Steampunk coat style recommendations for men

In the steampunk subculture, these are some of the common and popular men’s steampunk fashion tropes that utilize a variety of Victorian-era staples.

Steampunk Dorchester tailcoats are classy and suave coats that can complete the adventurer look as easily as the aristocratic look. Steampunk Dorchester tail coats often have elaborate designs and a tighter fit than its Victorian counterpart. The steampunk tailcoat can be worn stylishly without the staple waistcoats for a more unorthodox desperado look.  

The classic tailcoat, such as a gothic aristocrat metal buckle tail coat, paired with matching steampunk trousers and steampunk vest, creates the gentleman look that can be enhanced with dark round sunglasses or goggles. Wearing fingerless leather gloves enhances the steampunk look. This impeccable formal wear is comparatively easy to pull off due to its timeless style.

Opera coats are unique steampunk coats thanks to the semi overcoat-like effect. Pairing a black opera coat with a pocket watch would give a good steampunk vibe since they exclusively have a pocket for holding a timepiece. Steampunk boots mens like hunting boots or a simple pair of Wellington boots can be paired with an opera coat and pants for the final touch.

One of the unique aspects of steampunk fashion that distinctively sets itself apart is short jackets for both men and women. While leather jackets were definitely not the norm during Victorian-era England, steampunk fashion often takes the liberty of its dressing in short jackets that come in both leather and cloth variations. Steampunk jackets men incorporate lots of buckles and straps in their design, making them pair well with trousers and fall fronts.

In the steampunk wild west, greatcoats are a-must outerwear, whether you are dressing as the weary sheriff or the high-class gambler. Greatcoats and duster coats often have cuffed sleeves and fancy lapel work with turned-up collars to protect the wearer from weather elements such as dust. Greatcoats can be easily paired with a simple steampunk shirt, suspenders, trousers, and goggles for the adventurer look or worn as an extra layer over a topcoat.

If you want to go for the intellectual or artist steampunk look, you will need an intricately designed steampunk dress coat paired with matching trousers and shoes. Boots don’t go with this style, so try to complete the whole look with a pair of pointed formal shoes.

Steampunk frock coats are all about being dandy and posh. While the tailcoat and opera coat gives a versatile look, the frock coat provides a highly classy look akin to the modern-day tuxedo. Instead of the bow tie, you can shop for a plain silk handkerchief to tuck over your shirt collar. Frock coats are usually worn with knickers instead of trousers, but there is no harm in pairing with trousers if knickers throw you off.

If you are gunning for the explorer or mercenary look, a well-designed rivet coat is a must-have to complete your look. Rivet coats are lightweight with rivet patterns complemented with leather strips and intricate embroidery. The coats can be combined with fall-front trousers, boots, and a cap. 

To finish off the men steampunk coat styling recommendations, we will end with the ever-popular trench coat. This evergreen variation of the standard overcoat is popular in many genres and subcultures like noir and cyberpunk clothes, therefore considered universal in all fictional and non-fictional cultures. Trench coats give a rugged feel due to their militaristic look by default. Shop for a hooded victorian trench coat and complement it with a pair of military boots, leather gloves, and steampunk military trousers for the de facto steampunk action man look.                 

Steampunk coat style recommendations for women

In the steampunk realm, women have more choice than their real Victorian-era counterparts when it comes to choice and variation in coat design. Here are our recommendations on the steampunk women’s styles to shop for. Overcoats are not restricted to men only in the steampunk subculture. If you opt to choose one for an aristocratic look, you can go for an elaborate and ornate steampunk corset or overbust and paired with fashionable trousers or a long skirt. Ankle-length boots are highly recommended with this particular steampunk coat style for women.

Another steampunk coat staple for women is short jackets that come in more cuts and designs than men’s coats in general. Steampunk short jackets for women come in both leather and cloth variations and are associated with the working-class woman look. This gives you the flexibility to change your look, depending on what accessories you choose to pair with the jacket. Pair a steampunk short jacket with skinny trousers tucked in ankle-length boots for the adventurer look or a fancy pair of engineering goggles and a steampunk skirt for an engineer look.

Tailcoats are another popular choice among ladies in the steampunk subculture to capture the aristocrat style.  Steampunk frock coats for women have a narrower waistline and usually incorporate oversized lapels and buckles around the sleeves and waist. One distinctive difference between men’s and women’s steampunk tailcoats is that the women’s version is usually open-bust to accommodate the narrow waistline. You are free to pair them with skirts or trousers, whichever you prefer, as long as you wear a vest to complete the look.

Burgundy coats are the quintessential Victorian era and steampunk staple for women. Simple yet versatile, burgundy coats can feel militaristic, aristocratic, or intellectual, depending on the color combination, edginess, and elaborateness of the design. Burgundy coats are usually accompanied by full-length steampunk dresses. You can opt to wear a dress over a shirt and trousers or a shirt and skirt combination and finish off the look with whatever steampunk accessories you need to reflect your chosen style. A mini top-hat and a monocle can really throw in a playful librarian look with a burgundy coat.

Trench coats go just as well with many women’s steampunk styles.  Women's trench coats come in open and closed variations, with the closed ones often having slits like dresses for easier movement. They also often incorporate fur lining along with the collars and cuffs. With trench coats, you can choose to complete the look with a stylish pair of boots as the boots are the most visible accessory after the coat itself.
