The Bavarian Lederhosen has a long and rich history which extends back to the 18th century. But even though this traditional clothing originated centuries ago, the fashion trends of Lederhosen have evolved with the changing times. This is evident by the scores and scores of Lederhosen outfits we see every year at Oktoberfest, which is the world’s largest beer festival that takes place in Munich.
People from all over the world come to the event dressed in traditional Lederhosen and dirndl dress, yet there are many new designs and styles that give the traditional garb a more contemporary look. In fact, the prevailing style of Lederhosen change every year with the fashion trends and more innovative styles can be seen at each Oktoberfest that add modernity yet do not take away from the traditional look of the garment.
One of the best ways to enhance the look of your Lederhosen outfit is to pair it with Lederhosen accessories that complete the Bavarian look. The fashion of wearing accessories with the Lederhosen outfit is subject to as much change of fashion trends as the Lederhosen themselves. So let us take a look at some of the trending Lederhosen accessories to wear to Oktoberfest 2020.
OKTOBERFEST LEDERHOSEN OUTFITS
Traditional Lederhosen Shoes
One of the most essential accessories to complete the German Lederhosen outfit is the traditional Lederhosen shoes. These shoes are made from suede leather that comes in evocative deep brown colors. These colors complement the look of the Lederhosen that are traditionally shades of brown, tan and black. These Lederhosen shoes are oxford style shoes with laces and sometimes even beautiful embroidery on their side that adds to the design. Wearing Lederhosen shoes is all the more essential since slippers or casual footwear is seen as disrespectful and distasteful to the traditional Bavarian outfit.
Bavarian Lederhosen Loferl
Once you have the shoes, it’s time to add loferl to your authentic Lederhosen outfit. The traditional loferls are not just a stylish addition to your Lederhosen outfit but are greatly functional. They come in two parts, the calf warmers and the ankle socks. The calf warmers are in fact quite useful in keeping your legs warm when you wear Lederhosen in the winter season.
The Lederhosen Store offers Lederhosen loferl made out of 100% wool and nylon, with stylish designs and patterns woven into the fabric. The loferl add an exciting new aspect to your Lederhosen
Checkered Bavarian Shirt
The checkered Bavarian shirt goes well with the Lederhosen. This shirt is not only essential to the Lederhosen outfit as a whole but also adds style, elegance and glamour to the outfit. Just like casual footwear, wearing t-shirts under your Lederhosen is seen as disrespectful by the locals and shows ignorance towards the local culture.
The Bavarian checkered shirt is the right option to wear under the Lederhosen since the striking colors of the shirt can complement the brown and tan shades of the Lederhosen. At the Lederhosen Store, you will find many checkered Bavarian shirts bundled with Lederhosen for sale since these two items are always worn together. The Bavarian checkered shirts are simple button downs that add class and elegance to your outfit and you are sure to see these everywhere at this year’s Oktoberfest.
These were just some of the Lederhosen accessories that are going to be trending at Oktoberfest 2020. Be sure to wear each one to stand apart from the crowd and make the most of your Oktoberfest experience.
