Our intrepid reporter Joanne Sweeney checks out all the latest styles and trends on display among the dedicated followers of fashion at Victoria Square.

Kathryn Cash (22), Office worker, Newtownabbey - Monthly spend £30-50

Wore what? Coat, £60, H&M; skirt, £15, sweater, £15, both from New Look; boots, £70, Luna; bag, £50,Bessie.

Why? I always like to look dressed when I’m out and about and don’t like to be too casual, so dresses and skirts figure a lot in my style.

Who? Michelle Keegan, because she always looks groomed and feminine. You never see her too dressed down.

Megan Tumelty (21), PR manager, Belfast - Monthly spend £250

Wore what? Coat, £20, Miss Glam; scarf, £10, New Look; sweater dress, £25, Topshop; jeans, £45, Zara; shoes, £10, Primark; bag, £25, New Look.

Why? I like to make coats or jackets my key statement piece for an overall look, but can be very dressed down on occasions with hoodies and skinny jeans with boots.

Who? Kendall Jenner looks absolutely gorgeous no matter what she wears and she likes to wear some great directional styles.

Emily Kielthy (22) student, Wexford - Monthly spend £200

Wore what? Jacket, £75, necklace, £6 in sale, striped top, £5, skirt, £15, all from Topshop; boots, £80, Clarks; bag, gift, Louis Vuitton.

Why? As a student I like to dress well and keep up with the fashion. I do probably spend too much each month, though.

Who? I don't have one particular favourite celeb look, but I like to scan the fashion magazines to get ideas for key fashion trends and how to put them together.

Wore what? Coat, £20, Miss Glam; scarf, £10, New Look; sweater dress, £25, Topshop; jeans, £45, Zara; shoes, £10, Primark; bag, £25, New Look.

Why? I’m always buying clothes, nearly every weekend in fact, as I like to look current and smart. Even when I wear jeans, I would always dress my look up with heels.

Who? Cheryl Fernandez-Versini because of her whole image — her hair, clothes and make-up. She really knows how to glam up but can keep it really cool when she dresses down.

Wore what? Dress, £150, Jaeger; scarf, £70, Christmas fair; shoes, £40, Kurt Geiger; Fendi bag, £200, Mencap charity auction.

Why? I normally live in LK Bennett as it’s my favourite brand and perfect for workwear. But I can be very casually dressed when I’m out in the garden or doing my other outdoor interests.

Who? The late Princess Diana was always one to watch when it came to style, particularly in her later years.

Why? I’m a definite trend follower and I find that my style is influenced by my job as I work with H&M.

Who? I like Caroline Flack, because she knows how to mix high street fashion with designer labels to

create a look that’s all hers.

Pauline Scott (36), boutique manager, Belfast - Monthly spend £100

Wore what? Dress, £59 in sale, shoes, £55, coat, £99, bag, £149, all from Hobbs.

Why? I do like modern styles but I don't follow every trend. I tend to dress very smartly for work every day, and I like to be smart-casual in my downtime.

Who? Abby Clancy always looks stunning, whether she's on the red carpet or out with her children and husband. She looks sexy but never trashy.
