Since starting at Who What Wear just six short months ago, Aniyah Morinia has low-key been the source of much of my style inspiration. She knows it, too! I stalk her Instagram and TikTok accounts so often that she now expects me to ask where she got her latest outfit or accessory nearly every time she posts new content. But I won’t apologize—the girl has really good style.

Now that it’s finally getting cold in Los Angeles (and by cold, I mean just under 65°), I’m paying even closer attention to Aniyah’s on-trend New York winter ‘fits. One thing all of her recent looks have in common? Converse. From high-top sneakers to leather boots, her new footwear is adding that casual, comfortable, and effortlessly cool vibe that I’m always aiming for with my outfits. BRB—I’ll be copying all three of these looks immediately.

Aniyah’s been prioritizing comfort since moving from Florida to NYC, which explains her gravitation toward Converse footwear. “If it’s not comfortable, I don’t want to wear it,” she tells me. “Now that I’m walking everywhere I go and riding the subway, which requires flights of stairs, I only want to wear shoes that are the perfect blend of stylish and comfortable.” Cue these leather high-top sneakers, which fit her description to a T.

Leather apparel and accessories, like these sneakers, have become a staple in fall and winter wardrobes, so I’m not surprised to see that Aniyah chose this pair. I love the way she styled her new kicks with a trench coat in a similar texture. The fresh white mini skirt brings out the white in the shoe, and the green turtleneck adds that slightly festive element to the look. “I would wear this to see the fall foliage in Central Park,” she tells me. “It’s comfortable and easy to wear but still has that holiday touch. I can already see myself holding a hot chocolate and enjoying the multicolored leaves.”

Next up, Aniyah styles what appears at first glance to be a similar high-top sneaker. Not so! Take a closer look, and you’ll notice this pair features a very on-trend sherpa fabric. Fuzzy coats have been popular for a while now, but this season is all about introducing the plush texture to accessories, from handbags to hats to footwear. “These sneakers feel very seasonal and trendy while still being an easy-to-style, neutral shoe,” Aniyah shares.

Aniyah tells me that she’s been leaning into neutral looks with a fun pop of color lately, which is apparent both here and in her look above. “I kept my outfit pretty simple and subdued because the sneakers make such a statement,” she says. The styling here is also just the right amount of polished thanks to those split-hem trousers, which offer a perfect frame for the sherpa kicks. “I would wear this to any work-related function,” she says. “It’s a casual look, but the blazer coupled with the turtleneck adds a little bit of polish.”

If you didn’t know that Converse made boots, then allow Aniyah and me to really shake up your wardrobe in the best way. The Crafted Chuck Taylor offers the comfort of a sneaker with the edgy look of a combat boot. “These brown leather boots gave me such a confidence boost when I first tried them on, and they’re definitely made for trekking around the city,” Aniyah says. “Chunky soles are everywhere this season, and I’m not complaining about the added height they offer.”

As far as styling goes, Aniyah explains, “I wanted to focus on comfort and a light color palette to make these brown boots the star of the look. The jogger pants hit right at my ankle, allowing for the boots to stand out.” She says this is the perfect outfit for doing all of her holiday gift shopping. We’ll say it again: Comfort is key!
