Rachel Dean checks out the style at Victoria Square, Belfast.

Lucy Boe (26), sales assistant, Lisburn

Wore what? Dress, £40, shoes, £12, bag, £5, all Topshop.

Why? My style is very colourful. I buy a lot of high street stuff, so I would say my look is very modern, too.

Who? I love Lana Del Rey’s style because it’s so fun and quirky.

Monthly spend: £50-60

Courtney Brett (19), student, Glengormley

Wore what? Shirt, £20, shoes, £25, both Pull and Bear; skirt, £45, M&S; bag, £150, Fossil.

Why? My style is quirky and sometimes quite vintage. I like my look to be interesting.

Who? I love Ellie Goulding’s look because she goes against fashion trends and just does her own thing.

Monthly spend: £100-150

Laura Campbell (25), retail supervisor, Annalong

Wore what? Top, £25, shoes, £35, both Dorothy Perkins; jeans, £29, scarf, £10, both Vila; bag, £380, Michael Kors.

Why? I’d say my look is always current because I work in retail and have to keep track of changes in fashion. I wear neutral colours instead of anything too bold.

Who? I love Laura Whitmore’s style — it’s a little bit edgy and she suits everything she wears.

Monthly spend: £150

Saira Sorayyah (21), student, Manchester

Wore what? Top, £8, H&M; jacket, £30, Miss Selfridge; jeans, £12, Primark; boots, £35, New Look; bag, £40, TK Maxx.

Why? I go for looks that are simple and compliment my shape. I wear a lot of block colours rather than patterns and prints.

Who? I really love Monica Rose’s fashion sense because it’s just so bold.

Monthly spend: £50

Claire Telford (42), air stewardess, Ballymena

Wore what? Top, £24.99, jeans, £39.99, both Zara; boots, £130, Tommy Hilfiger; bag, £200, Louis Vuitton.

Why? I don’t really follow fashion trends, I just do my own thing and wear what I feel comfortable in.

Who? Mollie King from the Saturdays has a very feminine look. Her style is fresh.

Monthly spend: £300-400

Gemma Walsh (27), physiotherapist, Lisburn

Wore what? Top, £25, cardigan, £45, both River Island; jacket, £25, bag, £16, both New Look; jeans, £40, Topshop; boots, £100, Kurt Geiger.

Why? I would describe my style as very feminine. I go for lighter colours rather than dark colours which would make my look dull.

Who? Olivia Palermo is gorgeous. She has such a way with fashion — everything she puts together looks so good.

Monthly spend: £100

Mary-Nora Devine (27), sales assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £6, jeans, £26, both Matalan; jacket, £5, Primark; shoes, £13, New Look.

Why? My style always changes. My looks vary from quite casual to very dressy.

Who? Kylie Jenner’s look is unique to her. I love how she’s always changing her hair to suit, too. I think she dresses really well for her figure.

Monthly spend: £200

Claire Higgins (28), accountant, Desertmartin

Wore what? Top, £15, Oasis; skirt, £30, River Island; shoes, £65, Office; bag, £15, New Look.

Why? I go for a simple, modest look. I don’t like anything too extravagant.

Who? Emma Watson is a perfect example of modest fashion. Her style is quite preppy as well, which really suits her.

Monthly spend: £50
