3 Days of Homecoming Ideas: How to Style Yourself Steampunk

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.

    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
