Depending on how you want to work in your Dirndl, you should opt for the appropriate colors and cut. This year, traditional bold colors like red and green as well as powdery pastel colors like pink, nude and light blue are quite popular. When choosing shades, especially your hair color plays an important role, together with the skin and eye color.

The high-necked V-neck dress has just made its comeback and adds extra elegance, especially in its bodice variation. From cotton, suede, linen or fine silk, it looks just stunning. The dirndl blouses have done a lot this year. Ruffles and lace are definitely a must. It is mainly white cotton blouses worn, which can be up to the taste with puffed sleeves or high-necked. The half-length sleeves in narrow cut are again in vogue, even better if they are made of lace. In addition, short winglets are again preferred. These are particularly effective when worn with high-necked dirndl blouses.

Even the costume in solid colors is totally in and creates more freedom when it comes to jewelry, shoes and accessories. In addition, monochrome Dirndl are universal and can fit quite well on many other occasions.

Top aprons are pretty popular in the new season and a perfect idea to give your dirndl a fresh, romantic look. In wedding dresses they can also be embroidered abundantly.

And the Mini Dirndl, which should have at least 50-60 cm in length, has finally arrived. Although one should say in advance that it is only for the very young Madl can be considered.

All dirndls can be worn with a traditional national costume vest or jacket. Even chic leather jackets are not a bad idea. They even make for a slightly rocky note at the Oktoberfest.

Hair accessories and hairstyles

Flower decoration for the hair is the classic and in the form of a flower wreath a great alternative to braiding. Casual braids and herringbone braids are of course very popular, just like the Bauernzopf, the Zopfkranz and the classic, Bavarian Dutt. Incidentally, this can easily be conjured up with the help of an artificial braid. Velor, leather or velvet hairbands are a great complement to most festive hairstyles.

Shoes, bag and jewelry

When it comes to shoes for a dirndl, the ghosts often part. Boy Wiesn-goers Chucks, ballerinas and even white sneakers are more of a preference in recent years because they are comfortable and practical. But when it comes to the perfect look, chic pumps, strappy shoes and laced boots are recommended. A thick platform heel is a good compromise.

When costumes jewelry is often: less is more! A neck or choker necklace with rural motifs such as edelweiss, acorns or the classic pretzels as well as similar earrings are always very well. Of course, you should also think of the classic charivari – a little chain under the dirndl neckline.

The color of the shoes best match that of the apron

The dirndl loop and its meaning

And do you already know the unwritten law of the dirndl loop? This reveals the marital status of their wearer and is therefore of great importance in Flirtversuchen at the Oktoberfest. To avoid misunderstandings, you should already bind your dirndl loop to the right side, namely:

  • Left bound loop means you are single;
  • right bound loop means you are already forgiven or even married;
  • center tied loop stands for maiden or, in some ways, for absolute freedom of movement.

The dirndl bow is traditionally laced at the waist and ironed perfectly before. The lacing is similar to that of shoes only in a fine and very smooth shape.

Dirndl bows are always good to see and often provide a fresh color accent

  • Free shoulders – Carmen blouses are often out of place here, except for the high-necked dirndls
  • Flip flops and too high boots, overknees or pumps with too high heels
  • a too short dirndl – very impractical while partying and dancing on the tables
  • cheap version made of organza or shimmering polyester
