The style of your collar style, low or high, is one way to determine your Oktoberfest appearance. Younger girls are more likely to be traditional. During Oktoberfest, grown women might be more adventurous and joyful.

  • German Trachten Shoes

The majority of German ladies wear black Mary Jane flats with a clasp over the top of their ankles. Some people prefer a “dirndl pump.” This is a shoe with a larger heel and the traditional belt over the top.

  • Flower crown/Cardigan

You can find a variety of flower crowns at stalls during the festival. You can find a lot of really gorgeous traditional jackets and sweaters that look incredibly nice over a dirndl. One of the most important things to know about Oktoberfest before you go is that large bags larger than 3L are not permitted.

  • Lederhosen

Lederhosen actually means “leather pants.” This is the most common dress seen on men during Oktoberfest. They are available in a variety of designs, the most common of which are Bundhosen and Plattlerhosen.

  • Shirt

It is mandatory to wear a shirt beneath your suspenders. Typically, they are adorned with stags and stitched with motifs. Checkered, regular white or beige shirts are typical Oktoberfest shirts. Walking around Oktoberfest in a good collared shirt is a great option.

  • Feathers and Hats

Traditional German Oktoberfest attire for men always comprises a hat. Many locals also prefer to have a vest or a waistcoat complete their look. Knee-high socks are the best bespoke socks to wear with lederhosen.


Wearing dirndls and lederhosen is not mandatory which means there is no formal Oktoberfest attire of any sort to be concerned about. But it is special to be wearing traditional costumes and celebrate them with the people as it is a fun part of the experience.
