What is Steampunk Fashion?
Steampunk style is a post-apocalyptic fashion that comes from both the Industrial Revolution in Europe during the 1800s and the romantic view of the Victorian era.
How do you dress as steampunk?
It’s a style that can mix classy and burlesque with a point of romanticism. The boys are sharp and handsome and the ladies are sexy and gorgeous.
A big part of Steampunk outfits is actually DIY, but still, you can decide to make some of your outfit hand made and buy the other stuff or if you don’t have time to create full new clothing for yourself, that is “OK” because we have done some researches for you.
So, if your next event is Steampunk, and you are not really into DIY, this article is for you.
You will see that some of the products we have decided to put in this list could fairly also fall under other styles like Goth, Punk Rock, Bikers, or even Retro but we kept them there because they did have this Steampunk vibe we were looking for.
We know the purists might not agree with us but we hope everyone will still enjoy the listing as we have found fantastic pieces of clothing!
What do you wear to a steampunk event?
