Fran is a classic masculine-style blazer with a straight oversized silhouette. It is single-breasted with a two-button closure, wide shoulders and shoulder pads.

The notched collar is adorned with a single buttonhole on the lapel. On the left side, there is a single chest standing pocket welt. At each side of the jacket bodice, there is a working pocket welt completed with pocket flaps.

Fran also includes a traditional two-piece sleeve with vent and sham buttonholes. There is a vent on the back side. Fran is fully lined.
