Our reporter checks out the style in Belfast city centre and finds plenty of stylish people out and about.

Rachael Andrews (19)

Retail assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Coat, £115, Mango; shirt, £10, vest, £3, Primark; trousers, £30, River Island; boots, £125, Dune; bag, £50, Aldo.

Why? I love the monochrome look so I wear a lot of black and white. Coming into the winter, I also wear a lot of rich colours like berry and tan. I would never wear a tracksuit out in public.

Who? Kim Kardashian looks great, she always keeps things classy and I love how she wears a lot of midi skirts, which I do too. I don't like Britney Spears' style because she can look tacky.

  • Monthly spend £100-150

Toni Boyd (25)

Business account manager, Annahilt

Wore what? Jacket, £60, Next; top, £2,

Principles, found in a charity shop; jeans, £30, shoes, £40, TK Maxx; bag, £120, Guess.

Why? I like tailored pieces so I wear a lot of jackets with jeans. I like to mix smart and casual. I wouldn't wear anything too plain or boring like a black suit.

Who? Olivia Palermo has a real knack for smart casual. I don't like the sporty look that Rita Ora goes for, though.

  • Monthly spend £100

Louise Brown (33)

Marketing consultant, Carrickfergus

Wore what? Dress, £40, Topshop; jacket, £20, New Look; boots, £60, and bag, £30, both from River Island.

Why? I tend to wear jackets and dresses for work, then jeans with a smart top at home. I always wear heels, as I'm short. I don't like anything too bright or luminous.

Who? Amanda Holden can be classy and wears nice dresses, but Lady Gaga is too extreme for me.

  • Monthly spend £200

Alex Hallam (18)

Student, Castlederg

Wore what? Jacket, £25, Dorothy Perkins; blouse, £15, bag, £25, skirt, £18, New Look; boots, £50, McElhinneys

Why? I normally wear skirts and blouses with a jacket or blazer. I'm not keen on big floral prints, though.

Who? Victoria Beckham has a nice classic style, but I don't like Lily Allen's look as she wears too many bright prints.

  • Monthly spend £50-60

Gemma Craig (27)

Civil servant, Belfast

Wore what? Scarf, £1, charity shop; t-shirt, £4, jeans, £15, H&M; bag, present, Primark

Why? My style is always casual - I wear lots of denim and always accessorise with a scarf. I would never wear anything with polka dots or patterns that are too bold.

Who? Kate Middleton looks nice and pretty all the time. I don't like Kelly Osbourne's style, as she tries to be edgy but misses.
