I did making them with my team. Just in case you missed out here is  Episode 1  & Episode 2. Make sure you catch up on all 3 episodes (1 , 2, 3 ) , and let me know which one was your fave!

    Hi Chriselle,

    I love this look and created a drawing of it! Hope you can check it out! :)


  • Lydia says:

    Love this look! I’ve always wanted to try boyfriend jeans but scared of it looking like I’ve put on some weight, hence the baggy jeans. I think picking the right jeans plays a huge part.

    This is inspirational. Thanks! :)


    • Chriselle says:

      Lydia, It is very tricky but I’ve found with these I don’t have that issue. That’s why I’m so glad I found them. I’m happy you found this inspirational. <3

  • The perfect polished look with jeans!!! I love how these boyfriend fit you, I would prefer them a little looser myself, but it’s true that it wouldn’t look so elegant!!!!

  • natalie says:

    gorgeous outfit!
    i really really want a pair

  • Claire says:

    Love the tweed jacket on you! Looove it <3

    Love, Claire from Vancouver, Canada.

  • I like your paring a tweed with a casual outfit. The entire ensemble is on-point. Also, thanks for the remind to spring clean.

  • Andrea says:

    Your handbag! I must have it! Who is the designer?

  • Zijun says:

    love how you paired the boyfriend jean with a tweed jacket!
    Spring is indeed around the corner! Today is Chinese New Year, we also call it “Spring Festival”, so happy spring festival Chriselle!

  • Christine says:

    Love this shoot!

  • Amy says:

    Where is that jacket from? I have been trying to find one from a brand that is either sold in or ships to Australia.

  • 33 says:

    I really like the highlights you did to your hair.

    Thanks for the inspiration in this outfit. Who doesn’t have a pair of boyfriend, lady pumps, slouchy t, structured bag? Tweed jacket is a maybe but I bet most self proclaimed fashionista will have one or two in the closet (I have 2, a short and a cropped). :-)

  • Vivian says:

    Loving the ruffled bed-head you’re sporting here Chriselle!



  • Yvette Hampton says:

    Love the style. Could a plus size person were this style as well?

  • Maria says:

    Hello, I love your blog, and your looks. where is the jacket? thanks

  • Jessica Rose says:

    Misleading title there……I wasn’t expecting to see a skinny man!! 😉


  • I love this outfit and the video! <3

    I feel that my style depends on my mood and changes really a lot! So, sometimes it more of a comfy LA style, sometimes it's more sophisticated 😉


    • Chriselle says:

      Alina thanks for watching the video and commenting on this post! I understand how you feel about your outfit depending on your mood I completely agree!

  • Natali says:

    Loving your outfit! Great blazer and jeans!


  • I have last year’s wash on the skinny boyfriend by 7! My favorite too. It’s not as slouchy as a regular boyfriend but has the same silhouette. You look fantastic and I love the way you styled this look!



  • had to pin this! I always struggle with brunch outfits and this seems pretty perfect and fitting… now onto the search for the perfect boyfriend… jeans :) xx


  • Leesa says:

    great look! And I know exactly what you’re talking about! I have trouble finding the perfect boyfriend jeans as well…

  • Arielle says:

    I just bought my first pair of Josefinas as well and absolutely fell in love, even though my regular size is slightly too large and I should have sized down. Oh well, now I don’t need to worry about shrinking them at least! I love how you paired it with the tweed jacket, it makes the jeans look so much more feminine!
