Officially only 2 weeks away from the Rare Dirndl Debut in Munich at the 1st Münchener Trachtentage and I’m putting together a list of what to pack and there are 4 accessories I know I have to bring to go with my dirndl. Wouldn’t go without them!
My sister is currently obsessed with bracelets and for good reason; a fabulous bracelet is the perfect accessory for any outfit, including a dirndl. My fav at the moment is my DAVI bracelets. They are simple in design, but kickass in its use of stones, leather and beads. These little accessories bring a hard rocker edge to the flirty-ness of a dirndl, like with the Wicked Garden Dirndl!
If your anything like me, during this time of year, I am always cold! However as long as my feet and chest are warm, I’m alright. Thats why my next must have is a scarf, but not just any scarf. I am loving the Alpenkult Trachten Loop! Using some traditional dirndl fabrics and some modern its the perfect way to keep warm and add to your dirndl look. Although the company is based in Austria, now worries… they ship to the US! My fav is the “Siberkuh“. Paired with the Black Hole Sun dirndl… Perfection!
All Rare Dirndls have a pocket, which is sooooo great for the little things you carry around all the time, but some things are just too big! Thats where your purse comes in and there are two styles that are must haves. 1st is the Rare Lederhosen Purse. This bag is an instant attention grabber and just too cute to pass up! Its big enough to hold whatever you might need and then some and accents the German look perfectly.
2nd is Trachten Purse from Bergland Trachten. I choose this one because its small and has a shoulder strap. Perfect for festivals where your dancing, having it over your shoulder frees up your hands and its size forces you to only take what you really really need, so your not weighed down.
Unless your at the beach in your dirndl, your gunna need some shoesies! At the moment, I’m obsessed with my TOMS wedges. These are so comfortable and super easy to walk in. One word… LOVE. Mine are black, but at the moment they only have the chestnut color available. However, thats also a fab color for dirndls! I’m sure there are also other shoe brands that carry a similar style, but I’m telling ya… they are a great dirndl shoe!
So there you have it, the 4 things I know I’m going to be packing to take with me to Germany for the Münchener Trachtentage!
