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.

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.
