You don't need to take the boots. It is warm at daytime, and you can wear a T-shirt and a thin coat; but at night, it may be a little cold and you need to take a thick coat like a tick jacket with you.

No. I think it’s a little cold to wear dress in April. You are suggested to take shirts, jeans and thin coat.

You are suggested to go to Huaihai Rd, where many shopping malls are located and the price is reasonable.
Besides, for your 3-day visit, I’d like to give you some suggestion:
You can go to People’s Square, Yuyuan Garden, and Oriental Pearl Tower on the first day;
The second day you can spend on Zhujiajiao Water Town and then back to downtown for shopping;
Finally, you can enjoy the Bund and a cruise on Huangpu River.
Enjoy your time!
