Wore what? Dress, £39.99, White Stuff; bag, £20, River Island; shoes, gift, vintage market; hat, £8.99, Aldo.

Why? I like to be creative with my outfit choices and wear as much colour as possible.

Wore what? Shirt, £19.99, New Look; jeans, £36, Topshop; shoes, £20, Zara; bag, £20, River Island.

Why? I always dress up and I like my outfit to reflect the season, so when the sun's out I go for bright colours.

Sharon Fallon (36), financial administrator, Ballygowan

Wore what? Top, £28, trousers, £32, Oasis; shoes, £40, Clarks; bag, £20, Next.

Why? I like to dress up more for work because I'm normally running around after my kids in jeans and hoodies.

Who? I like Holly Willoughby's style because she's very realistic in what she wears and doesn't look like she's trying too hard.

  • Monthly spend £200

Claudia Maxwell (17), student, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £20, Miss Selfridge; culottes, £30, Zara; shoes, £25, bag, £20, New Look.

Why? Wearing a uniform to school everyday means I don't get to wear nice clothes during the week, so on days off I like to go all out.

Who? Cara Delevingne always looks so cool, so I check her Instagram all the time to see what she's been wearing.

  • Monthly spend £150

Carla Turner (20), bartender, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £13, trousers, £9, Primark; shoes, £25, River Island; bag, £13, Matalan.

Why? I love fashion, so I like to think outside the box with what I wear and I'm not afraid to try new styles.

Who? I like Beyonce's style, she would be quite out there with her clothes, but I can relate to a lot of her style choices.

  • Monthly spend £400

Noreen Kennedy (44), community fundraising manager, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £50, top, £20, trousers, £22, River Island; shoes, £20, Primark; bag, £10, Michael Kors.

Wore what? Top, £13, H&M; culottes, £30, Missguided; bag, £25, TK Maxx; shoes, £25, New Look.

Why? I always dress for the weather, which is usually coats and boots, so it's a nice look to wear something light when the weather allows.

Who? I follow Kendall Jenner on social media, and she always looks good. I take a lot of inspiration from her.

  • Monthly spend £100-150
