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.
The Best Shoes for Casual Jumpsuits
Also available in bubblegum pink, this best-selling Madewell jumpsuit is made from 100% cotton, which lends a more casual vibe than one made from rayon or silk-satin. Pair them with comfortable high-tops or a low-key sandal, like these from Birkenstock.
The Best Shoes for Short Jumpsuits
Ulla Johnson is known for her ethereal, resort-adjacent aesthetic, and this cotton poplin playsuit is no exception. Embrace the theme with a pair of strappy sandals.
The Best Shoes for Tank Jumpsuits
With its brown-and-navy plaid print, belted waist, and exaggerated wide-leg, this jumpsuit feels like it has a lot going on. But, it somehow works for an everyday vibe. Dress it up with a simple black slide or down with a sneaker and chunky white socks.
The Best Shoes for Fitted Jumpsuits
Sure, this sleeveless jumpsuit feels more akin to a bodysuit, but when you dress it up with a pair of springy sandals, the fitted bodice and square neckline will feel both fancy and unfussy. Until then, a pair of chunky loafers will do.
