GABRIELLA MCNEVIN

  • 25 > Brookline

  • > “My mom grew up in El Paso and I like spicy colors,” says McNevin. It’s not everyone who would pair a turquoise top (from Zara) and geometric necklace (a gift from her sister) with red ballet flats (from Nordstrom Rack).

  • > Even McNevin’s “neutral” tones are unusual, as in the cognac skinny jeans (from H&M) and olive green woven bag (a gift). “I like mixing lots of different colors,” says the operations administrator of the Martin Lawrence Gallery.

  • > The van Gogh-like sunflower (from an outdoor market) is McNevin’s way of hanging on to

  • summer.

  • Favorite Stores Zara, H&M, Anthropologie

JODI A. WOLIN

  • 42 > North End

  • > Color blocking remains a huge trend this fall, with vertical patterning the most figure-flattering. Wolin couldn’t do better than this slimming Calvin Klein hot-pink-on-black sheath (from Lord & Taylor).

  • > As director of development at the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, Wolin attends many events requiring office-to-evening attire, like this elegant dress, capacious black patent bag (a gift), and comfortable peep-toe wedge heels (from Lord & Taylor).

  • > Fanciful flourishes are a Wolin specialty. The beguiling fascinator (from London’s Hats by Cressida on Etsy) is a glam delight.

  • Favorite Stores Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Designers Circus

YEMI SEKONI

  • 44 > Cranston, Rhode Island

  • > As the owner of Donahue Models & Talent in Rhode Island, Sekoni feels she can have more fun with her work outfits than most people, starting with this sheer “cold shoulder” black blouse with faux leather collar (from T.J. Maxx).

  • > Though ladylike pencil skirts are hot this season, Sekoni kicks it up a notch with this bold animal print bought at Filene’s Basement “at least 10 years ago.”

  • > Red patent high heels and a hot pink quilted iPad case (both from DSW) are unusual accessory color choices with a busy black/tan leopard print. “I like a pop of color with whatever I’m wearing.”

  • Favorite StoresT.J. Maxx, Forever 21, and J.C. Penney for “great-fitting dresses by Bisou Bisou
