Oktoberfest – Parade, music, food, repeat
The world’s largest ‘Volksfest’ filled with beer, festival and a travelling funfair, is here. Held annually in Munich, Germany, it is a 16 to 18-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend of October. Uh, did we say September? We sure did. Let’s pack our bags and fly all the way to Germany. But are you wondering what clothes and fashion styles to look out for? Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child; we have got a plan for you.
They say, when in Rome do as the Romans do. So in Germany, dress like the Germans do. Have a look at these fall fashion trends and get going for Oktoberfest’16 sporting the latest trends in fashion.
How To Pack Like A Pro
First things first, decide whether you are a wheelie-suitcase kind of gal or the soft, squishy holdall-loving type. If you’re looking for an upgrade (er, always), go for a chic understated fashion trend – a color-blocked case or holdall. To keep your clothes smelling fresh like a daisy, add in a scented lavender bag. Just don’t forget to set your dirty laundry aside to keep the smell as it is.
Talking about Germany, a classic suitcase would do best for autumn. But the question is, what are the fashion trends in Germany? Not to worry, we are here to sort that out for you.
- Summer Hat
Who doesn’t love the beach? You don’t want to be missing out on packing some trendy clothes suitable for a dip in the sea. Savor the sunny German afternoon of fall with the all-time classic, aviators. Pair them with beach shorts and a loose contrasting blouse to make you feel ‘entspannt’ (relaxed). A quirky summer hat would add to your look and act as the ultimate travel essential. This is also a good time to flaunt your beach accessories like bracelets, anklets and headgears in bright shades and relish the fall.
Brunch In Munich
- Denim Jumpsuit/Dungarees
- Round Neck Top
Well, a lazy late breakfast on a holiday is a sure thing. Brunch out on famous German delicacies like the ‘Apfelkuchen’, ‘Bratwrust’, ‘Hendl’ while flaunting some hot fashion trends. Wear an all-day denim jumpsuit and loose, round neck norm-core top. Pair the outfit with white sneakers for a chic look. Dressing for brunch should be about looking casual yet fashion-savvy. Match the free-flowing bubbly with a leisurely look, while still maintaining a polished style.
- Ripped Denims
- Long Jacket
- Loose Shirt
- Sling Bag
Go tranquil chic while you explore the city. Heels are a big no-no considering the cobbled streets of Germany. Ripped denims and a long, contrasting long jacket with a light-colored shirt (preferably white) should make you the Elka Sommer of the latest trends in fashion. Add a dainty sling bag and lady, you are good to go.
Not everyone gets a chance to don a traditional outfit on a vacay. But Oktoberfest is known for attendees in traditional Bavarian outfits, so consider taking part yourself. Dressing locally will help you blend in better and flaunt some new fashion styles. The dirndl consists of a bodice, blouse, full skirt and apron. While appearing to be simple and plain, a properly made, modern dirndl may be quite expensive as it is tailored and sometimes cut from costly hand-printed or silk fabrics. Accessories could include a long apron tied around the waist, a waistcoat or a wool shawl.
