Fashion Spy Belfast: Kate Moss really knows how to co-ordinate, but Rihanna is too mixed up

Kerry McKittrick checks out the style in Belfast City Centre

Kim McBride (32), Pharmacist, Draperstown

Wore what? Jacket, £30, Zara; bag, £125, Guess; skirt, £15, Sisley; boots, £40, Dune; shirt, £20 and scarf, £8, both from H&M.

Why? I am a bargain hunter, so I buy a lot of very good classic pieces in the sales. Denim shirts are something I never wear, as they don't look good on me.

Who? Kate Moss really knows how to dress and co-ordinate. Rihanna is too mixed up — I don't like her style at all.

* Monthly spend £120

Raichael Flynn (20), Make-up artist, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £55, River Island; dress, £15, H&M; scarf, £10, boots, £30, bag, £20 all from a boutique in Glasgow

Why? I like to follow trends, but mix and match clothes that suit me. I'm not keen on sparkly items — they make everything look overdone.

Who? Fearne Cotton mixes her style in a way I really like, but Cheryl Cole's style is too girly and glittery for me.

Dara Quinn (19), Student, Newry

Wore what? Shirt, £60, Gant; skirt, £10, H&M; boots, £20, Priceless; hat, £8, jacket, £15, scarf, £3, all from Primark

Why? My style is funky and unique, though I don't like the chunky platform shoes that are on trend at the moment, they look cheap and tacky.

Who? I love Rihanna's clothes and hair. Her whole look is fantastic. On the other hand Jordan takes it too far and she doesn't look good.

Aynsley Thompson (27), Civil servant, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £55, jeans, £40, Topshop; boots, £120, Kurt Geiger; bag, £40, Accesssorize; jumper, £25, scarf, £15, both from River Island

Why? I follow trends and try to match colours, but my style is quite classic. I think football shirts look terrible and girls shouldn't wear them.

Who? Mollie from The Saturdays always looks smart and funky, but Lily Allen mixes styles too much for my taste.

* Monthly spend £300

Laine Melia (30) Eyelash designer, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £75, Next; T-shirt, £12, H&M; skirt, £60, Topshop; boots, £115, River Island; bag, £10, New Look

Why? Normally I go for slightly different clothes so that I don’t look the same as everyone else. I think tracksuits are unattractive.

Who? I'm loving Victoria Beckham's look because no-one else is doing anything like it. Paloma Faith takes the vintage look too far.
