Throughout most of my life experiences (I am certain nearly every young woman has found herself in a similar position at one time or another), I have always considered the word ‘creep’ to be synonymous with life’s little misfortunes that tend to get under our skin, such as tragic indie horror films or your awkwardly silent neighbor from across the hall. All hail this fearless Fashionista for ripping those ghastly uncomfortable associations from our minds and brilliantly demonstrating how effortless it is to sport a punchy pair of creepers around campus.
Previously, such daring footwear had been reserved for rebellious teens sneaking out of their windows to attend underground punk rock concerts, but thanks to a brilliant array of runway shows and a creeper explosion within the blog-o-sphere, their level of intimidation is solely up to your discretion. This Fashionista’s feminine take on the creeper trend illustrates their potential beauty, but more importantly, their versatility.
Throw on some great statement jewelry and a pair of knee highs (a la this Fashionista) and you will be well on your way to an ensemble that is femininely classic, yet provides that ever so perfect edge fashion conscious individuals crave. And as with any other completely divine although slightly overpowering pair of shoes, easy does it. A printed pair of high-rise shorts and an oversized blouse are ideal for this look to remain wearable, unless of course underground punk rock princess is your goal. Whatever direction you may choose, these creepers are absolutely fool proof. With the addition of this little number from MinkPink, may you unleash your inner puck rock goddess and tackle whatever lies ahead, real-life creeps included.
