The main garment is a jumper called Juppe. It has a very short bodice with a rounded neckline that is bordered by an embroidered band. The body of the juppe is made of a finely pleated linen or woolen blend. It is worn over a blouse or chemise with full shoulders, plus an embroidered plastron and kerchief tucked around the back of the neck. The juppe also has a band of a contrasting color inserted somewhat above the knee.
In the middle of the 18th cent. the brown juppe was replaced by a black linen one, under the influence of Spanish fashion. This is the most common juppe worn today, with either a red or black bodice, the black being considered more festive and formal. The blouse is no longer strictly white, but can be made of various different colors. The kneeband continues to be blue, but in modern times it is often worn with an apron. In this first image we can see how the blouse is made.
Besides the festive crown, which was only worn by unmarried girls or brides, a flat straw hat was worn. See the images above and this one.
Besides the straw hat, fur caps, breamokappe, and knitted woolen caps shaped like Hershey's kisses, spitzkappe, were worn, especially in winter. The latter were also known in Tyrol.
Men wore a blue work smock for everyday, and a type of suit with a red vest for more dressy occasions.
In the north of Bregenzerwald, this relatively low lying district has its own new tracht, which includes characteristics of the nearby Rhine valley trachten, including relatively small versions of the radhaube, 'wheel headdress'.
