GALLERY >> Fashion tips from my-wardrobe.com's Style Summit

Angelica Blick - Sports Chic

“Blue and orange are really strong this season and [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/vivienne-westwood-bags/oversized-envelope-clutch-in-two-tone-leather-159460" target="_blank">this Vivienne Westwood clutch[/a] combines the two with a sports-luxe twist. I’d wear it with everything to add a burst of colour to my look. I tend to find inspiration from street-style and magazines but I think it’s really important to focus on your own style.”

Anjelica Lorenz - Summer Skins

“This [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/alexis-barrell/patchwork-leather-bomber-jacket-261075" target="_blank">Alexis Barrell jacket[/a] is the perfect choice for channelling SS13’s Summer Skins trend and makes for a refreshing alternative to traditional black leather. I’ll be wearing it with a luxe white tee, leather pants and statement boots, swapping for chic sandals come cocktail hour – and if I was feeling really adventurous? Work the print-on-print look with a snakeskin dress.”

Caroline Berg Eriksen - Graphics

“For me, SS13 is all about [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/red-valentino/poppy-paint-print-shift-dress-927557" target="_blank">this Red Valentino dress[/a]. It’s so unusual with the combination of stripes, floral print – and I love the belt too. I would keep the styling simple; match my shoes to a colour within the design and add a plain clutch for an easy finish. I love Olivia Palermo’s style – she always looks so polished.”

Zanita Morgan - Volume

“[a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/bruuns-bazaar/stone-cassandra-soft-lamb-leather-trousers-235642" target="_blank">These Bruuns Bazaar leather trousers[/a] are perfect for tackling this season’s volume trend and can be styled up to suit any occasion. For comfort I’d wear them with trainers and a t-shirt, swapping for black boots and a black tank for something a little sexier, or throw on a bright blue sweater and white heels to give off a geometric feel.”

Shea Marie - Print Clash

“I am in love with [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/sophie-hulme/blue-medium-leather-tote-with-gold-plated-hardware-246291" target="_blank">this Sophie Hulme tote[/a]. It’s so bright and effective, you can keep the styling minimal with just a simple white tee and jeans – the bag will do the rest! Acne leather jackets are my ultimate wardrobe staple.”

Sandra Hagelstam - Sheer Bravado

“I find bi-colour shoes are always more interesting to pull off an outfit – plus it’s a challenge to make beige desirable and [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/bionda-castana/kiki-cut-out-lace-up-boot-347782" target="_blank">these shoes definitely do that[/a]. They’re a great leg-lengthener and would look amazing with a pair of rolled-up jeans or a dress – a super versatile pair! I’m a huge fan of the suit trend and am always inspired by designers that manage to reinvent it in unconventional ways – that’s when you know you have a genius! I would advise people to invest in good tailoring and minimalist pieces because you can wear them forever. My go-to brands would be Acne because they’re shapes, prints and cuts are always done in a non-obvious way, and I also love 3.1 Phillip Lim and Sportmax.”

Rumi Neely - Leather

“[a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/acne/mape-petite-cropped-suede-biker-jacket-677460" target="_blank">This blue suede biker is just beautiful[/a] – I already have a shearling leather jacket by Acne but this version is now top of my wish list. You could style it with double denim, over a white dress or as a colourful twist on monochrome – so many options!”

Marie Hindkaer Andersen - Minimal

“I need [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/sportmax/pio-tailored-slouchy-trousers-with-front-panels-581389" target="_blank">these Sportmax trousers[/a]! They’re so versatile you could wear them with a tailored jacket and casual t-shirt or keep it a little more casual with an oversized chunky knit and white pumps - very sleek, minimal and so now.”

Kristina Bazan - The Sixties

“I’ve got my eye on [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/tucker/bunches-of-bumblebees-jumbo-wrap-jacket-885454" target="_blank">this yellow knitted cover-up from Tibi[/a]. It’s so cosy and bright and yet really easy to style. I’d wear it day to day with black leather pants, boots and maybe a hat – or go for a colour-block effect with navy blue details.”

Camille Charrière - White

“I absolutely love [a href="http://www.my-wardrobe.com/3.1-phillip-lim/spade-striped-pointed-haircalf-loafer-708633" target="_blank">these 3.1 Phillip Lim loafers[/a] and would wear them with everything from boyfriend jeans and baggy leather to mini skirts and dresses – the options are endless. For me, a pair of interesting flats is the key to transforming any outfit. My typical style tends to be very bi-chromatic – always blacks, whites and very simple. I love the idea of a ‘colour-blind outfit’; it’s the perfect challenge for making your look more interesting and forces you to focus instead on textures, volume and styling.”

Earlier this month luxury designer fashion site my-wardrobe.com invited 10 international fashion bloggers to London for what they dubbed their 'Spring Summer 2013 Style Summit'. Taking place over two days, the bloggers who hailed from across the globe, were welcomed to town by my-wardrobe.com's Fashion Director Carmen Borgonovo and given the chance to choose Spring Summer 2013 pieces from the store to style up a new season trend.

The digital dream team, including Rumi Neely from fashiontoast.com, Caroline Berg Erikenson from fotballfrue.no, and Camille Charriere from camilleovertherainbow.com, took up the challenge to translate their trend into one wearable new season look. They had a little help from Bobbi Brown - on hand to create Spring Summer makeup looks - as well as band of street style photographers to capture their every move in the studio space.

Shea Marie from US site peaceloveshea.com tackled the vibrant, yet tricky, 'Print Clash' trend while Marie Hinder Andersen from blameitonfashion.freshnet.se delivered a very modern take on 'Minimalism' with a pair of Sportmax trousers. Sandra Hagelstam from 5inchandup.blogspot.co.uk played with 'Textures and Transparency', Angelica Blick from Angelicablick.se mastered 'Sports Chic' and Kristina Bazan of Kayture.com rocked 'The Sixties'.

Take a look through the gallery above to see the 10 bloggers' Spring Summer 2013 style tips and shop the trends at my-wardrobe.com.
