With the cold winter months ahead, I thought it'd be a good idea to start looking at some winter trends that have lately made its way to the runways around the world. What better inspiration than the epitome of cold winter months-Russia! The whole "Tsar" period has become a trend in itself with large trench coats, military jackets in colors of military-green, black, and brown, and even aviator-style suits. 
Huge-name designers have caught on to this trend, some of which include; Lavin, Paul Smith, D&G, and Dries Van Noten.

The Max Mara collection is even taking military jackets and trench coats straight from the Russian military. It can't get more inspired than that!
Some other styles and trends making head-waves in the fashion world are knee-high boots, and fitted pants in military-inspired colors, perfect for those cold winter months!

When I was little and still living in Russia, I remember having to bundle up in many heavy layers and fur hats. Fur is huge in Russia, and has always been in order to stay warm, especially in harsh winter weather. It is such a huge cultural clothing item that has become very popular for this season as well! It adds a beautiful texture to any piece of clothing, and has a rich dimension to clothing!
