Fashion Spy: Kim Kardashian looks good in everything but Avril Lavigne too gothic

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

Bernie Brocklehurst (29)

Full-time mother, Portaferry

Wore what? Coat, £70, Wallis; top, £28, skirt, £20, both Next; boots, £100, River Island; bag, £30, local chemist.

Why? I wear lots of black along with something in a bright colour, as well as scarves. I would never be seen out in a tracksuit, though - I don't even own a pair of trainers.

Who? Kate Middleton looks sophisticated but rather conservative. I don't like how Lily Allen dresses though - she mixes things up too much.

Rea Johnston (30)

Actor, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £30, Zara; jumper, £50, All Saints; dress, £15, Camden Market; boots, £110, Dune; bag, £100, Lakeland.

Why?: My style is boho chic - I stick to the higher end of the high street as the clothes are better quality and last longer. I never wear anything with brand logos splashed on them.

Who?: Angelina Jolie has a classy style and looks sophisticated. Amy Childs isn't my cup of tea - she wears too many brands and too much make-up.

  • Monthly spend £40

Edel Quigley (25)

Dental nurse, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £45, Exhibit; shirt, £13, jeans, £15, both H&M; bag, £15, Egyptian market; boots, £10, Primark.

Why? I follow trends and I really like my accessories. I don't like clothes that show off too much flesh - that's not my style.

Who? Olivia Palermo has fantastic style, but I think Jordan looks tacky.

  • Monthly spend £100

Stacey Andrews (26)

Nursery assistant, Bangor

Wore what? Coat, £80, shorts, £40, Topshop; jumper, £10, Primark; boots, £100, bag, £45, both River Island.

Why?: I like to follow trends each season, but I'm not into neon colours - I like bright things.

Who? Millie Mackintosh from Made In Chelsea dresses really well, but I don't like the neon colours that Nicki Minaj wears.

Gail McGinn (19)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Coat, £40, scarf, £15, boots, £28, all New Look; bag, £40, River Island.

Why?: My style is classy and colourful, and I like to accessorise, but I don't wear short skirts or anything too revealing.

Who?: Kim Kardashian looks good in everything. I'm not too keen on Avril Lavigne as her style is too gothic for me.
