The military look, particularly camouflage anything is hot, hot, hot! Coats, pants, dresses, fabrics, and furs are popular.

  • For me fur is the go to choice for any winter coat – it’s fashionable, sexy and always faux – and this year makes no difference. H&M has some pretty cool ones this year but my favorite are the Topshop ones. As for boots, I remember hating Timberland boots when I was younger but now I have two pairs after seeing so many fashion bloggers rocking these boots.

  • Have to say I hate jogger pants, I don’t think they look good on anyone and don’t think they’re more comfy than a normal, relaxed fit pair of jeans.

  • This list might be from 2014, but from what I’ve seen most of these fashions never go out of style.
