Our reporter checks out the style in Belfast city centre and finds plenty of fashionable people out and about.
Shannon Carson (18)
Monthly spend £20
Wore what? Jacket, £25, H&M; top, £3, Primark; trousers, £45, and bag, £40, both from River Island; brogues, £35, Pull And Bear.
Why? I like to be a little bit different and edgy. I'm not too girly, though — I do wear dresses but I don't go overboard with pink. Nor would I wear a crop top — it reveals too much flesh.
Who? Mila Kunis has a nice, slightly edgy look but Kim Kardashian shows things off a bit too much for my liking.
Rebecca Smylie (20)
Monthly spend £200-300
Wore what? Coat, £70, Zara; bag, £1,400, Prada; jeans, £50, Jack Wills; wedges, £70, Office; top, £30, Topshop.
Why? My style is quite classic but feminine and I’m not afraid of a pink coat. I never really wear patterns, however, and you’d never see me in leopard print.
Who I love Kate Middleton’s conservative style, and I also like how Olivia Palermo dresses. I don’t like Jessie J’s style at all — it’s just too dark.
Rebecca Elliott (19)
Monthly spend £150
Wore what? Jacket, £40, and bag, £45, both from River Island; vest, £3, Primark; trousers, £15, Miss Selfridge; sandals, £20, Topshop.
Why? My style is colourful, but smart and I like nice jackets. I never wear neon colours as they look cheap.
Who? I like Fearne Cotton's style as she's a little bit different. I don't like Miley Cyrus's clothes as they're too revealing for my taste.
Cara McKnight (31)
Monthly spend £50-100
Concession manager, Belfast
Wore what? Dress, £20, jacket, £100, both from Topshop; bag, £40, Urban Outfitters; pumps, £4, Primark.
Why? My style is vintage, but quite girly — I don’t own any trousers. I really don’t like those wedge trainers as I don’t think they’re very flattering.
Who? I really like Dita Von Teese’s style. And I admire Taylor Swift, too. I’m not keen on the footballers wives’ look worn by Abbey Clancy.
Catherine Doherty (28)
Monthly spend £150
Laboratory assistant, Lisburn
Wore what? Tunic, £17, New Look; jeggings, £5, and shoes, £6, both from Primark; bag, Aldo, £30.
Why? My style is relaxed and colourful. I’m not keen on clothes that show off too much flesh though — I think girls shouldn’t bare all.
Who? Cheryl Cole looks really well and wears lots of colour. Kelly Osbourne takes things too far though and looks over the top.
