Laura Abernethy checks out the style at Victoria Square, Belfast

Becky Hill (22), student,  Dromore

Wore what? Boots, £30, New Look; jeans, £30, Zara; scarf, £20, Warehouse; cardigan, £12, t-shirt, £6, hat, £8, all Primark; bag, Louis Vuitton, present.

Why? My style is quite casual, but I like to be a little bit dressed up as well. I don’t like to wear trainers or anything like that.

Who? I like Blake Lively. I think she always looks great, but I don’t like Katie Price. Her clothes are always too tight and too small — it’s not my style.

Lora Chan (46), manager, Stranraer

Wore what? Coat, £60, dress, £30, boots, £40, all from Hong Kong.

Why? My style is quite natural and I like to feel comfortable. I like to wear what I want and choose something different every day.

Who? For my age, there aren't many celebrities who I look to for style inspiration. There are, though, lots of stars who are a bit too crazy and too revealing in their dress sense. I don't like that.

Alison Hill (50), charity director, Dromore

Wore what? Top, £13, Quiz; jacket, £25, Vero Moda; jeans, £50, Levi; boots, £20, New Look; handbag, £250, Michael Kors.

Why? I tend to dress "smart casual", and I think you don't have to be uncovered to look good.

Who? I really like Jennifer Aniston. I think she dresses well for her age. She's smart without being over-dressed.

Ruth Bakley (20), student, Coleraine

Wore what? Shoes, £50, Moda in Pelle; trousers, £30, Zara; top, £20, New Look; bag, £125, Guess.

Why? My style varies from day to day. It can be a bit more casual than what I'm wearing today, but I like to dress up when I can.

Who? I admire Olivia Palermo. Her style is lovely and I think she is very chic.

Lydia McFarland (18), student, Ballymena

Wore what? Boots, £25, Topshop; jeans, £30, River Island; blouse, £20, Topshop; coat, £50, Miss Selfridge; bag, £30, Accessorize.

Why? I'm not too dressy, so I try to keep it casual and comfortable without being too revealing.

Who? I really like Rita Ora's style. She is not like other celebrities and makes unusual choices.

Cairrai Groogan (20), student, Ballymena

Wore what? Blazer, £30, DV8; blouse, £9, Asda; necklace, £12, Primark; shoes, £25, bag, £25 and jeans, £20, all from New Look.

Why? I don't think I really have a particular style, but I try to go for a casual look. I don't really follow celebrities or anything. I just wear what I want.

Who? I think Kim Kardashian dresses up for people she is surrounded by, and it's far too much. I'm not a fan at all.

India Hunter (21), sales assistant, Antrim

Wore what? Shoes, £30, Zara; trousers, £35, top, £45, both Topshop; jacket, £18, bag, £25, both H&M.

Why? While I prefer formal style, I sell jeans for a living, so I need to strike a balance. I love brogues and patent accessories, they're my favourite.

Who? I really like Paloma Faith because she is slightly different. I think Kim Kardashian's style at the moment is horrific - it really doesn't suit her.
