Oktoberfest 2015 – Work that traditional costume!In a flap about what to wear to Oktoberfest? We are here to provide some last minute inspiration for the “Wiesn” [the square where Oktoberfest takes place], and to give away a few secrets to complete your striking seasonal outfit.
What makes Oktoberfest special? We instantly think of brass bands, beer, roasted almonds and going on the ferris wheel. A Bavarian traditional costume is just as important, however. But does it always have to be the classic dirndl dress? Can you mix it up with a little daring when choosing an Oktoberfest outfit? I’m sure you’ve guessed what we think: of course! As long as you feel comfortable, anything goes, and even with a dirndl there are interesting ways to become a real Oktoberfest head-turner! This dark, mysterious creation by Krüger Dirndl Feelings is not your usual “Wiesn” number, but for those who like all things black, it’s sure to be a hit.
Things are getting more colourful with the current on-trend colours this Oktoberfest season: it’s going green! We particularly like the mix of traditional costume with modern influences. A real eye-catcher is this stunning specimen by Krüger Dirndl from the collection “Feelings”, in a tradition dirndl red, perfectly harmonising with the green tones. The fine details make the dress a real head-turner!
A long-running favourite is the more playful, girly dirndl. And just among ourselves, ladies; have you not always wanted to look like a princess? With this costume you’ll become exactly that, a “Wiesn” princess. We especially like the ribbons on the chest of this pink dirndl by Krüger, and the chequered pattern – incidentally you’ll come across a lot of this pattern at this year’s Oktoberfest.
STYLISH IN LEDERHOSEN
Not too keen on the princess look, girly costumes and playful dresses? No problem! We have an alternative at the ready for you, in which you can still look both traditional and stylish! This chic white blouse plays with detail, and is ideally suited to rock-style lederhosen in black. The two ribbons at the leg keep it beautifully feminine – a real eye-catcher! You can also make the most of the festivities and wear a traditional corset instead of a blouse. The snugly fitted garment can also of course be worn without the apron. The closely-tailored top looks particularly good with cut-off jeans.
MEN HAVE IT EASY!
Of course, men always have it easy! They simply need a shirt and matching lederhosen – that’s all they have to do to put an outfit together. Here, on-trend green colours also crop up, as well as trendy chequered patterns. And the traditional playful pattern on the lederhosen can’t be forgotten!
One thing is always on trend every year at Oktoberfest, and once again this year will be right at the heart of the action: having fun, and enjoying yourself! In other words: order yourself another beer in true Bavarian style – “No a Maß, biddscheen!”
