Steampunk Outfit

I found this outfit on Tomboy Femme and convulsed in my seat a little bit so I decided to contact the girl wearing it.

Her name is Patrice Lighter, and it turns out that she has reason to dress up all awesome because she’s a singer/songwriter in New York. This outfit is inspired by the steampunk style without going overboard; we got the classic black and white colors, the leather, and the glasses, perfect for wherever your adventures may take you. I haven’t seen anyone do steampunk and not look like a dork, which makes this outfit all the more dope.


Sunglasses: Steampunk sunglasses from an East Village thrift shop
Shirt: Brooks Brothers Boy’s
Suspenders: Dad’s wedding suspenders
Pants: Land’s End Canvas pants
Shoes: Sperry Topsider
