Our reporter Kerry McKittrick checks out the style in Belfast city centre.

Cliodhna McCorry (20): Student, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £24, bag, £25, pumps, £35, River Island; jeans, £34, Topshop; sunglasses, £60, Ray-Ban.

Why? My style is comfy casual, so I prefer shirts with jeans. I don't like skirts or anything bodycon.

Who? Blake Lively has a lovely, understated style but Lucy Mecklenburgh's style is too tight and shows off too much.

Cara Murphy (21): Student nurse, Newcastle

Wore what? Jacket, £55, Topshop; top, £5, shoes, £10, Primark; trousers, £25, New Look; bag, £180, DKNY at Brown Thomas.

Why? I always go for neutral colours, nothing too loud. I would never wear neon or anything like it.

Who? Millie Mackintosh has a nice boho style but Lily Allen wears too many patterns and is too out there for me.

Maria Murtagh (30): Sales manager, Belfast

Wore what? Split-side T-shirt, £26, drape, £25, leggings, £22, River Island; Converse, £48, Office; bag, £220, DKNY.

Why? My style has a bit of an edge to it. I’m not a girly girl and wouldn’t wear lace or little dresses.

Who? Kate Moss is really well dressed with her casual boho style. Nicki Minaj is a bit too out there for me.

Claire McCloskey (33): Nurse, Londonderry

Wore what? Jacket, £49, Topshop; blouse, £10,

Primark; scarf, £10, Red (boutique), Limavady; jeans, £22, Dorothy Perkins; pumps, £22, Next.

Why? I like skinny jeans and jackets and I also like a flash of colour. I don’t wear clothes that are too revealing.

Who? Olivia Palermo has a nice casual style, but Katie Price always seems to wear clothes that are too revealing.

Rachel McNeilly (24): Retail supervisor, Ballyclare

Wore what? Top, £10, shoes, £25, New Look; skirt, £20, Oasis; bag, £20, Peacocks; sunglasses, £10, Australian boutique.

Why? My style is sophisticated but still young. I wouldn’t really wear jeans and T-shirts or tracksuits when I’m out and about.

Who? I quite like Kim Kardashian as she looks smart and suits neutral colours. Paloma Faith’s style is a little too different for me.
