10 Pieces with Hidden Talents

A sweater that’s also a dress. A dress that’s also a jacket. These pieces contain multitudes, just like you.

By Madeleine Kim

Have you ever gone to a friend’s house for a casual dinner and discovered that she’s secretly an amazing chef? What about a low-key karaoke outing that reveals a should-be popstar among your ranks? We all have a few hidden talents up our sleeves, so we figured: Shouldn’t the sleeves themselves have some special skills, too? Below are ten M.M. pieces with secret qualities that deserve to step into the spotlight.


The Gwynne Dress

Claim to fame: This trench-inspired mini dress is made from OrigamiTech, a machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant fabric that’s designed for travel.

Hidden talent: Doubling as a fashion-forward blazer. In other words, your carry-on just got even lighter.


The Yiyan Blazer

Claim to fame: This classic blazer is one of few pieces that’s truly timeless—it’ll never go out of style.

Hidden talent: You’d never know by looking at it, but the Yiyan has tons of stretch.


The Archie Pants

Claim to fame: These vegan leather pants epitomize Power Casual: They’re polished enough for the office but also ideal for your weekend wardrobe.

Hidden talent: Switching lengths in seconds, thanks to adjustable hems.


The Nejvi Top

Claim to fame: Asymmetrical draping at the waist gives the Nevi top an elegant, dynamic shape. Plus, it can easily be worn tucked or untucked.

Hidden talent: Repelling odor with help from Polygiene, an all-natural finish, so you can go even longer between washes.


The Sierra Shacket

Claim to fame: This layering-friendly jacket has the look and feel of leather, but it’s machine-washable and 100% vegan.

Hidden talent: Doubling as an edgy oversized shirt.



The Harlem Skirt

Claim to fame: Teaming up with jardigans to create chic office looks during the week—and partnering just as seamlessly with T-shirts to create elevated weekend outfits.

Hidden talent: Despite its sleek appearance, the Harlem skirt has the stretch and coziness of your favorite sweater.


The Molly Cardigan

Claim to fame: Instantly adding length and elegance to any look.

Hidden talent: Doubling as a cozy dress. We especially love it paired with the Beebe belt or the Wide Stitched belt.


The Nene Dress

Claim to fame: This silk slip dress has a gorgeous sheen that will turn heads at all your special occasions this fall.

Hidden talent: It’s machine-washable, so you can be the life of the party without worrying about spills or sweat.


The Joya Top

Claim to fame: This silk-jersey stunner has the versatility of a T-shirt, but its vibrant jewel tone and luxurious fabric give it an extra polished look.

Hidden talent: Lingerie snaps inside the shoulders mean you never have to worry about your top slipping down or your bra peeking out.

The Nia Jacket

Claim to fame: Our customers kept requesting a petite-friendly blazer made from OrigamiTech, and the result—our new Nia jacket—is already becoming a bestseller.
