Top trend: I like the whole wearing a nice dress with runners thing.
Style icon: I like Victoria Beckham. She's always really clean, really smart, polished. There's a few people that I follow on Instagram as well.
Wardrobe staple: For work I wear a lot of dresses so I suppose they would be my go-to, easy option. Not necessarily a wardrobe staple. My style is pretty classic.
Go-to shops: I go to Zara a lot and actually I've been going to Marks & Spencers much more in the last year or two.
21, Retail Worker
Outfit: Jacket Nasty Gal, top River Island, culottes from a tiny shop in Slovakia, shoes Korky's, socks Ali Express
Top trend: Fishnets and anything glitter. Cow print is so cool right now, I love it. I got a cow print bucket hat the other day - it's amazing. I also ordered a cow print denim jacket and cow print jeans so I'm going to look like an insane cow girl but I can't wait!
Style icon: Instagram girls.
Wardrobe staple: Plain enough shoes because I like to add one colourful piece in an outfit, like my jacket today.
Go-to shops: I do a lot of online shopping so like Nasty Gal and Glitter Disco Child.
19, Student at TCD
Outfit: Coat Topman, denim jacket Zara, top River Island, joggers TK Maxx , runners Vans, watch Newbridge Silverware, glasses Vision Express
Top trend: Usually I would be into wearing the whole tight fit stuff, but lately I like wearing more loose things. I've another jacket from Boohoo Man and it's kind of a lumberjack jacket, and I wear that all the time too.
Style icon: Mainly people around me, even people in my class. Maybe we just tend to dress similarly, but no famous people no.
Wardrobe staple: I suppose jackets or knit jumpers - I wear them a lot together with the jacket open and knitwear underneath like that.
Go-to shops: Bershka, Topman, Zara and Pull & Bear - they'd be the main four. They're not too expensive but I like their designs.
