It’s „O’zapft“ But What Do I Wear? 4 Oktoberfest Looks

All eyes
are on Munich now where the most German of all festivals is taking place: The
Oktoberfest. I went last year to cross it off my “Things I have to do because I’m
German list”. It came right after Wearing
Adidas sandals with white socks at the beach on Mallorca
and Taking part in a sausage eating contest.
(Click here to read about my experience). I’m probably not going again this
year or next year or every year after, even though I had an embarrassingly good
time. Oktoberfest is celebrated in every other city too, I’m probably going somewhere here in Berlin instead. I simply wore my mom’s Dirndl which even she just bought for fun and a
onetime use only – so there’s much room for improvement. 
When it
comes to Okoberfest clothing the dress code can be quite strict: It has to be
somehow traditional and leather pants or a Dirndl are a must. As inspiration I
put together 4 very different looks for the “Wiesn”, of which some are appropriate
in terms of the dress code and some are not, but I’d wear them anyway: 

Black DirndlBow bagLeaf chokerBootsTraditional jacket

I really
love this one! Dirndls usually are very colourful and I really like the idea of
a black and white Oktoberfest outfit. There’s a bit of dark forest green at the
skirt and a leaf choker seemed like a good addition. Since Oktoberfest looks
should be kinda cute I would wear a bow bag as girly but not very girly touch.
Definitely my favourite!

Okay, this
one is over-the-top girly and flowery and the dress is probably too short for
many. It’s nearly Oktoberfest cosplay. But it’s so sweet!

The above
outfit is the opposite of the pink look: Not girly but rather cool with leather
pants and boots. It’s not traditional at all – but with the pattern on the
jacket and a pretzel necklace you could still wear it if you hate putting on a
traditional dress.

And last:
the overly cheesy Bavarian leather pants outfit – with Oktoberfest sneakers!
