#OOTD: Winter Style (With A Side of Spring)

It may only be January, but here in Los Angeles, Spring has sprung.  Although the afternoons are boiling, the mornings and evenings still have that crisp Winter chill.  Never fear, though-- Francis is here to show you how to find a functional (and fashionable!) balance as the seasons fade.

First things first, start off your outfit with a crisp shirt.  Franny Max keeps it interesting with a pattered button down with splashes of Spring colors.  Keeping with this feeling, he pairs this top with a light teal cotton blazer - heavy enough to keep out the early morning wind, yet light enough to keep you from feeling weighed down in the mid-day heat wave.  

Sneakers and cuffs so fresh they glow.

Finish the outfit off with a smart pair of trousers- like these coated skinny cut jeans from Zara- and the incredibly breathable New Balance shoes (perfect for those always on the go!)
