Loafers, creepers and oxfords are a huge trend for the fall 2015 season. With the menswear trend continuing from last year, it is no wonder that this trend in shoes is still hotter than hot.
Creepers, loafers and oxfords not only complete a menswear inspired ensemble, they also offer a nod to 90’s inspired styles which are still very much on trend on the streets. Oxfords, loafers and creepers were a huge trend in footwear in the early 1990’s. So it is only natural that this trend in shoes return when waistlines on denim are on the rise, cut-outs on jeans are considered du rigueur, and crop tops are perfectly acceptable shirts.
The fabulous part about this footwear trend, is that it is comfortable! The lug soles found on loafers, creepers and oxfords offer extra comfort for the footbed. They also offer traction in icy conditions, and during rain. Love that!
Creepers, loafer and oxfords can be worn with both casual attire, and business casual ensembles. They look fabulous with boyfriend jeans, overalls, and full or a-line skirts. This is considered the “street version” of the trend.
For a menswear look, oxfords, loafers and creepers look amazing with full or wide leg trousers paired with a blouse, shirt or sweater. An unstructured blazer could complete the look if one needed an extra layer in the office. This is how the trend was shown on the runways for fall.
The lug sole is an important aspect of this shoe trend. Creepers, oxfords and loafers for fall 2015 can be found with traditional, flat soles; but these are considered a more classic version of the style. For the fashion-forward version of this shoe trend, look for 90’s friendly lug soles. You will love the lug sole since it adds height, like a platform, and grips the ground during inclement weather. Love that!
