3 Events to Wear Lederhosen

Wear Lederhosen

Lederhosen are the traditional clothing of Bavarians and have been for the better part of the last two centuries. Invented by the peasants of Europe in the late 1700s, Lederhosen gained popularity in the Rococo period when the noblemen of Germany and Austria started wearing them to emulate the lifestyle of the Bavarian peasants. These Lederhosen were made from finer quality of leather such as deer skin and added an element of class to the attire.

Even though Lederhosen were invented to be a casual everyday wear which provided comfort and flexibility for chores, they have grown to become classy and elegant Bavarian attire that are worn to prestigious events. The most notable of these events is Oktoberfest which is a historic Bavarian cultural event that started with the wedding of King Ludwig I. However, as the traditional garb of Bavaria, the Lederhosen are worn to several other occasions. Let us take a look at the top three occasions where wearing Lederhosen is a must!

Lederhosen at Oktoberfest

German Lederhosen have been worn ever since the first Oktoberfest which took place back in 1810. The Bavarians gathered in the grounds outside the city dressed in their Lederhosen and since then, it has become an undying tradition to dress up in traditional attire every year for Oktoberfest. Today, Oktoberfest is the site for some of the best and most stylish Lederhosen in modern times. People from all over the world dress up in authentic and traditional Lederhosen to show their understanding and appreciation for the Bavarian culture and come together in celebration.

In fact, Lederhosen are purchased just for Oktoberfest so that people can experience the event to its fullest. From cow hide to deer skin, Lederhosen of all types are worn to Oktoberfest and in various colors and designs. The most common colors for Lederhosen to be worn to Oktoberfest are shades of brown, tan and black with gray being the most prevalent. Wearing traditional colors gives a more authentic feel to the Lederhosen and just as well, since bright colored Lederhosen are looked down upon by the locals.

Lederhosen at Halloween

Halloween is another great event to which to wear your authentic Lederhosen since it has a long and fascinating history in Bavaria. Bavarians wear Lederhosen to Halloween parties since the Lederhosen can also be considered a costume. The Lederhosen worn to Halloween are more towards the black and gray spectrum, in order to keep with the spirit of the holiday but many people also wear brown and tan Lederhosen as well. The best Lederhosen for sale are usually available online at the Lederhosen Store during Halloween and Oktoberfest seasons and you can purchase authentic Bavarian shirts to complete your Lederhosen outfit.

Lederhosen at Weddings

Lederhosen are always worn to special occasions and what’s more special than a wedding?! It’s almost fitting as well that Bavarians have kept up the tradition of wearing Lederhosen to weddings since the first time the Lederhosen actually gained traction was when the locals of Bavaria wore them to the wedding of King Ludwig to Princess Therese (which also laid the foundation for Oktoberfest). Today, authentic Bavarian weddings will see only the best Lederhosen around while women will be wearing dirndl dress.

These were just some of the events to which you can (and should) wear Lederhosen in Bavaria. After all, there’s not many chances to get your Lederhosen out of the wardrobe so be sure to wear them every chance you get.
