A Mini Dirndl is a particularly short Dirndl with a mostly deep, round or angular neckline, which is especially popular with younger women. Just like the classic Dirndl, this variant is optically determined by the high waisted skirt and complemented by an apron.
Newfound Trachten fashion: How did the Mini Dirndl come about?
While the traditional Dirndl looks back on a long history reaching to the 19th century, the so-called Mini Dirndl is a relatively new version of the popular alpine Trachten dress.
The success story of the Dirndl began as a simple maid dress, which was made of linen fabric or cotton. By young ladies, who discovered the Dirndl as a summer dress in the cities of the alpine region, the trend also moved to the upper classes. This evolution lead to these garments being manufactured and garnished more and more elaborately.
In the course of time, the ankle-length Dirndl developed mini or midi versions, with short Dirndl being especially popular among younger women. To this day the high-necked Dirndl are worn to traditional events or celebrations with a Christian background, such as visits to churches, consecration, processions, or weddings.
On what occasions does a short Dirndl fit?
The Dirndl in mini, midi or even in the classic, high-necked cut is currently as fashionable as at hardly any other time. Women from all over the world have been wearing colorful variations and sexy cuts of the original work dress for events such as clubs, private parties, loose street parties or at big funfairs - or as Germans say: Volksfeste - such as the Oktoberfest or the Cannstatter Wasen.
Even for club celebrations, football events like the European or World Championship or just a hot summer day, beautiful Mini Dirndl fit perfectly, as they are airy, sexy and modern. In addition, hardly any other piece of clothing is as representative as a typical German Tracht, yet so versatile.
