Parkas have been around for a long time. Their first mention in English is 1625, describing the Nenets word for an animal skin wrap. As designed today, these coats are used in the coldest places on earth. They are known for keeping the wearer warm in even the most extreme of climates. The coats are sometimes made with fur or shearling sheepskin leather to keep the cold out and reduce chances of getting wet from loose snow or freezing rain. Newer designs of parkas include military style, hipster and more. Lookbook has menswear parkas and petite, cute coats for women that will knock the snow right out of winter!
