3 Strange Fashion Styles of 2013

January 7th, 2014

Alternative fashion is like a living, evolving entity that’s always changing. When new fashion styles find their way onto the high street, they often turn heads. These 3 styles have received a significant amount of attention throughout 2013.

Steampunk

Steampunk fashion is rising in popularity. In 2010 the genre was fairly unknown; however, since 2012, cities from all over the globe began hosting annual conventions, which has caused a dramatic spike in popularity.

One of the main reasons why steampunk fashion is so popular is because of modern literature and video games. The style is often featured in neo-sci-fi stories because of its alternative reality approach to the 1800’s.

Typical characteristics of steampunk fashion include top hats, overcoats, monocles, and cog machinery, fused with futuristic accessories such as smart phones and tablets. Steampunk fashion shows no signs of dying out and perhaps in a few years it will develop into something more than just an alternative fashion.

Zombie

We’ve all had dreams about the inevitable zombie apocalypse; and we all think we’ll know how to handle ourselves. Zombie culture is huge, perhaps due to HBO series The Walking Dead and a countless amount of b-movies that have popped up over the past ten years.

Zombie fashion spawned from the worldwide fasciation of the impending apocalypse. What started off as a style only suited to Halloween soon turned into a full-fledged alternative scene. While it’s still yet to be featured on the high street, thousands of people regularly take part in parades and conventions all over the world.

Zombie fashion is a little more toned down and often based on characters from series and video games, rather than the undead creatures themselves. Icons include the cast from The Walking Dead and the characters from the Resident Evil series.

Rockabilly

Imagine Elvis as a goth and you’ll start to understand what the rockabilly style looks like. Rockabilly is the combination of retro, goth and punk. While it keeps the traditional 50’s and 60’s base, it often incorporates themes from other genres.

Rockabilly formed in the 50’s and 60’s; however, over the years it has changed and adapted into something completely different. Typical features of women’s rockabilly style include polka dot skirts, dresses and blouses; pompadour haircuts; and heavy goth-like makeup. Sailor themed necklaces and tattoos are also very common among the hardcorefollowers. Men’s rockabilly fashion usually takes on a more Grease-like approach with tight jeans, ankle biters, skinny while tees and leather jackets.

The rockabilly moniker has spawned various other sub-styles, including trashabilly, punkabilly and gothabilly. While these styles are all very similar and difficult to distinguish visually, the philosophies and ideologies that they represent couldn’t be further apart.

As the years go by fashion historians often look back in time to see which trends will surface again in the future. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how these styles are perceived in the decades to come and whether or not they are simply short-lived fads or will find their way into mainstream society.
