Origin of Steampunk Style

Originated from the 1980s fancy fiction, it has the flavours of Victorian era and residues from science fiction. It is the wave where cyberpunk meets the vintage trends and the technology meets the wizardry of yester years.

I love steampunk art, it is an embodiment of style, patterns from a whimsical era that was once upon a time alien to us. Much depends upon the imagination of an artist and the extra-terrestrial epitome of fantasy. Steampunk differs from traditions and yet represents a bygone era that mimics advancement in science but with steam engines, clockwork and gears.

Steampunk Jewellery for Your Wardrobe


From furniture to home décor centerpieces, you will find the steampunk style everywhere, the steam reminds of the good olden days of steam power. Steam was used to generate power that pulled the trains and vehicles. The ships used to undertake long voyages and explore unknown lands with steam developed technology, mechanical pulleys and friction.


The Victorian designer dresses have a tinge of steam power in them too, you might also find the medieval, renaissance, gothic and retro patterns thrown in the steampunk outfits too. If you ask me, sky is the limit – there is no dearth of limitations on the designer wear that can give rise to steampunk trends. All that goes into the mechanical industry goes to the steampunk style too.


Steampunk jewelry can easily pair with modern clothing. However; it looks heavenly if wore with proper attire. Cufflinks, ear-rings, necklaces and bracelets with gears and clocks just catch my attention. I love them because they are unique, the necklace pendants made of steam gadgets, copper gear and cast iron look awesome. The finish can be hand painted and comes in many shades such as sterling, silver gold and copper green.

Do you think Steampunk represents the patterns of Victorian era?

Yes - the designs are analogous to Victorian patterns

Trendy Steampunk Fashion Trends

How do you define steampunk fashion?

Well, if you see a damsel or dandy dressed in high boots with laces and gears, goggle and monocle, dress that is creative but unusual, the pattern having a tinge of Victorian era and the fusion of technology, you might be witnessing the so called steampunk fashion. If you find it shoddy, it is your problem; the young generation loves it. The neo-Victorian designs are also finding fans in the grannies and grandpas.

Not long ago it was not heard of, today it is suddenly rising in popularity – a fusion of contemporary style with patterns of vintage era. Love the eclectic side of the steampunk; it is always an epitome of art and aesthetics.

Steampunk fashion trends are hard to define, there is no single definition to it. You can call them common or exotic. It can also be a medley of historical patterns, Victorian embroidery and patterns of 19th century usually amalgamated in contemporary fabric. The marriage of steampunk to the modern style of clothing can result in an unexpected beautiful collection of a wardrobe. For example pairing a modern white or cream T-shirt with a Victorian-steampunk skirt in maroon or burgundy shade with heavy embroidery of gears in the lace can create an authentic appearance.
