Steampunk is a fashion style based on the powered machinery of 19th century steam. It also includes elements of science fiction (lasers, robots, etc.) or technical inventions. Inspire yourself by Jules Verne – the godfather of Steampunk. The word steampunk was first used in the 1980s to describe a low technological variation of cyberpunk, though steampunk has only become popular as a style of clothing at the beginning of the 21st century. So to speak, it is a view of a future. The fashion is inspired by the Victorian era.
Colors in Steampunk clothing
Forget the colorful colors when choosing Steampunk clothing! The bright and dark colors are the best choice! We recommend brown, beige or dark blue. For women, the wine red is a must! Black is best when your steampunk outfit is in the Gothic scene. It is surprising, but you can also put on white clothes. First color them with tea or onion to make them look older. As a pattern, stripes are a trend in steampunk clothing. Notice the fabric too! In the 19th century, fabrics such as taffeta, leather satin or brocade were very popular with elegant outfits.
Ladies Steampunk Clothes
When you hear a Victorian look, you always have a sexy corset in front of your eyes. This part does not have to be missing in the ladies steampunk outfit. The corsage you wear over the blouse and combine with a wide skirt or dress. The shoes must be made of leather. Wide and long skirts describe the steampunk style but very short skirts or sexy underpants are very popular. A bolero leather jacket can complete your outfit.
Men’s Steampunk Clothing
The best men’s steampunk outfit is an undershirt, combined with leather and boot riding pants. Add a lot of metal to this clothing and we guarantee your eye-catching. The vests and the leather coats are a must for the men. For an evening event, put on an elegant tuxedo or three-piece suit.
The accessories for the steampunk outfit
