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

Sarah McDonagh (22)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £17, Primark; necklace, £12, top, £16, Topshop; leggings, £15, H&M; boots, £75, Office; purse, £15, River Island.

Why? I like to dress casual but I would go for leather items too. I don't like anything pink or too girly.

Who? The model Jessica Burciaga has great style and so does the actress Jessica Alba, they're both quirky and like bright colours. I don't like Lily Allen, though, as her style is too grungy for me.

Emma Taylor (18)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Coat, £50, Zara; shirt, £30, Hollister; jeans, £20, New Look; bag, £16, Topshop; boots, £25, H&M.

Why? My style is sophisticated and classic but I like to be feminine and I'm not afraid of a bit of colour. I don't like jumpsuits or anything boho.

Who? I like classy dressers like Victoria Beckham and Kate Middleton. I don't like Cara Delevingne's style, though – she rocks it, but I couldn't.

Shannon Taylor (18)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £20, skirt, £15, shoes, £17, all from New Look; vest, £3, bag, £8, both from Primark.

Why? I have a rock chick style so I go for a lot of leather, lace and tartan. I don't like jelly shoes in neon colours, they're just terrible.

Who? I really like Fearne Cotton's edgy, vintage style but I'm not keen on Miley Cyrus's look, as it's a bit over the top.

Scarlett Reilly (20)

Student, Newcastle

Wore what? Shirt, £20, H&M; leggings, £10, Miss Selfridge; boots, £35, Missguided; bag, present, House of Fraser.

Why? My style is mostly grungy so I tend to go for dark colours. I love anything monochrome, but I don't go for things that are too pink.

Who? I love the boho chic look of Vanessa Hudgens. I don't like how Lady Gaga changes her style all the time.

Fionnguala Cullen (23)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Kimono, £20, vest, £8, both from New Look; trousers, £12, flip flops, £2, both from Primark; bag, £40, River Island.

Why? I like colour but I prefer to do my own thing instead of following trends. I don't like anything too casual like Crocs.

Who? Rihanna and Beyonce both have a great, edgy style but Victoria Beckham's look is a little too plain for me.
