Long dresses with velvety skirts, parasols with intricate details, lace fans and other attire is available for women to wear. Corsets are often placed over skirt and blouse to show the vintage feel. While the victorian era was a time when modesty was respected, the femininity of the wearer is still accentuated.
Men buy steampunk attire in assortments of spats, boots, vests, trousers, top hats, goggles and aviation helmets as well. To complete the look, some even choose to accentuate the positives of their outfits with a cane, gear and cog to give more authenticity to the look. Gears and pocket watches are also often included for a man’s steampunk look.
