Our reporter Kerry McKittrick checks out the style at Victoria Square, Belfast.

Courtney McAuley (19), student, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £40, Zara; top, £5, Primark; leggings, £15, bag, £35, River Island; shoes, £20, Office.

Why? I love colour and pieces that are slightly different. I’m not afraid to stand out.

Who? Rihanna has a great sense of style and will push boundaries.

Adeline Lindberg (23), accountant, Belfast

Wore what? Hat, £20, JD Sports; dress, £20, NV; shoes, £40, Barry; bag, £300, Vivienne Westwood.

Why? My style is sporty with a feminine twist. Usually I’m casually dressed, but if I really like something then I will splash the cash.

Who? Kim Kardashian always looks well put together and wears figure-flattering outfits.

Lorraine McKenzie (27), personal assistant, Ballyclare

Wore what? Coat, £30, trousers, £25, shoes, £20, all New Look; T-shirt, £20, River Island; bag, £60, Carvela.

Why? I don’t suit anything too bright so I tend to go for neutral colours. I usually wear jeans and tops for work and like jumpsuits for an evening out.

Who? Kylie Jenner as she also wears neutral colours.

Melissa Mulholland (22), receptionist, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £40, Zara; top, £8, leggings, £3, Primark; shoes, £13, New Look; bag, £150, Michael Kors.

Issy Dawson (21), student, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £6, pinafore, £10, Primark; shoes, £50, Nike; bag, £50, Longchamps.

Why? I’m a bit of a tomboy and love teaming trainers with a dress. Glamour is good too, though, and I love leopard print.

Who? Both Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who are very cool.

Jessica Wolseley (24), barrister, Hillsborough

Wore what? Jacket, £100, Topshop; dress, £120, shoes, £79, Hobbs; bag, gift, Italian website.

Why? I like wearing dresses and prefer a sophisticated, gothic style.

Who? Like me, Angelina Jolie often wears black and looks really elegant.

Leon McHugh (33), employment consultant, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £15, River Island; bag, £35, Dune; sandals, £90, Lacoste.

Why? I’m a bargain hunter when I shop and only occasionally do I go for the upper end of the High Street — and I love dresses.

Who? Blake Lively really knows how to work old school glamour.

Klara Toogh (27), software engineer, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £25, Forever 21; jacket, £30, H&M; bag, £20, Zara; shoes, £13, New Look.
