Shop White Suiting Inspired by Billy Reid's Spring 2013 Collection

I'm a sucker for sharp suiting, especially when it rings of a certain kind of '70s woman: Lauren Hutton as the Charlie girl, or Faye Dunaway in Network. Billy Reid gave his Spring 2013 collection that circa-1976 tinge, with lots of white—wrap dresses, double-breasted blazers—and shiny, bouncy, deep side-parted hair that made me wish I hadn't recently chopped mine off into a bob. But while I can't really recreate the hairstyle just now, I can buy a cool white suit. Click through to see my favorite looks from Billy Reid's show, and shop similar items available online now.

Wear it with ankle boots in the fall, strappy pumps in the spring.
