Steampunk: If the future had happened sooner (Pt2)

Let’s start with…Fashion!

Basically steampunk dress consists of items of clothing that were worn in the Victorian era, mainly British style, but you get steampunks of all nationalities.

British style Victorian clothing can mean flouncey dresses for the ladies and dashing suits for the gentlemen, but if you’re not into that sort of thing, you can have a lot of fun with your outfits. You could be a Victorian era century aviator, fresh back from your journey to the Amazon, a mad scientist, in the middle of his quest for an elixir of immortality, or just about anything else you can think of!

First off, there is the quintessential steampunk accessory: the goggles. Oh yeah.

You can wear goggles up on top of your head, around your neck, on a hat, or on your eyes, of course…

Shoes
Image google ladies, heeled boots are your friends. Big knee-high buckled leather boots are good also; they can make you look like an air-pirate Very Happy

Dresses/skirts
Image google How awesome does this look? Sticking gears on random bits of steampunky clothing is always a good idea.

Image google OMG, pretty Very Happy Gypsy skirts are a great alternative to dresses, because they are long and swishy and stuff. A decent Victorian lady never shows her bare ankles, mind!

Feathers work also.

Jackets/shirts
Waistcoats PWN, no? Just make sure to wear them over a proper collared shirt, not a t-shirt or a polo. Looks silly.

And you can also add a little more punk to steampunk, of course XD

Keep your eyes peeled (ew) for the next part!
