This one seems the most obvious. What are goggles intended for? That’s right, protecting your eyes! Wearing your goggles all the time can keep you one step ahead of everyone else.

2. Around Your Neck
Just get done duck and dodging ray guns? Or maybe you are at a convention and going for that ‘casual’ look. Either way, around your neck is one way to show off your steampunk sunglasses. For technical reasons, it is not the best choice. The time taken to apply the goggles far exceed the time needed for the following option. Use this option sparingly.
3. On Your Head
Quite possibly the most common and practical way of sporting steampunk goggles, on your head.

Flip those babies down in a flash! Not only for the practical use, sunglasses on your head just looks so gosh darn cool.
4. On Your Hat
Practical? Eh, no. Stylish? Possibly. Some people enjoy wearing their goggles over their hat. That’s okay! Who are we to tell them otherwise? Speaking from practical terms, this is one of the worst places to have your goggles. It takes a lot of time in order to put them to use. Of course, if you’re at a social gathering and no immediate danger awaits, by all means, strap them up.
There you have it. Four ways of how to wear steampunk goggles. Each person has their preference and rightfully so. The great thing about steampunk is the customization. Go against the grain.
