Current Obsession: Billy Reid

On the latest episode of A Brad, Brad World (which is also one of my current obsessions. Love him so much), Brad visited designer Billy Reid in Florence, AL. I have heard his name in passing (magazines, fashion things, etc.), but never actually looked into his designs.

His womenswear designs are very flowy, airy and oversized, while his menswear looks are typical Southern gentleman like complete with bowtie, blazer and buttondown shirt.

Digging the cardi and felt hat. Minus the hat, that looks like a typical weekend look for me. This oversized blouse/”boyfriend shirt” trend is definitely working for me. Grab a really big shirt, throw over tights/leggings BUT then add a blazer and you’ve got yourself a totally acceptable work look. Remove said blazer and you have a casual look…and by casual I mean sit-on-the-couch-and-watch-The Bachelor look.

Oh. Hello.
