I know what cold winter weather feels like, being born and raised in Alaska I know how to dress for the Cold! We Alaskans know how to stay warm, mostly by wearing fur, down and wool. Growing up I spent a lot of time outdoors even if it was cold. As and adult I still crave being outdoors, but now staying warm must be functional and fashionable! Here are some Alaskan inspired parkas.

If you are in need of a good looking parka, fur, wool, faux fur or down parka, here are a few of my favorites!
