The Steampunk look combines Victorian attire with a raw industrial feel. The beauty of Western European clothes is combined with the dusty, austere, rigid, chilly, and scientific air of fantasy literature and the technological revolution in Steampunk Fashion. As a result, the principal accessories of Steampunk are cogs, gears, keys, chains, pocket watches, hats, goggles, and so on. This distinguishing feature has characterized the Steampunk movement for years, and it can be clearly identified even by those who are not interested in certain subcultures. Another distinguishing feature of this movement is its distinct color palette, which includes sepia, browns, oranges, greys, and autumn-inspired hues.
Numerous twists and takes, however, have affected many sub-genres of Steampunk, such as the goth subculture and the cyberpunk subculture, where alternative color schemes predominate. It’s not unusual to see these kinds of combinations, and you’ll learn more about them in our section on Steampunk subgenres.
But what exactly is steampunk?
Steampunk is a literary trend in which stories are set in an alternate Victorian era in which technology is generally just as sophisticated as in our contemporary world, with the exception that it uses steam (steam) as the energy source rather than oil or electricity. Steampunk is an aesthetic style inspired by 19th century London fashion, but with retrofuturistic or mechanical aspects.
