Just as a dress can lean ultra-casual or black-tie-ready, jumpsuits can run the gamut from laid-back to high glamour. The best part about wearing a jumpsuit is how easy it is—it's all one piece, so no matching required. There's just one thing left to decide: What shoes should you wear with your jumpsuit? To help, we're breaking down different types of shoes and the jumpsuits they look best with.
Jumpsuits with semi-wide, wide, and ultra-wide legs tend to pair well with wedges since the fabric fits nicely over the shoe without bunching. This combination also creates nice balance from the leg through the toe since wedges are weighty. Wedges better complement casual jumpsuits, like this grey-wash denim, and also work well with jumpsuits constructed from lightweight fabrics such as jersey, cotton, and linen.
What to pair with a jumpsuit with wedges: A white cardigan or undershirt and a black straw tote all fit nicely into the grey palette of the jumpsuit itself. For a pop, add a pair of statement chandelier earrings.
If you're aiming for a look that's laid-back while still very on trend, throw on a cropped, loose-fit sleeved jumpsuit in a neutral hue. Sneakers lend themselves perfectly to the relaxed fit and higher hemline of this silhouette. Not only does the cropped leg allow you to show off the sneaker in its entirety, but it complements the low-key, boyish aesthetic of a utilitarian jumpsuit.
What to pair with a jumpsuit with sneakers: If you're craving some flash, you can't go wrong with a statement handbag. A multi-hued snakeskin crossbody will certainly catch eyes, as would a shoulder bag in an unapologetic solid color like blood red, yellow, or classic blue.
Whether dressy or casual, flats are a good call anytime your jumpsuit has a tapered or straight leg. This prevents unflattering bunching or snagging around the ankle, which you're likely to get with a wider shoe (such as a wedge or sneaker). You can also pair flats with a cropped leg. For a jumpsuit like this cobalt cap-sleeve number, an easy white loafer mule provides some contrasting texture.
What to pair with a jumpsuit with flats: A set of multi-tonal bangles, a tailored white-and-black jacket, and a kelly green tote bring the look home. For a less formal feel, lose the jacket and opt for a crossbody or shoulder bag in a neutral leather. If you want to dress up the ensemble, swap the bangles for glittering chandelier earrings and a sequin clutch.
Heeled sandals—and heels in general—pair beautifully with almost any type of jumpsuit, especially if you're going for a dressier vibe, like this burgundy satin style. A jumpsuit with a slim or tapered leg allows you to show off the entire shoe—a bonus if you're wearing a killer pair of kicks.
What to pair with a jumpsuit with heels: Playful strappy, rainbow-colored snake-print heels sizzle against the fitted silhouette and tapered leg. Add a mini rainbow clutch and a shimmering gold wrap.
While heeled sandals tend to feel dressy, flat sandals often lean more carefree and informal. This makes them an ideal complement to breezy weekend looks. In terms of silhouette, flat sandals generally pair best with a cropped, tapered, or straight leg. Cropped jumpsuits—like the blue-and-white cotton tie-dye option here—create space for a real shoe moment, so don't hold back. Try a fun sandal with unexpected detailing, such as the crisscross, bandage-like ankle straps on this shoe.
What to pair with a jumpsuit with flat sandals: When you're drawing attention with your jumpsuit, you can tone down the rest of the look with neutral accessories in the same color family as your sandals.
