Dirndl trends 2019 – colours and cuts
Soft colours are hot for costumes in 2019 – everything is about pastel tones and light candy colours. Whoever wants to be trendy with their dirndl this year, must stick to soft spring tones. For 2019 the dirndl designers have been inspired by delicate rose tones, light blue fabrics, as well as saffron yellow, apple green, azure and pastel berry tones. In addition to the classic dirndl dresses, which never go out of fashion, in 2018 as before, the totally trendy costume cut will be the high-necked dirndl. But the basic principle is: if you like it, it‘s in! Every woman should feel comfortable in her dirndl and select the length or the cut that suits her figure best.
This year, however, the trend generally returns to traditional costume and traditional cuts. The dirndl blouses are also kept rather simple in 2019 and are worn in white and without embroidery or other sensational details. Many dirndl designers have made it their task in 2019 to implement traditional cuts in modern ways. Prints as patterns on the dirndl fabrics will become a trend in 2019 again. Some Austrian dirndl designers are particularly keen on deer prints and plaid patterns this year.
Lederhosen trends 2019 – what do I best combine my lederhosen with?
The creative masters have not come up with newly designed leather trousers– Lederhosen 3.0 – this year, but the combination possibilities with the beloved leather can nevertheless be aligned to the current costume trends of 2019. There are various colour possibilities for the men’s leather trousers in 2019: for example, there are models that are brightened with a certain sheen. In addition, 2019 offers darkened lederhosen variants, and for the particularly fashion-conscious a bright grey tone would also be a very good choice.
Lederhosen with embroidery are traditional and always contemporary as well. This year they include even more striking embroidery patterns, particularly from the animal world. Deer prints 2019 are also very popular among the lederhosen models.
In any case, the choice of the dress shirt or matching footwear with the lederhosen combination should always be taken into account. The classic version, which is timeless and always looks good, is the combination of lederhosen with a white shirt. If you really want to go more in the traditional direction, combine a plaid costume shirt with your lederhosen. However, avoid kitschy check shirts with exaggerated extra details such as artificial buttons designed to imitate wooden ones. This comes across as trashy very quickly and has nothing to do with traditional costume.
A topic that opinions continue to differ about sharply is that of which shoes combine best with lederhosen. To start off with, the occasion that you wear your lederhosen to is particularly important. The Oktoberfest 2019 is probably probably the best occasion ever to wear lederhosen with pride again. There are numerous footwear possibilities. The best thing to wear is a pair of brogues, but there are many alternatives. However, you can also make a fatal mistake by combining brogues with lederhosen and omitting the socks! Coarse-knitted woollen costume socks are the best to wear with lederhosen. Yet sneakers can also look really good with lederhosen! Many lederhosen manufacturers have now also designed their own traditional shoe collection. So if you’re planning on acquiring a new pair of lederhosen, let us show you the shoes to combine them with to create a really perfect look for Wiesn 2019!
Alternative Dirndl & Lederhose Costume Trends 2019
Some women and men simply don’t like wearing dirndl or lederhosen, which is also perfectly OK. If you don’t feel like wearing a dirndl, but would still like to design your look in accordance with the 2019 Costume Trends, you should stick to pastel tones anyway. How about the combination of ladies‘ lederhosen with a simple, elegant white blouse and a noble, light grey knitted costume jacket with light pink or light yellow inserts? If you have basics in earth or grey tones at home, you can also combine just accessories such as a handbag, jewellery or a watch in a soft pastel tone and you’ll be dressed up fashionably on the Wiesn 2019. If you don’t like lederhosen, just wear your favourite jeans with a costume jacket. Here it is also important not to mix too many styles in order not to come across as trashy.
In principle you can put together a super beautiful outfit for Wiesn 2019 with a good blouse or a nice shirt. Check blouses are always in demand when it comes to a costume look. Pay particular attention to the processing and the fabric when buying a traditional blouse or shirt, as polyester fabrics can often become very unpleasant when worn on the skin. Finally, Wiesn 2019 will be celebrated for hours with dancing and swaying, which can ake you break out into a sweat very quickly. Blouses and shirts from cotton or linen are better, as they’ll survive the entire Wiesn day and be enjoyed for a long time afterwards.
