Maybe it’s the Scorpio in me, but I’ve always loved fall. The end of summer means the beginning of crisp morning air, butternut-squash-centric meals, and multicolored leaves. But most of all, it means embracing fall fashion and all the deliciously cozy fabrics and saturated Earth tones that come with it.
Wondering where to start? We asked three M.M. stylists in different cities to build their ultimate fall outfits—and they delivered. Here are their picks, modeled by fellow M.M. employees.

Malaika, D.C. Stylist
“I love fall in D.C.—it’s the best season to be outdoors and explore the city, because the weather is so nice during the day. Tailored blazers and classic neutral pumps are part of everyday D.C. life. Try adding the Wren top in dijon, the Cobble Hill skirt in camel, and the Dora earrings in nutmeg to give your outfit a feminine and modern twist—different from the black and blue suits you see everywhere. This outfit is perfect for the D.C. woman who is embracing the change of season and letting her personal style shine in her work wardrobe. After work, remove the jacket and add some lipstick, and you’ll be all set for an eventful evening in the city.”
Chris, NYC Stylist
“Fall is all about comfort and style. I absolutely love when the weather starts to cool, because that means it’s time to bring out the sweaters. The Sharon top is one of our coziest pieces, but it’s also incredibly polished—all you need to do is add a statement earring like the Celia, and you’re all set for your next Zoom call or comfy commute to the office. Being born and raised in New York, I had to incorporate the Harrington leggings. They’re modern and chic, and they dress up the Sharon sweater and create balance in the outfit. Pair these pieces with the Nina boots, and you’re good to go!”
Kate, Chicago Stylist
“Fall in Chicago is all about versatile layers, and my go-to top is the lightweight, long-sleeved Elizabeth sweater, made from our ultra-smooth silk jersey. The Zhou culotte maintains comfort while adding shape and interest to your outfit. Finally, the O’Hara blazer in plaid knit offers a subtle print, warm tones, and a relaxed fit to soften the look. Plus, it doubles as the perfect outerwear layer when it’s not quite cold enough to break out your winter coat! Finish your outfit with the two-toned Mara earrings, which will beautifully complement the colors of your blazer.”
