"'Steampunk' is a movement that reaches back to the 19th century and then creates stories and gadgets and clothing that would have been futuristic at that point in time. Here's an example:

"Sample text: 'Try wearing mid-length skirts with the hems buckled up to reveal breeches or cotton bloomers. Billowing sleeves or bustled skirts with tight leather vests or corsets are a definite. Borrow Middle-Eastern and Indian flair from belly dance fashion or take a nod from pioneer  garb. Wrap tons of leather belts about your waist and hips or use a piece of rope to tie up your pants or skirt. Ladies — search eBay or vintage stores for old-fashioned medical cinchers with fan lacing.'"


 

 

 

 

 

Crinolyn found this other example on the Deviant Art website; this costume genre seems to be gaining in popularity. 

"Steamed Punk" hosts an annual convention called SalonCon;  Here is a sample from the site devoted to that
