Cravats come in a range of colours and are great special occasion accessories to wear with boys' suits and boys' special occasion outfits. Cravats work especially well with boys' 4 piece suits comprising of a jacket, a pair of formal trousers, a waistcoat and boys shirt. However, if the boy's suit of your choice does not include a waistcoat, alternatives to cravats should be worn since cravats are often reserved for very formal special occasion outfits which include a waistcoat, shirt and a suit jacket. Alternatives to cravats include boys' ties, boys' bow ties and boys' elasticated ties. 4 Piece Boys Suits which include a cravat are generally worn at very formal occasions such as weddings so cravats are the special occasion accessories which can add the finishing touch to boys' wedding or special occasion suits. Regular collar shirts and wing collar shirts make the best accompaniments to cravat and waistcoat combinations. Also for a coordinated boy's special occasion outfit, matching waistcoats and cravats complement each other perfectly. Alternatively for a trendy twist consider wearing a bold coloured cravat with a patterned or plain waistcoat accompanied by a white shirt. Finally, remember to complete the boys special occasion outit of your choice with a pair of formal boys shoes.
