In the midst of this strange time we are living through, there’s one thing we can be sure of: Autumn has arrived in Glasgow! The leaves are falling; the evenings are getting longer and there’s that lovely crisp feeling in the air. Anyone else excited?
With the changing of the season comes a need to refresh our wardrobes, so put away your light denim jackets and summer sandals – Princes Square has everything you need to enhance your Autumn aesthetic!
Whilst the summer months have been defined by the phrase, ‘all dressed up with nowhere to go’, the trends of Autumn 2020 reflect a sense of re-emergence. Think: chic comfort, creative layering and fearless footwear. These trends say, ‘we’re back and better than ever.’
An Autumn staple for the ages is the big coat. Whether oversized, shearling, trench or cape, a coat that is both chic and cosy is number one on our list. Trending in Autumn 2020 are leather and shearling, and our Princes Square retailers have some special pieces that are well worth the investment.
