Clothing should be as comfortable as possible. Mornings and evenings can be cold so good jackets will be needed.
Make sure you have a comfortable pair of boots with ankle support. A second pair of boots is always useful in case you happen to get your one pair of boots wet.
Layered clothing is always a good idea as the mornings and evenings can be cool while the middle of the day gets warm.
