3 Days of Homecoming Ideas: How to Style Yourself Steampunk

Homecoming Styling, via the ModCloth Blog

If you’re headed to homecoming this year and are stumped for what to wear, our ModStylists have you covered! This week, they’re doing the outfit math for you by styling one homecoming-worthy party dress, three ways. Yesterday, ModStylist Jess showed you how to transform the Baklava Beauty Dress into a look worthy of rocking center stage, and today she’s taken the same dress and given it a steampunk spin.

ModStylist Jess has steampunk down to a science: simply add to your dress a ladylike waistcoat, sheer, patterned tights, and timeless lace-up boots. Standout accessories, like a ruffled headband and clockwork-inspired necklace, complete the look.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950’s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.

    Love this outfit! Much closer to actual steampunk than the tag in the style gallery suggests. ;)

    I would honestly just wear this outfit if I feel like dressing up on a regular day, especially the boots. They’re a must-have! The only difference is that I’d wear this locket instead: http://therustedkey.com/collections/steampunk-pendants/products/steampunk-locket#.UkGwvGTwJgJ
