How can girls make a creeper shoe look cool?
Especially since they are not exactly what you call feminine (although there are girly versions out there now!) but for those who want to follow this trend to classic perfection and fit it into modern day society, how do we do that? Well, let me begin by firstly pointing out the fact that a trendy girls style these days has changed heaps, its already steering towards a more edgy kind of vibe now because girls do not always wear dresses with shoes or boots anymore but instead will rock out a dress with a fabulous pair of pumps (usually converse or vans!) and a cropped biker leather jacket to complete they’re edginess! Pumps have become one of the hottest staples for a girl’s everyday style and they are incredibly versatile too, teamed with absolutely anything from skater dresses to hot pants, skinny jeans to leggings they offer an edgy cool result. It’s not a necessity anymore for girls to only wear heels and what we love about this skater style laid back trend is that is it incredibly easy to wear, anyone can wear it and it is super comfortable too. Basically if girls can edge towards this skater style pumps with dresses kind of style then why can’t they do the same with the creepers shoes too? All it takes is a little patience, knowledge and knowhow and anyone can rock this creepers style trend! And let’s not forget that these shoes can also help to create height because of their chunky soles, height and comfort? Sounds like a winner to me!
