Twelve Astonishing Steampunk Monocles

Though monocles are rather out of fashion today, you might wonder why. In use since the early 18th century, monocles truly came into style toward the beginning of the 19th century, when they became so fashionable that even those with perfect vision would wear them.

Given the time period and sense of style associated with monocles, it makes perfect sense for steampunk fans to jump on the opportunity to have some fun with them, reinventing Victorian fashion as high-tech art.
