The jumpsuit has long been lauded as the perfect outfit, and deservingly so. Not only does it serve as a full head-to-toe look in one step, but the right style can be as comfortable as a dress while offering the coverage of pants. Even more, jumpsuits are easy to dress up or down with the addition of just a few accessories. The most important accessory, of course, are the shoes that you pair with your jumpsuit. 

Styles with a wide leg and a more casual vibe, for example, often pair best with sneakers or comfortable slides that are largely hidden beneath the hemline. But a more polished jumpsuit—like one that would work for a job interview or a wedding—might call for a pair of heels. The fitted jumpsuit, which feels more akin to a bodysuit or a sweatsuit, is poised to be one of 2021’s biggest (and most comfortable) trends. For a truly modern feel, pair yours with lug-sole creepers or loafers with chunky socks until it’s warm enough to swap them for mules.  

Ahead, 10 different kinds of jumpsuits to shop—including rompers, a leather boilersuit, and a one-shoulder style—and the best shoes to wear with each.
