On Your Feet
September weather in Wilmington is hard to define – one day you’re cooling off with a refreshing lemonade, and the next you’re ordering something pumpkin-spice flavored. So, what’s a wardrobe to do? The best plan is to prepare for it all, giving you the ultimate fashion flexibility, especially with your footwear.
If the sun is streaming through your window, and a beach day is calling, keep those flat sandals handy. Or better yet, take advantage of late-season sales and scoop up some essentials. Espadrilles are a mainstay style for any summer, and you can’t go wrong with a good neutral.

When the temps start to fall, heels will rise. Still too warm for closed toes, sandals with a chunky heel – think wedge or platform – will be your best friends for cooler days. They’ll also keep your look balanced as fabrics get heavier.

Late September will have you saying au revoir to toes and bonjour to boots. And boy will you have options. Crocs fans and outdoorsy types alike will appreciate the fall’s designer take on wellies and hiking boots. For a harder edge, try a moto or biker boot with a plethora of buckles and straps. Or if you’re loving the high life, continue summer’s platform sandal trend with a platform boot.
