Are you looking for an Oktoberfest costume? Whether you're attending an Oktoberfest festival or simply looking for a fun costume for Halloween or another occasion, you're sure to enjoy dressing up like a Bavarian barmaid in a cute dirndl dress.
What to Wear for Oktoberfest
The best option for women when dressing up for Oktoberfest is a dirndl style dress. The basic dirndl is a dress with a close-fitting bodice and full skirt gathered at the waist, usually about knee-length. The material is colorful and can be strikingly patterned, often with bold details like braiding and piping. The bodice is worn over a frilly peasant blouse, usually white, and the skirt is covered in turn by a colorful apron.
To be really traditional, women may also wear a choker that features an Edelweiss pendant. They can further accessorize with chain necklaces that are covered in hunting prizes, such as a deer horn or bear claw.
Buying Oktoberfest Costumes
If you are Bavarian, or want to dress the part in a costume that is traditional, go to our Oktoberfest Products, where you'll find a large selection of dirndls in all sizes. Some of the prices are a bit steep, which is to be expected when you are going the more traditional route. However, most are made of nontraditional polyester, which does make for easier care.
If you want your costume simpler and sexier, you can also shop on our Oktoberfest Products, which includes an off-the-shoulder top, lace-up bodice, short green skirt and petticoat. We also have several choices of Beer Garden Girl costumes, all of which are very sexy and feature miniskirts.
