The Best Shoes to Wear With Every Kind of Jumpsuit

We've done the research.

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.
