What is Steampunk Fashion?

Steampunk Fashion
Steampunk Fashion

Steampunk fashion is a subculture of steampunk drawing inspiration in clothing and accessories from the 19th century Victorian clothing and industrial machinery. Most Steampunk fashion designs also include elements of a post apocalyptic age giving it a retro futuristic look. Long overcoats, tweeds, suspenders, waistcoats, trousers and shirts are some of the common elements for mens clothing. Pea coats, riding jackets, flight jackets, carriage coats,corsets, long and short bustle skirts, laced up boots are some of the common elements for womens clothing. 

This is usually accessorized with other elements from the 19th century Victorian era fashion such as top hats, bowler hats, goggles, sun glasses, jewelry, watches etc. Additions and slight modifications are made to the aesthetics of the steampunk outfits in order to provide a retrofuturistic look.

Early enthusiasts often added a personal touch to their outfits by manually searching for materials in pawnshops, thrift stores and other places. But ever since the popularization of this genre, in the early 2000s, steampunk clothing and accessories can be purchased directly from shops or online websites. These online websites also provide a platform for steampunk enthusiasts to display and sell their products to people all over the world. 

The colors used in steampunk fashion are inspired by the main theme of the genre. Muted and neutral colors are most commonly used with brown and shades of brown as the main theme. The aesthetics also use elements and colors from the industrial machinery of the industrial era. Bronze, brass, steel, red(as that of exposed brick) are some of the other colors associated with steampunk. More modern steampunk fashion draws inspiration from steampunk science fiction and may also include bright colors such as blue and orange. 

Evolution of Steampunk Fashion

The most early literary influences on the aesthetics of steampunk fashion came from the works of 19th century writers such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Canon Doyle and G. K. Chesterton. These authors are best known for works such as Treasure Island, Sherlock Holmes and The Man Who Was Thursday. Early steampunk fashion was heavily inspired by these works and incorporated the fashion sense portrayed in them with slight modifications to the attire.

Morlock Night Steampunk Fashion

Recent steampunk fashion designs are based on the more modern works by authors such as K. W. Jeter. His 1979 novel Morlock Nights is arguably the first ever steampunk novel and marks the beginning of modern steampunk fashion. Steampunk fashion, nowadays, incorporates more elements from the steampunk fiction genre including fantasy and alternate history.

Many enthusiasts add steampunk elements to their day to day attire. Retrofuturistic watches, chains made from gears and cogs, top hats with retro goggles are some easy ways to accessorize your attire in a steampunk manner. Many artists and fashion enthusiasts also come up with different personas of steampunk based characters and design their costumes accordingly. 

With the increasing amount of steampunk fiction and fantasy the number of personas associated with this genre has also increased.

Steampunk Explorer is a common persona used by steampunk fans.  Pith helmet, brass telescope and binoculars are the defining features of this persona. Another common persona used by steampunk fans is that of The Gentleman. It incorporates features such as long coats worn over suspenders and a formal shirt. The outfit is modified to display futuristic instruments and mechanical augmentations. Other common personas include mad scientists and engineers. 

An air pirate is one of the more recent personas associated with this genre. The costume is based on the sea pirates of the late 18th century and early 19th century. The outfit is modified by adding a dash of feathers, a pirate’s hat, a sword and a belt with a futuristic gun and holster. Another persona inspired by steampunk fiction is that of an Air military aviator. Military aviation or bomber jackets, tight fitting items made from leather(boots, belts, lanyards etc.), a military hat and retro futuristic weapons are some of the common ways to copy this persona. These attires or outfits can be seen in steampunk, anime or cosplay conventions.
