The dirndl is a traditional dress made from loden cloth consisting of a close-fitted bodice over a blouse, with a wide skirt and an apron. It is one of the folk costumes native to southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Italian province of South Tyrol. These dresses accompany the male attire called lederhosen. The word ‘dirndl’ comes from Bavarian-Austrian word ‘dirn(e)’ which means ‘young girl’. It was commonly worn by working women in plain colours. Only in the 1870s was the dirndl adapted by the Austrian upper class and made an item of high fashion.

On a darker note, the folk costume plays a large role in Third Reich propaganda, worn by German women in Nazi Germany to represent a model of femininity and fertility. Judging by the recent trend of dirndls, they are now a back in fashion item as their more negative associations have faded. Every lass now rocks out her best dirndl dress to celebrate Oktoberfest. Every maiden wants to impress with her best dirndl as “traditional” is now in fashion.

There are so many variations to the dirndl costume, from the hemline falling to the thigh rather than the calf or ankle, or off-the-shoulder and low-cut blouses, worn with bright and embellished aprons. From rhinestones to ruffles, there are so many ways to wear a dirndl to make it fun, fashionable and flirty. There is also the urban myth that the way one ties their apron bow indicates whether you are married or single – right to show you are taken, or left to say you’re single. Myth or not, you can always carry on this tradition by tying your bow to show your relationship status – just make sure you tie the correct side to send out the right message!
