100 years ago as today – a dirndl is and remains a timeless classic that should no longer be missing in any wardrobe. Between tradition and modernity, the dirndl stands as the epitome of customs and love of home and at the same time is a fashionable piece of clothing that simply suits every woman. Here we introduce you to the timeless traditional dress and show you which dirndls are currently popular and where you can buy dirndls online.
Timeless traditional fashion – dream dirndl for women and for every occasion
The dirndl is and remains one of the most popular items of clothing – no wonder, the traditional dress combines traditional elegance with Bavarian joie de vivre and simply looks stunning. Dirndls emphasize the advantages of every woman and are the right choice of clothing for every occasion – whether for Oktoberfest or a wedding. Along with lederhosen, the dirndl is now one of the most famous pieces of Bavarian clothing and embodies the Alpine style like no other.
There are many dirndl styles and there are an infinite number of dirndl styles. Traditionally, a dirndl consists of a bodice, a skirt and an apron – the traditional dresses can vary in length, from mini dirndls to midi dirndls to long dirndls and maxi dirndls, everything is possible. With the mini dirndl, the dirndl ends above the knee, classic and traditional dirndls are usually 85 cm – 100 cm long. Our AlpenHerz models are mostly midi dirndls, which means that the dirndl skirt is 70 cm long.
The bodice should fit as closely as possible to the upper body above the waist and not have any wrinkles so that the cleavage is properly highlighted. Dirndl blouses that are high-necked or have a deep neckline complete the look. The cleavage is the eye-catcher of the traditional look.
The cut fits correctly when it adapts perfectly to the proportions. In our studio in Kempten, a dirndl can be easily adjusted, repaired or changed – upon request, we can also make a dirndl and a second apron made to measure. Our standard skirt length is midi, but we can of course also make a mini dirndl out of it.
Due to the high-quality materials, an AlpenHerz dirndl will last for years. The timeless and simple cut of our classic dirndl without many details makes the traditional dresses easy to change and so the dirndl can last for years. Rich colors like berry, blue or beige never go out of style. But pastel tones always look timeless and elegant. For almost every dirndl, we have opted for an apron made of silk with which a beautiful bow can be tied. The elegant aprons are a real eye-catcher in the traditional outfit and a custom has now developed around the bow. If the bow is on the right, the woman is taken; if the bow is on the left, she is single.
Depending on the model of traditional dress, a dirndl also needs a dirndl blouse that flatters the cleavage. Whether it’s high-necked or with a deep neckline, simple or elaborate, it’s entirely up to your taste. At Oktoberfest 2023 we will see a lot of lace, embroidery and high-necked blouses.
AlpenHerz traditional costume fashion for women – suitable dirndls for every style
But traditional fashion doesn’t always have to consist of dirndls and lederhosen. Traditional costumes for women in particular offer a large selection of stylish accessories and individual pieces that can be combined with different outfits.
If you don’t feel like wearing a dirndl, you can also create a fashionable traditional outfit using our AlpenHerz traditional skirts. In combination with a traditional blouse, a top or body, the mix of tradition and modernity is successful. Like the midi dirndl, the traditional skirts have a midi skirt length and can swing really nicely while dancing. This look is suitable for any occasion, whether for Oktoberfest or as a dress code for a wedding.
