Entry ticket? Check. Megabus booking? Check. Clothes? Not so much. The festival is known for its laidback style, but Manchester’s famously unpredictable weather can make it difficult to decide on an outfit when you’re spending the weekend in a field. If you’re still thinking of what to wear to Parklife, check out our guide to staying stylish when the festival returns to Heaton Park on the 11th and 12th June.
Top 5 Style Tips
Although sunshine may have been forecast, let’s face it – its Manchester not Magaluf. Be prepared and stay dry with a waterproof jacket or pac-a-mac. You’ll be grateful when you’re not sobbing and soaked through.
Shorts might be a festival staple for guys and girls, but Parklife makes it easy to stand out from the crowd, safe in the knowledge that you’re ending the day with a proper shower. Feel free to wear pretty much whatever you want as you have the luxury of going home or to a hotel at the end of the night.
When it comes to footwear, go for wellies, boots or trainers that are on-trend whilst being comfy. There’s always a chance your shoes will get wrecked so go for a pair you won’t miss. This is not the place for your Yeezy Boosts.
Instead of sticking valuables in your pockets, keep your essentials safe and handy in a bum bag or cross-body bag. Backpacks may be cool but they also happen to be bulky and are an easier target for pickpockets.
Sunglasses and hats are great for shielding you from the sun and upping your style game when you’re spending all day outdoors. Choose cheap sunglasses you won’t mind losing when the crowd goes crazy as Major Lazer hit the stage.
With your style in check, you can lose yourself in the buzz of Parklife. There’s bound to be photos bombarding your Facebook feed, so make sure you look the part.
