Fashion Spy: I like Kate Moss, because her look is simple, but sophisticated

Our reporter Laura Abernethy checks out the style at Victoria Square, Belfast and finds plenty of trendy people out and about.

Katie McDowell (18), shop assistant, Dundonald

Wore what? Shoes, £50, Wallis; top, £20, Bershka; jeans, £20, Asda; jacket, £40, H&M; bag, £10, Primark.

Why? My style is quite feminine and girly, but I like to wear a mix of black, beige and brown. I tend to mix plain things with clothes with a little bit of a pattern.

Who? I like Kate Moss, because her look is simple, but sophisticated. I don't like celebrities who dress over the top, like Lady Gaga.

Nicole Adams (24), hairdresser, Newtownabbey

Wore what? Boots, £24, pinafore, £20, shirt, £15, all New Look.

Why? I wear a lot of tan and mustard colours and, although it's coming into winter, I like to keep it quite neutral and not too dark.

Who? I like Rita Ora's style, because it's a wee bit crazy, but I don't think Kim Kardashian really pulls any look off, especially now she's pregnant.

  • Monthly spend £300

Cora-Lee Johnston (22) student, Coleraine

Wore what? Shoes, £23, Topshop; dress, £20, bag, £30, both New Look; jacket, £50, Tempest; scarf, £5, Primark.

Why? My style is a mix of smart and casual. At the minute, I really like mustard and plum and I like to keep it quite plain. I wouldn't really wear pink as I don't like to be too girly.

Who? I like Fearne Cotton. I think she's quite funky, but makes being fashionable effortless. I don't really like Kim Kardashian.

  • Monthly spend £50-70

Bethany McClean (20), student, Ballygowan

Wore what? Jacket, £25, Zara; top, £20, Naff Naff; jeans, £40, Topshop; shoes, £50, Converse; bag, £7, H&M.

Why? I like to try and keep up with trends and I like to look chic. I wear a lot of jeans and try to dress them up a bit. I like things that are quite colourful and a nice print.

Who? I love Kate Middleton's style, because she's so classy, but I don't like the grungy look of celebrities like Kate Moss.

  • Monthly spend £50

Helen Creaney (19), student, Portstewart

Wore what? Jeans, £42, shoes, £50, top, £50, bag, £60, all Topshop; jacket, £60, Miss Selfridge.

Why? I got this top for a festival and I liked it because it's sort of bohemian. That's the style I normally go for. I love blues and greys.

Who? I like Daisy Lowe because she's slightly edgy. I don't like Kate Moss, because I'm not into too much leather, or anything too grungy.

  • Monthly spend £70

Sammy-Jo Campbell (27), shop assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Shoes, £15, bag, £10, both Primark; jeans, £40, top, £30, jacket, £50, all Topshop.

Why? I wear quite dark colours, particularly greys and blacks, and then I like to add just a touch of colour here and there. My style is a real mix. I'm happy to wear pretty much anything.

Who? My favourite celebrity is Alexa Chung. Everything she wears is very simple, but it looks great. I don't like Miley Cyrus. She's a bit too much.
