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

By Kerry McKittrick

Donna Gribben (36)

Medical rep, Belfast

Wore what? Coat, £100, blouse, £40, trousers, £35, all from Zara; shoes, £25, Next.

Why? I think my style is business glamour — smart but dressed up a little bit. I'm not keen on wearing too much black.

Why? Tess Daly’s style is spot-on and she always looks really pretty. Rihanna’s choice of clothes works for her but isn't to my taste at all.

  • Monthly spend £250

Louise Brown (25)

Bank worker, Belfast

Wore what? Jumpsuit, £32, Bank; cardigan, £10, Tesco; sandals, £4, Primark; bag, £25 New Look.

Why? I like to be comfortable so I wear a lot of jeans and hoodies. I don't like tracksuits out of the gym, though - that's taking things a little too far.

Who? I like Katie Price's style, what you see is what you get with her. I wouldn’t be keen on Tulisa Contostavlos; she just tends to get it wrong.

  • Monthly spend £40-£50

Sara Towers (34)

Training co-ordinator, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £45, Urban Outfitters;|cardigan, £25, Marks & Spencer; bag, £35,|Dickens & Jones; shoes, £13, Tesco.

Why? I try to be girly and I like pretty patterns but I’m a bargain hunter. I don’t like anything that’s too clingy, such as body con or wet look leggings — they show things off too much.

Who? I like classic styles like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. I wouldn’t go for the look of someone like Katie Price, she’s too over the top.

  • Monthly spend £150

Danielle Carson (21)

Student, Crumlin

Wore what? Top, £10, New Look; jeggings, £40, River Island; sandals, £10, Primark; bag, present, Ted Baker.

Why? My style is cute and comfortable and I like to follow trends. I’ve never been a fan of big wedge heels - I just wear flats or stilettos.

Who? Kim Kardashian always looks great, but Lady Gaga’s style is far too daring for me.

  • Monthly spend £400

Jemma Bogle (24)

Art teacher, Belfast

Wore what? Hat, £24, shirt, £45, shorts, £20, all from Urban Outfitters; top, £8, Topshop; boots, £45, Tesco; bag, £150, the Cambridge Satchel Company.

Why? My style is rock chick and I like vintage clothes. I don't like bright, neon colours at all.

Who? Fearne Cotton looks great. Cheryl Cole is too styled and a bit manufactured for me.
