Inspiration Board: Styling a Jumpsuit

Yesterday morning I put on my worn a total of one time black jumpsuit and got completely stuck. I stood in front of my closet, debating on what shoes would work - Do I want black shoes with a black jumpsuit? Wouldn't that look boring? Why do pumps look so out of place with this thing? The skinny pants end right on my ankles, should I tuck them into my shoes if I have ankle straps? I could wear my flat sandals but they're black too... on and on I went until I finally gave up and put on something else completely!

Obviously I need to remedy my inability to wear something in my closet so I decided I would go out looking for examples of how various store style their stock - if they can do it, so can I! Or at least I can copy what they do :P

I included various styles to make this more useful for more people, but I would say mine in particular is most like the one on the bottom left. It's neat to see how Hmm, but I think I really like the the look of pale beige platform sandals with a black jumpsuit, and I never thought about rolling up the hems to make them cropped!

Interestingly, it seems that besides wearing a belt can be cute but not necessary to look good in a jumpsuit - my worry about being monotone seems silly in retrospect, that's kinda the point! Maybe a bright necklace to give color, but I'm obviously overthinking my outfits at this point :O So I promise I will Style Challenge it up next week with a cute but not obsessive jumpsuit look!
