Military seems to be the eternal autumn/winter trend which pops up every year.
But this season it's better, and easier to wear than ever.
Luckily for devotees who love the functionality of military style, but still want their look to have a new-season edge, there's a new spin.
The new army chic is about working the khaki army surplus vibe while adding a hard, masculine edge with leather details and caps.
It also ties in with the trend to embellish: army-style accessories with jewel details are perfect for softening the look.
For wearability, look for ways to tone down the full-on army vibe.
The easiest way to get the look on the high street is with a khaki army jacket, which will act as an instant wardrobe updater; Primark and Internaçionale's versions are both worth checking out, but they're all over the shops at the moment.
Look to the AW12 catwalks for inspiration on how to style the trend.
Victoria Beckham's runway was a masterclass in rocking the army vibe with tough accessories, including wrap around leather belts, long boots and caps, but keeping the silhouette ultra-feminine with fitted midi dresses.
Burberry Prorsum also toned down the full-on military look by combining subtle army-inspired details like desert boots, brass buttons and a khaki-toned colour scheme with cute bow belts and owl emblems.
It's all about being as eclectic as you like and incorporating the look into your own personal style for an individual edge.

PURE DELUX MANICURE by Leighton Denny at Pure Spa, Silverburn, £27
A YORKSHIRE-BORN former fork-lift truck driver might not be the first person you think of when it comes to celebrity nails.
But Leighton Denny has shaped quite a career since opening his first salon in Bradford.
From the Spice Girls to Kate Moss, Rihanna to Joan Collins, he has tended to the talons of all the A listers.
Now Pure Spa at Silverburn has started using Leighton's Expert Nails products for its range of manicures and pedicures.
I go for a vibrant blue polish, called ink jet, which is one of a wide selection to choose from, including pastels, metallics, and vibrant plums and reds.
After two coats, Miracle Mist Speed Drying Spray is applied to ensure everything's set.
