Fashion spy heads into Belfast for a quick snoop

By Kerry McKittrick

Our reporter checks out the style in Belfast city centre and finds quite a few fashionistas out and about on the capital's streets.

Hannah Blackwood (19)

Student, Hillsborough

Wore what? Shirt, £15, ASOS; trousers, £25, Jack Wills; shoes, £30, River Island; bag, £40, Topshop.

Why? I wear a lot of blouses and my style is quite classic, but still feminine. I don't like to wear crop tops during the day, as they're too revealing.

Who? Miranda Kerr has a nice simple style, but I don't like Lily Allen's look as it's a little too eclectic.

  • Monthly spend £120

Karoline Brocz (20)

Student, Carrickfergus

Wore what? Jacket, £25, top, £6, jeans, £25, trainers, £28, all from eBay; bag, £12, F&F.

Why? I like to be a bit quirky and love eBay for bargains. I never wear very short skirts — they show off a little too much.

Who? Kim Kardashian’s curviness means she can get away with wearing anything. Taylor Swift's style is a little too simple and plain for me, though.

  • Monthly spend £150

Gillian Russell (29)

Mental health worker, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £10, River Island; jacket, £20, Primark; shoes, £55, Topshop; bag, present, Marc Jacobs.

Why? I like to mix the rock chick look with nice dresses. I’d never wear sportswear out and about, though, and I never wear anything too short.

Who? I love Alexa Chung because she has an androgynous style that’s not on trend. I don’t like anyone from TOWIE, there’s too much fake tan.

  • Monthly spend £100

Jolene Maguire (20)

Tattooist, Belfast

Wore what? Cardigan, £12, top, £3, skirt, £7, bag, £12, all from Primark; shoes, £42, Schuh.

Why? My taste is quirky and I'm not shy about patterns and colours. I wouldn't go for luminous clothes or anything too bright, however.

Who? Rihanna isn't afraid to be a little bit different and colourful. I'm not keen on Lady Gaga's look — she's so strange.

  • Monthly spend £100

Rachel Jones (18)

Student, Lisburn

Wore what? Vest, £1.50, trousers, £9, shoes, £8, all from Primark; cardigan, £25, bag, £25 both from River Island.

Why? My style is casual and colourful and I like girly accessories. I’m not one for jeans.

Who? I like Molly King from The Saturdays, who has a pretty and casual style. I don't like Miley Cyrus, her look is terrible.
