Wore what? Dress, £17, boots, £20, both Nasty Gal; coat, £35, Next; bag, £35, River Island.

Why? I would say my style is quite unique. It’s girly, but with an edge.

Who? My style is quite similar to Irish blogger Rosie Connolly’s. She’ll take a really feminine look and make it a little more edgy.

Wore what? Jumper, £10, trousers, £13, both Primark; coat, £30, New Look; hat, £5, Dunnes Stores; shoes, £55, Converse; bag, £45, Dune at TK Maxx.

Why? I would say my style is smart casual. I prefer neutral and earthy tones on me, rather than anything too bold.

Who? Fashion blogger Louise Cooney is very stylish. She wears a lot of affordable pieces, which means it’s achievable for people on a budget.

Wore what? Jumper, £13, Primark; jacket, £30, trousers, £35, both Stradivarius; hat, £12, Peacocks; shoes, £55, Converse.

Why? I can’t really define my style. I could dress really girly one day, then wear something super-relaxed the next day.

Who? I think model Gigi Hadid’s look is so chic and fresh.

Wore what? Jumper, £25, jacket, £69; both Topshop; trousers, £45, bag, £30, both River Island; shoes, £75, Nike.

Why? I’m a new mummy, so I try to keep my style as practical as possible. I’d probably describe my look as smart casual, with lots of black and neutral tones.

Who? I like how Frankie Bridge’s style is obtainable because it’s straight off the high street.
