Are you having a fashion emergency at the moment? Don’t worry, I’ll be your Carrie Bradshaw today. Picking the perfect pair of shoes is a challenging task if you’re looking for a stylish outfit, and rompers aren’t making it any easier. So what shoes to wear with rompers?
When I first needed to style it, I went through hell. For some reason, everything I tried to put together didn’t work out the way I wanted. But after a day of trying out almost every pair of shoes I own, I was finally able to make a list of 14 stylish outfit ideas that include rompers.
And shoes…obviously! Honestly, it went from a mission impossible to one of the most successful missions. So I’ll allow myself to be called Carrie Bradshaw’s twin. However, in order to get people to call me that, I need to prove myself first.
So, let us help each other. I’ll give you perfect outfit ideas, and you’ll give me the coolest nickname out there. Do we have a deal? In case we do, scroll down!
What shoes to wear with rompers?
Romper is one of the most fun pieces of clothing. It’s a combination of shorts and a top, but it’s all made in one piece. Pretty cool, right?
And in case you’re one of those people who are wondering why shouldn’t I just wear two separate pieces instead of buying a romper, I have an answer for you. It’s fashion!
Don’t overthink it! Sometimes logic doesn’t work in that field. The only important thing is that it looks nice and feels comfortable (even though we’ll sometimes gladly ignore that if something fits us perfectly).
Rompers are actually fascinating! They can be short, but also over the knee. They can be fitted, but also loose. So basically, there’s something for everyone. But that’s not even the best part!
You can also find them in all colors, fabrics, prints, styles, and sizes. Rompers can be worn when you’re going on a picnic with your friends, but if you pick a good one, and style it well, you can even attend a summer wedding in it.
Now tell me that that’s not such a unique piece of clothing. You can’t because that would be lying. And we’re not here to lie to each other but to help one another, remember?
Okay girl, hear me out. I’ve tried hundreds of outfits to make this list, so relax, soon you’ll know how to style your rompers and which shoes to choose.
The good thing is that most of these shoes are hiding in all of our shoe racks. So, I’m not making you spend more money (unless you want to buy yourself a new pair of shoes you “desperately need”).
No matter which one of them you choose, I promise you that you’ll look like a million dollars. Are you ready for that? Great! So, let me keep my promise and tell you what shoes to wear with rompers.
1) Slides and Birkenstocks
Okay, let’s start with a laid-back look that you can achieve with rompers. If you’re into that, then your best friends should be sporty slides and Birkenstocks.
When it comes to sporty slides, my favorite options are black and white Addidas Adilettes. You can easily style them and get a sporty casual look. But it will still be visible that you put effort into styling it.
If you’re not into that, then you may want to try puffy criss-cross sporty slides. They do look a bit less sporty than Adidas ones, so if you’re looking for something right in the middle, that would be the perfect option for you.
This summer, one of the people’s favorites was also Armani Code slides. They look so fashionable that you can combine them with rompers and still look incredibly stylish.
However, some girls are looking for something that will be comfortable and give off more earthy vibes. If you’re one of them, then the best piece of advice I have for you is to get yourself Birkenstocks.
You will need to choose the color depending on your romper. But if you ask me, some of the most stylish ones are black leather ones. In addition to them, I like styling brown leather Birkenstocks with my outfit when I’m looking for a natural look vibe.
2) Ankle boots
Okay, hear me out. Ankle boots are one of my favorite things in the whole world! Wanna look sporty? Ankle books can pull it off. Wanna look effortlessly stylish? Ankle boots are there for you again! Or maybe you just want a casual outfit? The answer stays the same.
So, what can we conclude from this? Rompers and ankle boots are BFFs. And that’s especially true during transitional weather. With them, you’ll be able to dress up but also to dress down if you want that kind of look.
My favorite pick is leather ankle boots that can make a perfect outfit combined with rompers and a leather jacket. If you ask me, this is one of the best outfits that you can choose in fall and spring.
3) Cowboy boots
These aren’t everyone’s favorites. But boy, oh, boy, do they look amazing with rompers. Cowboy boots!
Don’t say no to them immediately if you aren’t a big fan. Trust me, you can style them perfectly with the right option of clothes. If you pick a black romper, then your cowboy boots will do wonders.
It doesn’t matter if you chose black or black and white leather cowboy boots because the combination of them and simple, fitted rompers will be simply perfect. It’s a great option for a spring outfit and it can give you either a bohemian or an edgy vibe.
If you like accessories then you can combine that love of yours too. Add hoop earrings and some other jewelry to be ready for a fun night out. You can style it with an oversized blazer too.
However, if you got interested when I mentioned bohemian vibes, then I suggest you add a denim jacket and maybe a hat if you’re a fan of that!
4) Combat boots
Another great transitional month’s look is styled with rompers and combat boots. Combat boots are truly amazing as they go perfectly with almost anything. They will always be one of my all-time favorites!
So, if you don’t know what shoes to wear with rompers, they are the perfect answer for you. If you want my piece of advice, then you’ll look for black leather or utility rompers because the combination of them and combat boots creates such an amazing edgy look.
Don’t forget to pick a cool jacket that fits the whole style. If you chose black boots, then you can try out a leather jacket or even something with a military pattern to introduce some more colors.
5) Knee-heigh boots
Knee-high boots are perfect when you’re wearing short rompers. It doesn’t matter if you chose fitted or loose ones, it looks equally stylish when you combine them with these kinds of boots.
When it’s chilly outside, and it looks like it will rain, this outfit will make you look like a movie diva. You will get a mysterious and interesting look that will look amazing in the gloomy weather.
You can choose the ones with heels that will give you a more professional look, or the flat ones that might be more comfortable and less formal.
6) Sneakers or tennis shoes
I’m definitely one of those girls who live by the rule “You can style sneakers with everything and still look fashionable.”
So if you’re wondering what shoes to wear with rompers, sneakers are always a great option. They are comfortable, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t chic at the same time. Especially when you keep them clean! So don’t forget to do that.
If you wear dirty sneakers with rompers, your whole style will look cheap and like you haven’t put any effort into your looks that day.
My favorite ones are white because you can style them with anything you want. To make your whole vibe more stylish, combine your romper with a jean or a leather jacket.
7) Slingback pumps
Here’s another proof that rompers are actually better than we all think they are. They are a perfect and simple outfit, especially if you style them with a pair of slingback pumps. If you want to look extra stylish, I suggest you get yourself the ones with thin stripes. Maybe something silver or gold.
But why are these so amazing?
First of all, they give you extra height (what most of us actually prefer), but that’s not even the best part. Wearing them combined with shorter rompers will make your legs look amazing.
If you ask me, this is one of the best options for an outfit with rompers. You’ll definitely love it!
8) Strappy sandals
Many people think that strappy sandals are not fashionable anymore. But they couldn’t be more wrong. Strappy sandals will always be “in” if you know how to style them properly.
Those are the ones that you wrap around your ankles. They can be low-heeled or flat, but both options look amazing with a romper outfit. What makes them so amazing is the ability to make you look formal and casual at the same time.
With them, you can easily get dressed to go to a nightclub with your friends, take a walk in the park, or even go to a fancy restaurant. It all depends on which ones you decided to choose.
If you ask me, a black or white romper is best styled with black strappy sandals. And that’s a perfect night-out outfit. And if you want a natural casual look, then the best option is a brownish or skin-tone pair of those sandals combined with a loose romper.
Let’s say you still don’t know what shoes to wear with rompers. Don’t worry, here’s another idea for you.
If you don’t want to look too formal while wearing heels, but you also aren’t interested in a style that is too casual, then espadrilles are a perfect option for you. They will give you exactly what you’re looking for. And that’s a balance between formal and casual outfits.
The best thing is that you can add whatever you want to it and you will still look amazing. Do you feel like wearing a denim jacket? No problem! Do you think a hat would look cool on you? Great idea, it will still look amazing with your whole outfit!
10) Leather slides and clogs
Every summer, rompers become one of the hottest trends. What makes them so amazing is that they are very comfortable but at the same time, you can look amazing in them. The secret to an amazing look is in how you style those rompers.
One of the best ways to do so is to combine them with leather slides. They can help you take your look from a casual daily style to a night-out-worthy outfit. Especially if you’re looking for something that will make you stand out.
When it comes to that night out I would advise you to wear leather slides with platform heels. That will make you look even more stylish and glamorous.
11) Loafers and oxfords
Hey, we reached my favorite way to style rompers! I’m literally in love with how amazing they look when you combine them with loafers and oxfords. You simply look like one of those high-fashion models who are currently at the peak of their career.
My advice for you is to choose a shoe color according to your romper. If your romper is black, it would be a good idea to use black and white loafers and possibly add some metallic shine to make them stand out. It would look fun and add a touch of style.
Then you will need to be careful about the rest of your accessories. Keep them simple because there’s a thin line between fashionable and “too much”.
P.S. Be careful about the socks you’re wearing!
12) Flat sandals
Summer is the time of the year when the weather is mostly beautiful so we love spending time outdoors with our friends. That means that you’re probably spending lots of free time walking. So, I’m pretty sure you would like to wear something comfortable.
Since rompers are very popular during summer, I have some good news for you. You can style them with flat sandals! You will still look amazing, but you won’t have to worry about whether your feet would hurt when you come back home or not.
So buy a pair of comfy flat sandals. We recommend you go for Steve Madden’s Donddi sandals. They’re a timeless classic made out of 100% leather which means they’re going to last you a long time. Feel free to experiment with colors because it’s summer and everything should be colorful and fun!
I’m pretty sure you’ve already learned that rompers can give you any kind of look you want to achieve. You can go from a casual “I’m going to the store” look to a “Hey, there’s a great DJ in town tonight, wanna join me?” look in no time.
And if you’re looking for a formal look, pumps are still a great shoe choice for you. My favorite ones are black rompers combined with stiletto pumps. To make the whole look even more glamorous, you can add a tuxedo jacket and some pretty jewelry.
Trust me, when you leave your house looking like this, people will mistake you for some of the most popular Victoria’s Secret models.
And finally, the last idea I have for you are mules. The best thing about them is that they can make your whole look either dressy or casual.
If you’re looking for a more formal look, choose the ones with heels. Combining that and a fitted romper is a great way to look stylish and professional. You can also add a same-color bag to match your whole outfit and make you even more fabulous.
However, in case you’re more interested in a casual look, feel free to get the flat mules. They are equally beautiful, just maybe a bit more comfortable. It’s a great idea to combine it with a light coat or a pullover depending on the season of the year.

I didn’t lie when I told you you can wear rompers on a beach but also to a wedding ceremony. The secret to it is adding the right accessories and picking the right pair of shoes.
