Hi, everyone. I'm Tim Gunn and I'm here at the Marie Claire offices to talk to you about fall trends. Classics are very on trend this season and I love the classics. And people want items in their closet that have staying power. So, we have the classic blazer. We have the pea coat. We have the trench coat. We have the classic dress pants. These are wonderful items that you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe and they will never fail you. Items of apparel that have what a volume or very own trends this season. We have big, wide-legged pants. You have to be very careful though to pair those pants with something very fitted on top. You want counterpoint. We also have great, big, voluminous coats. We have big, voluminous capes that are very, very in this season. Mixed prints are on trend this fall. And I have to tell you, I love them. And you can tell from how I'm dressed that I love to work with them. What's very important is scale. The prints need to be of different scales. And you do want to have some color relationships. It depends upon what the point of departure for the color is. Be bold. Be brave. Step out. It's a way of really punching up your wardrobe and you'll look fantastic. And I don't look so bad, do I? I think this looks pretty good.
