Tuesday's Fashion Spy

Kerry McKittrick checks out the style at the Unify Fashion Showcase at the Titanic Drawing Rooms in Belfast.

Niamh Hughes (26)

Transport manager, Cookstown

Wore what? Jacket, £39, top, £29 both from; jeans, £20, New Look; shoes, £10,|Barratts; bag, £20, Mulberry (Thailand).

Why? My style is quite co-ordinated and I'm a big online shopper. I don't like clashing colours like orange with red, but colour-blocking is fine.

Who? I like Fearne Cotton's vintage girly style, but Lily Allen mixes things up too much.


Jeanette Lyness (41)

Runs a track day business, Banbridge

Wore what? Jacket, £25, New Look; jumpsuit, £13, TK Maxx; shoes, £50, Faith; clutch, £10, Coach.

Why? I like to be classic with a touch of glamour but I don't follow trends. I wouldn’t go for double denim, even if it is in fashion.

Who? I love Victoria Beckham’s classic style but I don’t like a chavvy look like Tulisa’s.


Amy Cranston (20)

Fashion student, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £99 and skirt, £70, both from the Snooty Fox in Dungannon; boots, £300, Acne; bag, £12, Primark.

Why? I usually dress quite simply but I do like quirky styles with embellishments. I don't like harem pants, they make your legs look too short.

Who? Sienna Millar has a nice, quirky, easy-going style. Cheryl Cole looks too thought-out, though — I prefer people with effortless styles.


Christine McKeever (20s)

Teacher, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £55, Cici by Topshop; shoes, £120, Biba; bag, present, Mulberry.

Why? I love vintage styles and quirky pieces. You shouldn’t wear clothes just because they’re in fashion, you should create your own style.

Who? I really like Millie McIntosh’s look as she’s wearing some lovely high street brands. I don’t really get Rihanna’s style, and I wasn't impressed by her collection for River Island.
