Socks Variety for Traditional German Outfits

Socks Variety

Your Oktoberfest look is incomplete until you accessorize it with the right pair of Bavarian socks. These socks come in various materials such as nylon, cotton, and wool, serving functionality and adding style to your overall look. You will also find a wide range of color options for lederhosen and dirndl socks perfectly paired with traditional Bavarian footwear. However, there are some rules of thumb that you need to follow while wearing Bavarian lederhosen socks to respect the originality of the Traditional German outfit.
Men’s Lederhosen Socks

Two common types of socks variety for Men's Lederhosen available are: 

Loferl - A Must-Have for Men's Calves 

The widely famous "Loferl," also known as calf warmer, comes in two parts: "Stutzn" or "Beinhosl," which are worn on the strongest part of the calf. The other part, socks or "Füßlinge," is not usually visible in the lederhosen shoes. Initially, these hand-knitted Loferl were worn without socks, but not everyone could wear them because the weather may get harsh on some days. 

These Loferl are suggested to be worn only with short Lederhosen that exposes the calf part of the men's leg. The rule of thumb is to show off the skin part of the man's leg between the two parts of Loferl; the first part covers the calf, and the other part covers the ankle. 

You will find unlimited color and design options when selecting the right pair of your Loferl. Make sure you choose the right pair based on your traditional German costume. Another important thing while pairing your Loferl is to select the right pair of Lederhosen shoes. When it comes to styling and respecting the originality of Loferl, only traditional shoes, i.e., Haferl shoes, can do the justice. No other shoe options like slippers and trainers can go halfway if you are looking for a shoe alternative for these Loferl. 

Traditional Knee Length Socks

These commonly worn traditional knee-length Bavarian socks are designed to compliment your German attire. These cotton socks allow your skin to breathe throughout the Wisen festival. For the warmer seasons, wool-made knee-length Bavarian socks are also available to keep you cozy. 

You will stay comfortable wearing these traditional socks by pairing them with short leather pants or knee-length Lederhosen. Practically, these knee-length socks are worn with full-length Lederhosen. You can always roll them down during the day and pull them back again at night, as per weather conditions. 

Trachten keen-length socks often come with rustic knitted patterns in white, gray, brown, or green colors. Make sure you choose the ones that fit well with your lederhosen style and the types of lederhosen shoes you wear.
