Shoes to wear with a jumpsuit
hoes are my wardrobe passion and jumpsuits come a close second, so when it comes to shoes to wear with a jumpsuit, I’ve got that one covered! This navy jumpsuit is one of my most worn items and I talked about how to wear navy in my post inspired by the colours on my trip to Malta.
In my last post on how to wear colour I delved a little into colour blocking and left some inspiration there. I practice what I preach and I have been wearing a lot more colour as a result!
But, not only am I serving you inspiration on how I capsule style and what shoes I wear with a jumpsuit, I am also giving away a bag. Yes, the bag featured here is up for grabs. You may remember it from my how to wear brown post. I bought it, I love it and if you can enter below, you might have one, too!
Of course, these shoes aren’t only for a jumpsuit, you can wear them with dresses, trousers and jeans. I just find them really versatile and shoes that I actually get wear out of, rather than some that are sadly languishing in my wardrobe waiting to be taken to the ball!
As I am a #BodenPartner, I have been gifted the shoes* I’m wearing and there are other alternatives and brands throughout the post. But, as a partner I have a 20% off and free shipping link for Boden, which you can use outside the sales. I use it myself, so fill your
*many of which are on sale now!
What Shoes To Wear With a Wide Leg Jumpsuit
I think that it’s the occasion rather than the type of jumpsuit that dictates which shoes to wear. But, personally I tend to wear wide leg jumpsuits that have a higher waist. I just think it’s a universally flattering style and, conversely, is very slimming.
Don’t shy away from this style even if you’re small like me, because there are so many flattering options. I’ll leave some navy jumpsuits at the end of this post.
With a wide leg full length jumpsuit, I would choose either a pointed shape or a sandal or heel. Because of the length of the trouser, I’d be more likely not to wear a round toe as when you’re a size 3/35, it just looks like I have no feet!
With a more culotte crop style jumpsuit, like the jumpsuit I’m wearing, I think you can get away with any style of shoe. And that’s possible why I wear culotte style trousers and jumpsuits so much!
With a slim leg jumpsuit, I would tend to go for something with elevation. Definitely nothing with too chunky a profile. Especially not with a long length slim leg jumpsuit.
Block Heel Shoes To Wear With a Jumpsuit
Block heels are the way forward when it comes to wearing heels comfortably! You get all the height and all the stability, too! When I was pregnant with B I had sciatica (more than ouch!) and was advised that going from my usual skyscrapers to a low, block heel was actually better for me. So, I took my style direction from the Queen and that’s what I wore in the office. Outside of the office I was either in trainers for the gym or ballet flats so I could walk fast. But, block heels have been a staple for me since as these days skyscraper heels give me vertigo!
And, with these shoes I’m serving not just block heels, but colour block block heels!
You can absolutely afford to go bold with your shoes, whatever the season and whatever the weather! Shoes are one of my favourite ways to add a bit of something extra to any outfit. And I think we owe it to ourselves and to this autumn/winter to inject some fun!
Slingback Heels with a jumpsuit
As a style and colour to wear with anything, you can’t go wrong with a tan heel and the woven rattan style is not going away any time soon. I love the way the woven detail puts an elegant twist on a classic slingback style here. Tan and navy are a great combination because both are neutral, complementary base colours.
Slingback shoes are everywhere at the moment – from a flat, to a kitten heel, through low to high heels. Again, neutral tones go with everything, but a pop of colour is just fun and injects a bit of personality.
I bought the leopard print ones below on sale for £10 last week, which I was thrilled about as I’ve had my eye on them for a while (remember that designer shoes dupes post and video?). I’m thrilled because they work so well with this jumpsuit, too!

Flat shoes with a jumpsuit
We can’t not talk about flats. Flats are a daily staple for me, whether I’m on the school run, in the office, or sightseeing, I have flats for every occasion. The very first ones I featured on this blog, I still wear to death! Also, my first shoes from Boden were flats that again, still make several rounds.
So, flat shoes with a jumpsuit are a no brainer. BUT, I tend to go for something a bit special – especially with my ole navy jumpsuit. By that I mean a bit of a statement shoe – either a colour or a pattern. Or just a little detail.
Flats don’t have to be flat – a extra detail with patterns or prints adds texture and interest and lifts a neutral jumpsuit or outfit.
My trademark style is classic with a twist. So, I’m such a fan of mixing the classic element of this navy jumpsuit, with a statement shoe – be it bold or just something extra in the design. You can choose round toe, pointed or even this season’s big trend of geometric square.
Flatforms – what are they?
Something that I’ve never considered before until now, is flatforms. Flat platforms. Remember Buffalos a la the Spice Girls? Well, they’re back. Yikes! But the grown up version is the new flatform style that actually make sense to me – a flatform is a flat shoe with a bit of elevation if traditional flats are just not doing it for you!
