Designers like Chanel, Burberry, Prada and Alexander Wang have all done the creeper revival on the runway, but as a trend, it is just recently starting to pick up. I would assume that most people are afraid to wear creepers since they can tend to lean a little on the goth side, but the way modern Fashionistas/os have been styling them these days are pretty incredible.
Today’s Fashionista looks absolutely fierce in her patent platform creepers. She keeps them current by wearing them with a floral romper cinched with a black leather belt and a denim vest. She covered her fingers in costume jewelry to finish off the outfit. Who doesn’t love a good gaudy hand?
To get a similar look, try out the Stinger Creeper by Jeffrey Campbell. For a casual school-friendly ensemble, pair them with this floral romper from NASTY GAL or this one from Free People. Top it with this denim vest also from Free People for a ‘90s-inspired outfit to go with that ’60s/'80s creeper. Mixing decades is always a do.
It’s obvious that creepers are making yet another comeback, but which Fashionista/o in history wore it best? You know — who could forget the most famous creeper(s) of all — Duckie and his dingy pair in Pretty in Pink. Every time I see creepers now, all I can do is sing, “Try A Little Tenderness” to myself and wish that I were as smooth as him. Duckie is the ultimate Fashionisto in my opinion, and he wore creepers, so you probably should too.
