Steam punk clothing though shows less practicality, it has all the charm to attract any gothic lover who has a special attraction for Victorian characters. With a little effort one can bring certain level of practicality in these outfits and create an easy ward robe for this fashion. If you are not so practical about your clothes and love to roam in your dream world then steam punk is the fashion to make you happy. But there is all probability to bring certain level of practicality to it through a combined fashion.
You can go for keeping a few things belonging to this Victorian style and go on matching with other fashion for creating a real fashion of every day. Going pure steam punk really costs a lot but adding other accessories with this fashion or getting simple really costs less. I always prefer going simple with this fashion as I do not love to spend much on my clothing. So I got a new technique to going simple steam punk with less expensive accessories and foot wears from other fashions. You can get a number of Steam punk skirt or trousers with you. Then no need to go for any specially designed top, you can have the simple men’s formal shirt basically of white color to create a striking Victorian look. Having a leather belt really looks great with it and you can add one or two leather belts to your wardrobe. You can deduct the leather pouch as it costs a little high but if you find the right shop for it you can even get within $15. A simple pair of leather sandal can also complete the look. You can go for either a leather sandal or shoes with high bottom that also make the style simple and will keep you light on your fashion.
I always prefer going lighter with steam punk as I just get suffocated with the heavy clothing. You can try this for getting lighter with these steampunk clothing yet you can be a gothic.
