Steampunk Cufflinks To Accentuate Your Steampunk Fashion

Steampunk fashion exists because of a subgenre in science fiction. Books are a blending of science and romance with particular attention to the industrialisation era of Europe. The fashion is based on a post-apcalyptic era where clothing, hairstyles, jewellery and body modifications are essential to the proper fashion. Along with jewellery many steampunk shirts of high fashion require steampunk cufflinks to complete the ensemble.

The Steampunk Movement

History accepts the first novel of Steampunk subgenre was Kevin Jeter's The Morlock Night, written in 1979. Fashion bloomed in the 1980s and grew in popularity during the 1990s right along with Gothic and other punk fashion movements including Cyberpunk and Dieselpunk. Modern fashion has changed only slightly with more personas like valiant explorers, scientists, and gentleman.

Steampunk Cufflinks for Steampunk Gentlemen

Many Steampunk looks are based on the Victorian era of dress for men and women. This was also a time that dressing as gentlemen was a must, which meant adding cufflinks to ensure proper cuff appearance. Steampunk fashion changes the style somewhat to ensure Steampunk cufflinks fit with the overall designer outfit. Steampunk cufflinks must be aesthetic to the designer look. It also needs to fit the industrialisation era of Europe that is mentioned in books like Sir Conan Doyle's Sherlock creation and Charles Dicken's London. It is this era that Steampunk novels follow and give a different history to.
