Fashion Spy: I adore Victoria Beckham’s style because it’s so classy

Our reporter Rachel Dean checks out the latest styles at Victoria Square, Belfast.

Jessica Ferris (22), student, Londonderry

Wore what? Top, £24.99, New Look; trousers, £19.99, Zara; shoes, £50, Dune; bag, £32, River Island.

Why? I’d say my look is chic, but very easy to maintain. I love patterned pieces because they add a jolt of energy and colour to my outfits.

Who? My style icon has to be Jessica Alba. Her look is simple yet elegant and she wears it so well.

Vicki Fry (30), teacher, Comber

Wore what? Top, £5, Matalan; shirt, £30, H&M; jeans, £40, TK Maxx; shoes, £40, Dune; bag, gift, Mulberry.

Why? My style is casual and laid-back. It’s effortless, but I still look and feel good in it.

Who? I think Scarlett Johansson is a perfect example of classy feminine style. Her red carpet looks are my favourite.

Carragh Hosick (23), health care assistant, Lisburn

Wore what? Shirt, £15, H&M; jeans, £45, Topshop; shoes, £25, New Look; bag, £742, Louis Vuitton.

Why? I base my outfits around a very plain and modest look. I don’t like anything too showy.

Who? I adore Victoria Beckham’s style because it’s so classy. She has such a great way with fashion — her own range is modern and achievable.

Hayley McCelland (19), customer service rep, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £8, shoes, £18, bag, £12, all Primark; jeans, £12, jacket, £25, both New Look.

Why? I would describe my style as girly chic. Sometimes, I also go for a more elegant look, just to change up my image.

Who? Zoe Sugg has such a cute, unique style. All her outfits are pretty, preppy and feminine and it suits her personality perfectly.

Jodie McGoldrick (27), administrator, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £35, necklace, £6, a boutique in Spain; shoes, £8, Primark; bag, £25, River Island.

Why? I follow fashion trends in order to achieve a modern look. I don’t like extravagant outfits — I believe that you should wear an outfit rather than letting it wear you.

Who? Michelle Keegan’s style is tasteful. Her different looks are always appropriate for her body shape and the occasion. She wears pastel colours a lot, which are perfect for her skin tone.

Judith Kelly (29), lawyer, Ballyclare

Wore what? Top, £30, skirt, £60, both French Connection; jacket, £180, bag, £65, both Zara; shoes, £10, a boutique in Australia.

Why? Because of my profession, my style could definitely be described as smart casual. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses as I think they look much classier.

Who? I love sophisticated, feminine looks, such as Olivia Palermo’s and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s. They just never get it wrong.

Carla McCullough (25), eyelash extensionist, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £12.99, Zara; jeans, £42, River Island; jacket, £29.99, Bershka; shoes, £14, Primark; bag, £300, Michael Kors.

Why? My look could be described as very relaxed. I go for a lot of neutral coloured outfits as I think they suit me better than bold colours.

Who? I love Lucy Mecklenburgh’s style because she can switch from casual looks to dressy and look great either way. She always looks ladylike.

Robyn McCaughey (20), student, Bangor

Wore what? Shirt, £30, Topshop; jeans, £40, River Island; shoes, £40, Next; bag, £20, Zara.

Why? If I could describe my style in one word, it would be ‘simplistic’. I think plainer outfits look more mature and clean. I don’t follow trends — instead, I just do my own thing and wear what I feel most comfortable in.

Who? Gigi Hadid is so trendy. She is girly, but classy.
