In 2010, Oktoberfest — the world’s largest fair held annually in Germany — celebrated it’s 200th year. That’s TWO HUNDRED YEARS of beer, yummy food, and general merriment. What started as a wedding celebration in 1810 has evolved into a 16-day festival attended by more than 6 million people. Not too shabby!
A globetrotting friend of mine went to Oktoberfest a couple of years ago and posted pictures on Facebook of her and a friend looking super cute in their festival dirndls. You may not be able to work the traditional German dress into your regular wardrobe rotation (if you can, I’d really like to see pictures!), but Oktoberfest actually brings a lot of very wearable and accessible style to the table.
With Oktoberfest ending this Sunday, October 6, don’t miss out on your chance to add some Oktoberfest-inspired pieces to your wardrobe!
