What Is Steampunk

What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is often referred to as the “greatest era that never was.” Set in the late 19th century, it encompasses all of the romanticism of the Victorian Era. Steampunk Clothing is becoming increasingly popular worldwide and The Burlesque Boutique stocks both men and womens Steampunk Clothing and Outfits. Steampunk has elements of Burlesque and Gothic with the corset being one of the main parts of your costume.
Coluors are commonly neutral, browns, blacks, creams and gold/bronze. Outfits are often put together by at least one prominent accessory, such as goggles, parasols, top hats.

A typical Steampunk costume is usually a dress or skirt again earthy neutral colours complete with a lacy petticoat or bloomers/pantaloons teamed with a Steampunk style corset either overbust or under-bust, and some sort of Steampunk headwear, often a small, feminine top hat or a floral pin. 

Outerwear often includes riding jackets, flight jackets, and carriage coats. Elegant gloves are a also common sight for any Steampunk Lady!
We really hope this little blog will help you choose your Steampunk Outfit and gives you a bit of a heads up on the awesome Steampunk Look!
