Street Trend: Ailish McEvoy

Name: Ailish McEvoy

Most expensive item ever bought? I guess about €500 on a black Ralph Lauren dress, for a wedding

Best bargain? I love the BT sales and I got a Michael Kors dress once for €49, down from about €450

Best dressed celebrity? Victoria Beckham — if I could afford her, I’d definitely buy her clothes

Worst dressed celebrity? Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians are, well, a bit tasteless

How much would you spend on clothes per month? About €300

Fashion faux-pas? Leggings, definitely. Or tights as leggings, which is weird

Name: Jazmine Byas

Age: 24

Occupation: Classical musician

Favourite shops: I really like to shop online, so I use American Apparel a lot, and Uniqlo

Most expensive item ever bought? A silk dress for $100, but I don’t really like spending money on clothes

Best bargain? Probably that dress, it’s a really good dress

Best dressed celebrity? I don’t think I can say

Worst dressed celebrity? I don’t think about celebrities that much

How much would you spend on clothes per month? About €50

Fashion faux-pas? When people wear big sweaters with tights, but the sweater is too short, and the tights are too see-through
