Fashion spy: Kate Middleton has a classy look but Kim Kardashian can take things too far

By Kerry McKittrick

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

Ashleigh Jones (22)

Banker, Dundonald

Wore what? Coat, £130, Zara; top, £25, River Island; skirt, £30, Warehouse; boots, £45, Topshop; bag, £130, Fossil.

Why? My style is classic and I go for neutral

colours. I don't like leggings, so I never wear them.

Who? Millie Mackintosh has a nice, understated look, but Rihanna has a trashy style.

  • Monthly spend £200

Yasemin Tepe (18)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Jumper, £19, New Look; scarf, £15, Primark; jeans, £36, bag, £45, Topshop; shoes, £40, Converse.

Why? I like to be cosy and I tend to wear pastel or jewel colours but nothing too bright. I'm not keen on block colours, like jumpsuits that are all the one colour.

Who?: Beyonce has a great style, everything she wears suits her. Kate Hudson is too casual, I've never seen her in anything I like.

Faith Baylor (21)

Student, Jordanstown

Wore what? Coat, £70, Zara; scarf, £20, House of Fraser; jumper, £15, H&M; shirt, £20, New Look; trousers, £35, Topshop; shoes, £40, Dorothy Perkins; bag, £900, Mulberry.

Why? I'm quite girly and I dress seasonally, so at Christmas I wear lots of sparkles. I never wear trainers out, though.

Who? Olivia Palermo has an amazingly classy style, but I would never go for what Paloma Faith wears, even if it works for her.

  • Monthly spend £300-400

Caoimhe Gordon (22)

Nurse, Killyleagh

Wore what? Coat, £15, Tesco; shirt, £8, Primark; leggings, £20, Topshop; boots, £23, bag, £20, New Look.

Why? My style is quite casual but I do like to follow trends. I never wear pink as it's my worst colour.

Who? Kate Middleton has a nice, classy look but I think Kim Kardashian has a strange style and can take things too far.

  • Monthly spend £150

Courtney Kervell (18)

Retail assistant, Lisburn

Wore what? Jacket, £20, Internacionale; hat, £15, H&M; top, £15, New Look; jeans, £30, River Island; boots, £25, New Look; bag, £10, Primark.

Why? My style is a bit rock chick and a little edgy - I go for black and a lot of metallic colours. I'd never go out in a tracksuit, though. - they're for lounging round on the sofa only.

Who? Rihanna has a great edge to her style but Katie Price is too chavvy for my taste.
