thanks in advance
The key to dressing for Alaska is layering. Have a short or long sleeved t-shirt, sweat shirt/hooded sweatshirt and a waterproof jacket/coat and you will be good to go. You can take off or add layers as the weather dictates. The chances of rain are good so the waterproof coat is almost a necessity. Sneakers are fine for normal activities but a pair of good walking shoes or heavier footwear may be needed if you are going to do some hiking or heavier walking on rough surfaces.
If you are from New England you should have all of these things so you won't have much trouble with Alaska.
Take care and enjoy Alaska. It is beautiful.
