Our reporter Rachel Dean checks out all the style in Belfast city centre.

Rachel McCorry (24), marketing assistant, Lurgan

Wore what? Dress, £9, Dunnes Stores; jacket, £48, Topshop; shoes, gift, Kurt Geiger; bag, £60, Longchamp.

Why? I wear a lot of black but I like to break it up a little with prints or a bright colour.

Who? Daisy Lowe’s style brings back old fashion trends and I really love that.

Katherine Campbell (27), marketing assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £50, Warehouse; shoes, £20, Peacocks.

Why? My style is very minimalistic but sometimes I like to change it up a bit with some pretty patterns and prints. I would say my look is usually quite casual.

Who? Olivia Palermo’s fashion sense is both sophisticated and classy.

Lauraine Mollison (39), beauty counter manager, Londonderry

Wore what? Top, £40, River Island; skirt, £40, necklace, £12, both Topshop; shoes, £50, Monsoon; bag, gift, Clarkes.

Why? I would say my style is always very feminine and I’m always wearing skirts or dresses. My look is often inspired by 1950’s style, too.

Who? Holly Willoughby has a classic feminine look. She dresses really well for her figure.

Ciara Hoddson (18), barmaid, Lancaster

Wore what? Top, £15, H&M; jacket, £35, New Look; jeans, £45, boots, £45, both Topshop.

Why? I would say my style is casual but smart. I only really get dressed up for nights out and special occasions.

Who? I love how understated Kendall Jenner’s look is. Even in the simplest outfit, she looks amazing.

Rebecca Atkinson (17), student, Templepatrick

Wore what? Top, £8, River Island; jacket, £12, Forever 21; jeans, £15, DV8; boots, £13, Primark; bag, gift, Belfast Satchel Company.

Why? My style is quite relaxed with a mixture of brighter colours. I dress to suit my personality.

Who? No matter what Selena Gomez wears she always looks stunning. Her glam look is my favourite.

Carol Orchin (50), payroll supervisor, Carrickfergus

Wore what? Top, £25, trousers, £25, both TK Maxx; cardigan, £15, boutique in Spain; shoes, £30, Marco Tozzi; bag, £300, Michael Kors.

Why? I like to dress differently from everyone else so I usually avoid shopping at department stores. I prefer a quirky style that suits my body shape.

Who? Cameron Diaz always looks great and I like her offbeat style. She dresses perfectly for her age.

Donna Adams (29), classroom assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £5, jacket, £32, jeans, £10, shoes, £16, all New Look; bag, £7, Primark.

Why? My look is always very casual. I love including autumnal colours in my outfits, especially khaki and burgundy.

Who? I love Kylie Jenner because she is more experimental with fashion than the rest of her family. Her style is ‘out there’ and eye-catching.

Kate Fahy (20), student, Tyrone

Wore what? Dress, £45, shoes, £65, both Topshop; blazer, £60, River Island; bag, £330, Michael Kors.

Why? I would describe my look as sophisticated and smart. I think this style suits me best.

Who? I adore Blake Lively’s style because it’s so smart and clean cut. She wears a lot of flared trousers and skirts which I love.
