I'm really loving the army/military trend (greenish military shirts, parkas, hiking boots with heels, etc) but do you guys think it will last? Or is it already out?

i think military in general never goes out of style but some things specifically may be too trendy to withstand the test of time.

I think it would be good to buy a few favorite pieces that you love, and hold on to them. This trend is forever, it just goes and comes every few years or so.
 
In 2001, a UK (Channel 4) TV series called She's Gotta Have It broadcasted a Military/Safari special, in Glasgow. One lady opted for a white shirt and tie set from Reiss, together with a charcoal skirt and handbag. Another opted for dark green colours, though turning down the military jacket. It is one of the most versatile looks going...

A military style jacket/coat has been around forever and will never go away. The look is sharp with tailoring and flattering to most people.

The military look and variations thereof come and go every few seasons. The same jacket that might be "safari" one spring could easily be reinterpreted as "military" in the fall. The sharp tailoring and shiny brass buttons are a little more obvious and definitely wax and wane as far as popularity goes, but tailored pieces are very flattering to many people, so a more understated style could work well for years. As with any trend, the far edges of it will be "out" relatively soon, but more moderate items will work for a long while.

I agree, I remember when Helmut Lang was very popular in the late 90s and the military look was played up quite a bit back then. It's come back and again several times since then.
