To many of us, regardless of our height or body type, jumpsuits are always going to be one of our favorite garments to wear. Similar to dresses, they’re one piece that you can just throw on and head out the door. What’s not to love about that, right?
While we all really enjoy wearing jumpsuits and all the different styles they come in, one thing I know many women struggle with when it comes to jumpsuits is knowing what shoes to wear with jumpsuits.

Because minimal accessories are needed for jumpsuits, shoes are an essential part of creating the perfect look. Since there are different types of jumpsuits for different occasions, I’m going to break down the best shoes to wear with every type of jumpsuit so you’re fully prepared.
Let me start with casual jumpsuits, because they give us the ease and comfort we all love.
First, I want to say “casual jumpsuits” are a very broad term, because they can come in many different styles. They can be cropped length or full length, and they can be wide leg or gathered leg. They can also be made of any materials such as denim, linen, cotton, and polyester/cotton blend, and the list goes on and on.
Because casual jumpsuits cover such a wide range of styles, I will dive deeper into some of the more popular styles later in this post, i.e. the cropped leg jumpsuits and the denim jumpsuits. In this section, I want to give you the general idea of what shoes work the best with casual jumpsuits.
Depending on the season, there are three shoe options I recommend wearing if you are going for a casual jumpsuit look.
In the summer, flat sandals are the best choice with a casual jumpsuit. It goes without saying they are very comfortable, especially if you need to walk a lot.
Whether you are wearing a denim jumpsuit or crop leg jumpsuit, flat sandals match perfectly with them.
Booties are great options in the fall and winter.
Many casual jumpsuits are cropped length, which can potentially make your legs look a bit cut off. If you are tall, you may not care about that. However, if you are petite like me, then you always want your legs to look longer, not shorter.
Booties provide a good solution to the cropped jumpsuit, because they extend above your ankles and reduce or completely cover the gap left by the cropped leg.
Typically, I suggest wearing booties when the weather is a bit cooler out, as they can feel a bit heavy during the warm weather months.
I will talk in more details about the best shoes for cropped jumpsuits later in this post. Keep reading!
Who doesn’t love the comfort and convenience of sneakers! The good news is they can work pretty well with jumpsuits all year long.
These are the 3 best shoe options for your casual jumpsuits. They match the casual vibe and keep from overpowering the look.
Sneakers will give your jumpsuit that athleisure and sporty vibe. While sandals add that feminine, delicate touch.
Which one should you wear? It’s really up to your style preferences for the day.
Wide Leg Jumpsuits
Wide leg jumpsuits have grown in popularity quite a bit over the past year or so. They’re comfortable to wear and rather trendy. Of course the wide leg jumpsuits themselves are stand out pieces, but I know it’s a jumpsuit style that a lot of women struggle to pair shoes with.
The good news? It’s actually one of the easiest styles to pair with shoes! The reason is wide leg jumpsuits are quite versatile, i.e. you can go for either a dressy look or casual look. That means you have many options when it comes with the shoes. That being said, it’s best to keep your shoe choice simple.
Best shoe color
To keep it simple stick with neutral pumps and/or sandals. Think nude, black or white, depending on the color of your jumpsuit.
Should you wear heels?
These can be with heels or without, depending upon how dressed up you need to be in your jumpsuit. The higher the heels, the dressier they will make your jumpsuits look.
Heels have the benefit of extending your legs. If you are petite like me, you might find heels a better choice if your goal is to make your legs look longer in jumpsuits.
I was wearing the wide leg jumpsuits the dressy way in this picture. So, I went with nude heels with pointy toe.
That said, even though heels can make you look taller and leaner in jumpsuit, you don’t need to wear them all the time. Flats are okay too. Just make sure if you’re wearing flats, the length of the pants aren’t dragging behind you!
Ah, cropped jumpsuits! This style has really jumped (pun intended) onto the scene this year. The cropped length adds a trendy, edgy flair to jumpsuits. Plus, it’s something a little different from a romper and classic jumpsuit style. I know cropped length anything tends to trip up a lot of women when it comes to choosing the right shoes to wear. I’m going to make it easy for you!
The casual way
If you’re wearing a cropped jumpsuit casually, slip on
- Flat sandals
All three have various style personalities, so you can choose the option that resonates with you and your style the best.
One thing to keep in mind here is just to make sure the shoes aren’t too chunky. While the chunky sneaker look is a major trend right now, it can be a lot (too much) for cropped jumpsuits. Because of the length of the cropped pants, adding a chunky shoe to that takes over and really over powers the look as a whole.
The dressy way
Now, if you’re wearing a cropped jumpsuit a bit more dressed up, you’ll want to opt for:
- Strappy sandal heels
- Bootie with a high heel.
The pumps and strappy sandals are going to give you that cute dressed up look to your cropped jumpsuit, to make it perfect for dinner or night out.
Booties add an edgier aesthetic, that can also help you transition a cropped jumpsuit from summer to fall.
Jumpsuits for Wedding Guests
Headed to a wedding? Wearing a jumpsuit is such a fun style choice, it’s something a little different from a dress, as many of us often opt for, but looks just as great. Obviously, when you’re styling a jumpsuit to attend a wedding, you need to ensure that you dress up the look so you’re on point for the dress code of the occasion.
First things first, when selecting shoes for your jumpsuit, it’s best to avoid any styles that are really bulky and heavy.
Instead, it’s best to stick with simple, dainty options. This helps to give the jumpsuit that dressed up vibe that’s perfect for a wedding. Simple shoe styles are pumps, high heel sandals, etc. Generally, high heels are your best option.
If the wedding is the spring/summer, open toed options tend to feel more seasonally appropriate and vice versa for closed toed in the fall/winter.
Most of us would prefer to dressy up in heels as wedding guests, but I want to remind you to also take into consideration the comfort level when choosing the heels. The reason is wedding normally last hours, so you want to feel comfortable enough to walk around, socialize and dance! Here’s my suggestions on how to make heels more comfortable.
Now, I want talk a bit about the colors, because this is important for your outfit as a wedding guest. Wedding is such a celebratory occasion, obviously you want to go with the ambiance of it. With regards to the color selection for shoes, I suggest sticking to one of two options:
- Neutral colors
Neutral colors are the easiest choice because they literally go with everything in your closet and they suit any wedding theme. Whether your jumpsuits are solids, prints or patterns, you cannot go wrong with a pair of neutral color shoes.
Metallic are great choice for wedding guests because they look festival and match the wedding occasion perfectly. Even if your jumpsuits are a bit on the casual side, when you put on pair of metallic shoes, you will immediately look much more dressier.
Again, both of these color options help to dress up your look without having to think too much with the jumpsuit for a wedding. So, which one should you wear?
If you want to keep it really simple, stick with a neutral shade like nude. If you want to make a bit more of a statement and add a touch of glam, metallic is great.
I do also want to mention that you should avoid white shoes for a wedding. Why? Because white is the color for the bride on that wedding day!
A lot of us know that we should avoid white dresses or white outfits as a wedding guest, but shoes are often overlooked. That is why I want to remind you on this because it is one of the common mistakes made by wedding guests!
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the denim jumpsuit trend that’s been surfacing recently. It’s such a fun update to denim – a staple we all wear quite often. While denim jumpsuits are made of denim, just like classic jeans, like any new trend there can be a bit of question around the best types of shoes to wear it with. I have you covered!
The good news about this trend is you actually have a lot of shoe options to play around with when styling your denim jumpsuit. I’ll break it down into a few trendy, modern shoe options to get your inspiration going.
This may go without saying but sneakers paired with a denim jumpsuit is a major style win. Just like your typical denim jeans and shorts, sneakers are an easy (super stylish) choice. You can really have fun with your sneaker choice too, since denim jumpsuits are rather neutral.
Looking for a way to spice up your denim jumpsuit? Thrown on a fun pair of high heels! While denim jumpsuits feel more casual because of the denim fabric, they can easily be dressed up with the right pair of shoes. Similar to sneakers, you can really go all out with a pair of statement high heels if you want. Add a pop of color with red pumps, or some pattern to the outfit with leopard print strappy heels. The options are pretty endless.
Last but certainly not least, booties!
Let’s face it, booties have been pretty much everywhere the past couple of years and they probably aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Booties add an edgier twist to a denim jumpsuit. This is a great option during the colder weather months. Again, you can really express yourself and your personal style with the bootie choice.
Keep it neutral with black or white, or mix in some fun personality with snakeskin booties.
Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the ultimate summertime jumpsuit: the romper! Oh how I love rompers in the summer. They feel a bit easier to wear when you’re out and about, compared to a dress, because you don’t have to worry about the wind taking hold of the skirt – and logistics along that line. But let’s get back to the shoes, that’s why you’re here after all.
The major difference between jumpsuits and rompers is the (obvious) length of the pants. With rompers, you see the ENTIRE shoe where jumpsuits often hide the shoes you wear. That being said, wearing rompers gives you a chance to really style up your look with the right shoes. Truthfully, there are a lot of different shoe options that work with rompers.
For the casual romper outfit, sneaker and flat sandals are the perfect option. Just like with long jumpsuits, sandals and sneakers are easy to wear and super comfortable. Of course, they can add some fun style to your look as well.
Want to rock a heel with your romper? You’re in luck because just about every heel type looks great with rompers, seriously! You can go for something really strappy that ties around the ankle, or keep it classic with a pump.
The main thing to keep in mind when selecting the shoes you wear with your rompers is the color/style compared to the romper itself. To really encompass that spring/summer vibe with your look open toed shoe styles are a great choice. They add to that easy, summertime feel we all love this time of year. For example, if the romper is really casual aesthetically you’ll want to avoid a really dressy shoe type. Otherwise, it’s really fair game!
