Woman’s Oktoberfest Outfits Tips
1. Outfit Consists Of: The staple of a woman’s outfit is a tight fitting Bavarian Dirndl dress with an apron tied around it. The Dirndl blouses are normally white with the cut depending on how much cleavage you want to show. Most women show quite a bit of cleavage.
2. Dirndl Bows: Each apron is wrapped and typically tied with bow on the front. Put your bow on the left side if you’re single, the right side if you’re taken, and in the middle if you’re are a virgin.
3. Dirndl Dress Length: An authentic Dirndl dress often goes below the knee, while the Halloween costume-style ones run much shorter like a skirt. It doesn’t really matter which length you go with as both are acceptable, but almost all the Bavarians go with one below the knee. It gets easy to spot the American girls as they are normally the ones with the short, sexy dresses.
4. Shoes: Avoid open-toed shoes because of the amount of beer glasses that get broken inside the beer tents. The most common shoes are either flats or the Mary Jane-style footwear. The local Mary Jane’s have comfortable rubber soles plus cleated heels and toes to make noise while dancing.
5. Female Lederhosen/Hotpants: Becoming more and more common, especially with international visitors, are the female lederhosen. These high-cut suede shorts have suspenders and can be seen as very sexy.
6. Wiesn Glupperl: What the heck is a Wiesn Glupperl? It is a common wooden clothespin decorated with some flair and your first name scorched on with a wood burner. They are a little tacky, but very fun. Both women and men can wear them and it is a great ice breaker. Younger Germans often wear them only to be humorous by using funny fake names or dirty words instead of their real names. There are stands at Oktoberfest selling Wiesn Glupperl and they can etch on your name or funny phrase. HERE is an example.

1. Types of Pants/Lederhosen: Lederhosen are the standard leather shorts, Plattlerhosen are longer and go either to or below the knee, Bundhosen are capri-style pants, and Gauplattlerhosen is a descriptive word meaning that the pants will be more embroidered. The cheaper costume-style outfit often come with no pockets, but the authentic leather ones will have 2-3 pocket.
