Fashion Spy: Keira Knightley has an easy, simple style, but I don’t like anyone who is overdone with lots of fake tan, like the Kardashians.

By Kerry McKittrick

Our reporter checks out the style at Belfast City Hall and finds a lot of stylish people out and about.

Catherine Donnelly (29)

Civil servant, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £25, New Look; sandals, £5 and bag, £10, both from Primark.

Why? My style is quite smart during the week, then at weekends I tend to go for jeans and pumps. I don’t like this trend of ankle socks with sandals that people are wearing at the minute.

Who? I love Mollie King from The Saturdays. Her style is casual but she always looks immaculately turned out. I don’t like Lady Gaga, she’s just a disaster.

  • Monthly spend £100

Niamh Doherty (27)

Accountant, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £13, and bag, £15, both from Primark; sandals, £32, Office.

Why? I like bright colours and patterns but I don't tend to follow trends — what I wear depends on my mood. I'm not a fan of animal prints or anything that looks tacky.

Who? Keira Knightley has an easy, simple style, but I don’t like anyone who is overdone with lots of fake tan, like the Kardashians.

  • Monthly spend £50-60

Bronagh Berry (34)

Credit controller, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £40, Next; sandals, £12, New Look; sunglasses, £5, Spanish market.

Why? I do like to follow trends and I'm a big fan of colour. I don't like tiny little shorts — they're not a good look on some people.

Who? Victoria Beckham's taste in clothes is fantastic but I really don't like Kelly Osbourne’s wardrobe, she doesn't have a good sense of style.

  • Monthly spend £200-300

Lisa Algie (26)

Personal assistant, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £30, River Island; sunglasses, £5, and purse, £10, both from New Look; shoes, £10, Tesco.

Why? My style is quite classic and dressy. I often go for dresses as they are easy to wear and look smart. I don't like see-through leggings, though — they’re not a good look.

Who? Giselle always looks well put together but I wouldn’t be a fan of anyone from TOWIE.

  • Monthly spend £150

Karen McMullan (36)

Banker, Glengormley

Wore what? Dress, £35, and bag, £35, both from Oasis; belt, £8, Dorothy Perkins; shoes, £35, Debenhams.

Why? I love dresses. I also wear a lot of heels and don't go for flat shoes at all. In fact, the only pair I own are trainers.

Who? I love Michelle Keegan’s look because she wears fitted dresses and heels. I don't like grungy styles like those favoured by Madonna.
