Oktoberfest Costumes for folky fun
It have started as a traditional folk festival in Germany, but Oktoberfest is now one of the best-loved annual events around the world. Famous for the large consumption of beer, Oktoberfest is a firm favourite in Australia and gives attendees the chance to dress up in their best Oktoberfest costumes and enjoy a beer or two.
With men's, kids' and women's Oktoberfest costumes available, you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for to make the most of your Oktoberfest experience. So grab yourself a pair of lederhosen, a dirndl, or a beer wench costume and let the festivities commence.
To channel some Alpine chic, lederhosen are perfect. Lederhosen are breeches that are either short or knee-length and held up by two attached straps. These are usually teamed with a white shirt, white socks and a brown hat to complete the outfit. To finish the look, browse the selection of vintage Bavarian pieces for a unique touch to your costume.
For the Frauleins, a beer wench Oktoberfest costume is a great choice. A beer wench, or beer maid, costume comprises of a long or short dress, a white blouse, and a corset-style belt. Look out for gingham prints, collared necklines and detailed embroidery to really nail that Bavarian look.
Fun for the whole family
As well as adult costumes, you'll find costumes for your little boys and girls too, so they can enjoy Oktoberfest in style. Try pairing a frilly Oktoberfest dress with some knee-high white stockings for an adorable girly look, or pick up a pair of boys' lederhosen for an authentic Bavarian vibe.
The finishing touches
When you've got your Oktoberfest costume sorted, adding some accessories will really make you stand out from the crowd. Try picking up a wig for a funny twist, or a Bavarian-style hat for a stylish detail.
