The IT List: Full Steam(punk) Ahead!

One trend we are loving for fall is steampunk. Now, there’s a good chance you’re thinking, “What is steampunk?”. We like to think of it as what the past would look like if the future had happened sooner. It’s a style that emerged from a sub-genre of science fiction that mixes the Victorian Era with the Industrial Revolution (cool, right?). It might seem intimidating at first – the intricate designs and costume-like silhouettes – but you don’t have to go full-blown Helena Bonham Carter to rock this quirky trend. Find out how we pull style inspiration from all things steampunk

One way to make a trend like this more wearable is by working it into your accessories. I like to think of this method as “catwalk” to “sidewalk”, a way to make couture more everyday. I’ve pulled together an “inspiration board” to help you kickstart your journey into the world of steampunk.

Being the college-loving bunch that we are, we also can’t resist the steampunk-inspired school supplies from Pierre Belvédère. In particular, we’re big fans of the Agendas pictured below.  The best part? They’re available at your campus bookstore!
