With the labyrinthine streets around Brick Lane and the stylish Redchurch Street, Shoreditch stands as a magnetic hub for aficionados of vintage finds, exclusive boutiques, and independent high-end retailers. 

Walking through the dynamic corner of East London it's hard to miss its assortment of fashionable locals.

As the capital transitions into winter, many in the trendy district seem to be featuring a kaleidoscope of inspirations in their looks from heavy textures and distressed designs to more ballet influences.

I spoke to a few of Shoreditch stylish individuals to see what they were wearing and what they think might be the next big trends in the ever-evolving world of fashion.

Vintage store assistant Holly, 21, said: “I’m wearing a vintage tartan kilt, big black boots and just a pain grey sweater. I think some things that could be trending are heavier materials, anything wool or mohair. Maybe even a continued ballet core, tutu’s and more feminine influences.”

Another vintage store assistant, 24-year-old Josh - who was wearing a vintage Miami T-shirt, COS jeans and Diesel shoes - said: "I think some stuff right now that’s in is anything distressed or with assymetrical designs.”

Passerby Rebecca, 27, said: “Today I’m wearing a Bella Freud coat, a Margaret Howell jumper, a Toast skirt and trainers of which I can’t remember the brand. And I don’t know what could be trending, but maybe pleated skirts? To be honest, I think everyone should just wear what they want to wear. I think that’s what the trend should be.”

Shopper Annie, 24 said: “I’m wearing this jacket and top borrowed from my friend, my denim skirt is from Paris, and just these horse riding boots, and this GANNI bag.

"As for trends, I’m not really sure but maybe fur jackets? The really, really furry coats with a furry hood.”

Annie's friend Jasmin, 23, said: “So my black jacket is from Paris, this white cargo skirt is from my friend Annie - sharing is caring. And my trainers are from the charity shop...I’m not sure on the next trend either but potentially headscarves?”
