street style inspirations: incorporating creepers into casual outfits for the non-creepy (or super-creepy) types

When you want to look like a boss charge, one of the guys, alpha female at work with bit a casual quality that makes you approachable, try out an all white suit. Any shoe would work, but black creeper shoes and a bit of attitude to a seemingly simple outfit. image via le fashion.
The patent leather espadrille sole Prada creepers have been seen everywhere and both the ladies and the guys, it just might be a timeless shoe that will cross over to all generations. For an office casual look for the guys during a warmer spring day, pair the creepers with some knee length shorts, sweater, and heavy duty messenger bag. Navy, black, and camel always look classic together. image via pinterest.
The lovely blogger of 5 inch and up makes a mellow-dramatic appearance in her Burberry Monk Wedge creepers paired with a somber linen dress, showing you that creepers are just the right shoe for an icy, overcast day. image 5 inch and up.
This girlishness of this long sheer white dress is toned down with some bad-ass details like the black patent leather creeper inspired loafer and a matching black leather Balenciaga motorcycle bag. The white opaque frame sunglasses add just the right amount of funkiness. image who what wear.



Maroon burgundy skinny jeans and black socks look awesome with the creeper -inspired Burberry Monk wedge- so cool, so classic, so need to have these shoes. On the hunt for  a similar pair as I type this. For those who don't have an extra grand laying , check out this post by the boom in your room for more affordable Burberry Creeper inspired creeper wedges. image via the blonde salad.
A cool simple casual look that works for both guys and girls is something that always catches my eye. Here is a candid photo of girl on the street with probably on her way to grab lunch with a friend or run errands. This looks fairly simple enough until you notice the little details- the black creeper shoes with the silver metallic hardware, the leopard print shopper bag, a long coat-tail jacket, to men's-inspired gold watch and the dark green scarf. image via caroline's mode.


The always stylish and cool Caroline pairs her black patent leather Prada creeper inspired shoes with the blue trimming, with a black fur coat, a cream white mesh sweater, black skinny jeans, and a classic chain bag. Yet another amazing yet seemingly simple outfit for everyday style. image via the fashionspot forums via caroline's mode.
Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast was one of the first bloggers spotted with the Burberry creepers. Here is one way to to tone down the oddness of these shoes- pair with a pair of grey knit socks. image via oh my god shoes.

On the the runway of Max Mara spring summer 2008 collection, top fashion model Natasha Poly looks like tough and sassy with a strapless dress with a long strucutred skirt paired with solid classic black sunglasses and black leather creeper inspired loafers with buckles. image via the fashionspot forum.

Blogger of Unconventional Morning shoes you that black and white creepers are just the right pair of shoes to stroll through some fresh winter snow. That amazing black fur coat looks so warm and cool. Need it in my life. image via unconventional morning.

This girl's style caught my eye because the rather Gothic attitude of those white and black creeper shoes are given a fresh take by being paired with a colorful satin midi skirt with a ruffle at the waist with gorgeous jewel tones of green and purple. image via pininterest.

Betty is such a betty. Instead of working against the seemingly grungy Gothic attitude of the Burberry creeper wedge,  she works with it by pairing the creeper inspired shoes with black tights, and Kurt Cobain-esque red plaid hoodie. image via what do I wear tumblr via le blog de betty.

Top Chinese fashion model Shu Pei always looks stylish off runway- she has a great androgynous, tomboyish street style that's casual and stylish. This candid shot Shu Pei features her outfit of her black patent leather Prada creepers with a pair of baggy faded denim jeans, tan leather quilted motorcycle jacket, grey fur scarf, and brown Celine box bag. image via vanessa jackman blog.

What are creepers???
Well, according to the knowledgeable Wikipedia: "Creepers or brothel creepers are a type of shoe. They found their beginnings in the years following World War II, as soldiers based in the deserts in North Africa wore suede boots with hard-wearing crepe soles because of  the climate and environment. Having left the army, many of these ex-soldiers found their way to the nightspots of London wearing the same crepe-soled shoes and these became known as "brothel creepers"."

Nowadays, different interpretations of the creeper shoe have been popping up on street styles and runways alike. Fashion houses like Prada, Moschino, Burberry to name a few, have created renditions of the creeper shoe which have been influencing a huge comeback of the creeper shoe into everyday wear- now even non-Gothic types have been rocking this style of shoe in everyday casual wear to semi formal office outfits.

New York Fashion Week Celebrity Head [url=http://coachbagswholesales.com/]coach factory outlet online[/url] Count ELLE
New York Fashion Week Celebrity Head CountSeptember 17 1:39 PMby Suzanne Weinstock 0 Comments The Girls Who Go Eveywhere, Jessica Szohr & Leigh Lezark. Photo: Getty The race to be the next Sophia Bush was tight this season. Who would come away with the most front row credits? We've gathered said intel (with an entirely unscientific approach) and are pleased to bring you this season's main fixtures. Leigh Lezark. By late in the week all we could [url=http://coachoutlet2bags.com/]coachoutlet2bags.com[/url] think was, "Isn't she tired?" The Misshapes DJ was photographed at no less than 15 shows and by our account was ignored by weary photographers at quite a few others. Kelly Osbourne. This week Osbourne was half-celeb enjoying the front row (she never stopped smiling!) and [url=http://coachoutlet2bags.com/]coach outlet[/url] half-member of the media snapping pictures and [url=http://coachoutlet2bags.com/]coachoutlet2bags.com[/url] trend-spotting in the front row of at least 8 shows. Kristin Cavallari. Now that The Hills is over she must have some time to kill. Her first appearance at Z Spoke created quite a stir. By the end of the week the reaction was more one of , "Oh.... Her again." Jessica Szohr. Her Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester [url=http://coachbagswholesales.com/]coach factory online store[/url] was too busy working to make more than two appearances this season, but Szohr managed to show up everywhere from Kate Spade's dinner for Twirl to Tommy Hilfiger's front row. (Though she may as well have been 8th row at the latter since she was stuffed into a row with distracting faces like Bradley Cooper, Ed Westwick, and Neil Patrick Harris.) Estelle, Katrina Bowden, Alison Brie & Denise Richards.  If you're trying to figure out a) who these people are or b) whey they're on a celebrity list, don't worry.  It took us a minute, too.  But they [url=http://coachoutlet2bags.com/]coach outlet online store[/url] popped up in the front rows time and time again with a ready smile for the cameras. Alan Cumming. The Gossip boys laid low this season, but  Alan Cumming was happy to show up to more than just The Strokes. Cynthia Rowley makes sense, they're friends, but The Blonds?  Perhaps he's researching an upcoming Broadway production?   No matter, his bedhead and quirky presence were always a pleasant surprise. As for the celebs who showed up and left us wanting more.  That diverse group includes: Deborah Ann Wohl. True Blood's  virgin vampire made just one appearance at Prabal Gurung.  Her co-star Joe Manganiello showed up twice, but an appearance from Anna Paquin or Alexander Skarsgard would've been much appreciated. Johnny Weir. He wore a whole animal to Isaac Mizrahi's morning show, over a shocking pink jacket of course.  We could've used such color throughout the week. Kristin Chenoweth. Sure the itsy-bitsy star's adorable, her over-the-top excitement in the front row is almost as fun as the show itself. Christina Hendricks. After a week of watching waifs on the runway, the va-va-voom Mad Men star was a breath of fresh air. Debbie Harry. She's Debbie Harry. Enough said.

The “It” Lip Balm ELLE
The “It” Lip BalmMay 1 12:51 PMby ELLE 0 Comments the wondrous little lip balm on my desk Now that warmer days are (finally!) here, hopefully for good this time around, I've been offhandedly looking around for some good summer beauty products to replace my heavier winter ones. A good place to do that is often in the little gift bags that are given out at the end of most fashion parties and events. Although, if you have the little problem of...er...laziness, you end up either forgetting the [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]savebigshopping.com[/url] goodie bags in the cab on the way home or tossing them in some remote corner of home or office until months later when you finally have the time and energy to look through everything (or, in my case, [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]coach outlet[/url] when your [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]savebigshopping.com[/url] roommate grabs you by the ear and drags you to the scarily high pile of gift bags and orders you to go through them and "get rid of it", all the while threatening bodily harm). Most of the [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]coach outlet online[/url] gift bags I get from events end up languishing in a big heap in a corner of my bedroom or in the living room of [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]coach factory outlet[/url] my apartment, which drives my slightly OCD-inflicted roommate insane, providing me endless amusement. Mature, I know. So, last night, I gave in and plowed through them all. In a big, black, nondescript shopping bag was this little dark copper tube of Sugar lip balm by Fresh. I'm totally infatuated with it—I've reapplied like twenty times already this morning. It's light, colorless, [url=http://savebigshopping.com/]coach factory[/url] non-sticky, and smells like Meyer lemons. It also has SPF 15, lip-plumping fatty acids, and vitamins for extra protection. It's like Chapstick on steroids. And the best part? It comes in a rotating tube, not a jar. There's nothing I hate more than having to dip my finger in a melting, gooey jar of lip balm and smear it all over my mouth on a hot summer day. Ew. Anyway, it's heaven—the perfect summer lip stuff. BUT, unfortunately it's currently sold out on their website (I googled it as soon as I hit my desk this morning), indicating instant "It" lip balm status. But keep checking back—it's worth it, I tell you. Anyone else have any good hot-weather products? Tags:
