Charlotte Murphy (24), Retail assistant, Downpatrick

Wore what? Jacket, £45, dress, £38, both from Warehouse; hoodie, £5, Primark; bag, £20, Topshop; sandals, £18, ebay.

Why? My style is very colourful and vibrant and I try to be quirky and different. I would never wear dungarees — they give you massive hips.

Who? I love Fearne Cotton, as she has a nice quirky style, but Tulisa just looks tacky.

Monthly spend £100-200

Gemma Doran (21), Intern, Lurgan

Wore what? Jacket, £30, Forever 21; top, £8, H&M; jeans, £35, River Island; shoes, £35, Dorothy Perkins.

Why? Today I’m quite summery, as I like bright colours and I’m a fan of pink. I don’t like anything frumpy, though, or clothes that don’t suit.

Who? Nicole Scherzinger is classy, but Cheryl Cole has gone off the radar a bit — her style isn’t what it used to be.

Monthly spend £200

Ciara McAree (29), Nurse, London

Wore what? Dress, £25,and jacket, £35, both from Dunnes Stores; bag, present; shoes, £18, New Look.

Why? I’m very co-ordinated and quite casual and I do wear a lot of dresses. I think tracksuits should only really be worn outside of the gym.

Who? I love Holly Willoughby’s voluptuous style. I’m not big on Cara Delevingne, though, I don’t get her look at all.

Monthly spend £80

Lucy Williams (24), Teacher, London

Wore what? Dress, £25, Fashion Union; jacket, £85, Miss Selfridge; bag, £20, New Look; pumps, £10, Oasis.

Why? I go for floral patterns and dresses, and I also like to accessorize. I don’t like overly bright colours like neons, though.

Who? Rita Ora has a nice, modern style but I think all of the Kardashians are a bit too bland.

Monthly spend £70

Sarah Deeds (33), Medical receptionist, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £25, bag, £20 both from River Island; jacket, £30 New Look; boots, £25, Dorothy Perkins.

Why? My style is feminine and I wear a lot of |dresses and tights. I would try anything but I can’t wear all-in-one jumpsuits as I’m too short for them.

Who? I like former Miss Northern Ireland Tiffany Brien’s clothes and follow her on Facebook. |However, Miley Cyrus is really going off the rails.

Monthly spend £50
