As steampunk uses aspects of Victorian fashion mixed with punk, so I feel it is important to research the styles of both fashions to be able to recreate them effectively. So here’s a look at Victorian fashion.

Women had to have their legs completely covered either by black stockings or later in the century, pants known as bloomers. The dressed and sleave where quite big and puffy and they used alot of lace.The wealthy would wear silk stockings to cover their legs and the lesser wealthy would wear woolen socks. They would aslo wear corsets and blouses to give them a very pinched look

Men and women would accessories with a walking stick, with some sticks containing compartments for holding things like vials of perfume.Eye glasses were worn but not to correct vision but to accessories with and outfit. Sometimes the glass would be removed and just the frame was worn.
