Billy Reid FW2012 collection looks

Billy Reid has been consistently putting out some of the most understated, yet sharp menswear pieces for sometime now.

But this fall I'm especially drawn to his neat, dude-inspired silhouettes created for us women.

Take those leather jackets, for instance.

Slightly rumpled in one iteration and extremely tailored in the other, each piece could work as the perfect topper for any late-fall look; just finish it off with equally well-constructed separates, and you're good to go.

It's obvious that Reid has a way with a proper, mannish look. Yet one has to admit that he does know a thing or two about feminine charms. 

That floral, calf-length pencil skirt? 

It's just begging to be worn - with tights, of course - right through to next Spring...
