All things Steampunk!
From leather and lace, to corsets and tulle, you know a Steampunk dress when you see it. Taking all the best parts of the "Wild West" and Victorian Britain, Steampunk gowns are a mixture of the feminine with masculine details. While it may be relatively easy to incorporate Steampunk attire into your everyday wardrobe, gowns are another story all together. The sheer voluminousness of some of these dresses make them suitable only for special occasions.
Sites like Clockwork Couture, Steampunk Emporium, and users Etsy are doing an amazing job at showcasing their wares. With the rise of Steampunk's popularity and its aesthetics slowly but surely creeping into everyday society, I believe that it soon won't be too unusual too see the SP infiltrate the formal side of style too. Weddings and proms are two of the obvious places that this style can be worn without too much "to do".
The last three below are specifically wedding dress. The thing about deciding on a Steampunk wedding dress is that you are actually kind of encouraged to venture away from the traditional all white get-up. Although, the ones I showcased are white, the have pops of color or unique ornamental fixtures that take them to a whole other level. This first one is my favorite; the addition of the floor length blue coat and the brown leather corset scream SP. I think she beautifully ties the entire look together with her gold jewelry, red lips, and her hair styled in simple loose curls.
