How To: Add some Winter Wonder to your Summer Staples

If you happen to live in a country with the expected seasonal weather, (hot in the summer, cold in the winter etc,) then you will be able to keep your wardrobe well stocked, month by month, as the collections falling off the runways slip nicely into your seasonal style and you always have something to wear. I, however, do not, and as it stands after nine months of summer already, i'm craving a little bit of winter wonder in my wardrobe and have found the perfect printed style inspiration to do so: the houndstooth. A staple in Gwen Stefani's wardrobe no matter what the weather, a few celebs as of late have been adding touches of this iconic pattern to their red carpet creations and i think this injection of Fall/Winter into Spring/Summer is just the thing to curb my cold month cravings. Here are a few celebs who have got the same idea as i do:

Ashley Green steps out onto the blue carpet in her summer whites but a cute houndstooth clutch is the perfect accessory to her clean-cut look.

Selena Gomez does a radio interview in some very short shorts with all black accessories to balance out the pattern.

Alexa Chung blends winter and summer perfectly in these printed shades that will be a must have at all the festivals this month.

Kim Kardashian drapes a scarf over her casual get-up and sticks to the black and white colour theme.
