No one knows how to dress for winter like an East Coaster. New Jersey–based content creator Allison Whalen is no exception. Her Instagram feed offers a master class in everyday layering, featuring an endless array of luxe sweaters, laid-back flannel, artfully draped scarves, and cozy footwear. “Living in New Jersey, it can definitely get really cold, but I try to make an effort to get outside everyday,” she tells us. “Having warm footwear makes a huge difference in my morning routine.”
Her go-to shoes for surviving even the coldest days of the season without going into hibernation mode are Sperry boots. They’re incredibly comfortable, cozy, and can tackle any terrain, snow included. Read on to see how she’s expertly styling them this season.
“Sperry’s Plushwave 3D Boots are the perfect pick for a winter hike,” Whalen explains of her first look. “They’re so comfortable while still keeping my feet warm! I styled them with an all-black look and a bright-pink beanie for a pop of color!”
“I absolutely love the faux-fur accents on Sperry’s Torrent Lace Up Boots,” Whalen exclaims. “I styled them in a casual, everyday outfit I’d typically wear with snow boots. I think a sweater and leggings with a cute pair of snow boots is the most perfect winter OOTD!”
“I styled these sherpa-lined duck boots for a rainy day spent running errands,” she says of her last look. “I love how the blue in my jacket complements the gray boots!” (We’ll also award bonus points for the well-coordinated umbrella addition.)
