Creating an Occasionwear Look for Your Little Boy
While it is relatively easy to select an occasionwear look for a little girl, you might have a little trouble trying to put together a special event outfit for your young boy. If you have been searching around in vain for the right look, Vertbaudet have an extensive boys clothes collection that includes an occasionwear line. It features many different looks for you to choose from to create the best outfit for your special event. Once you have selected the most suitable items, you will be surprised how simple it can be to create the complete occasionwear look for your boy.
Deciding which occasionwear look to try
In general, the best occasionwear clothing items for boys are dress shirts, bow ties, blazers and dress trousers. But how do you decide which ones to buy? A good rule of thumb is to use the event itself as a guide. For example, if you are going to a wedding, you would probably want to select a rather formal outfit. However, if the wedding is being held outdoors, during the summer, you might select something that your son can wear without getting overheated or stuffy.
On the other hand, if the special occasion is a garden party, you might choose a less formal look and instead opt for something more casual. You will also want to use the time of year as a guide when deciding on an occasionwear look. If it is winter, you will naturally choose something layered and warm. If the event is being held in the summer, however, it would be better to select something breathable and lightweight that will not make your child feel weighed down. For a summer garden party, a boys’ linen suit is a perfect occasionwear look, since the fabric is lightweight and comfortable to wear outdoors. The Vertbaudet fashion catalogue contains many linen suits for young boys on pages 86-93.
Occasionwear clothing items for boys
A simple button-up boys’ shirt makes a great top for any occasionwear look, since you can easily add a few more formal touches with a blazer and a bow tie, for example. Shirts are available in either long-sleeved or short-sleeved and they come in various colours. If your goal is selecting a shirt that can be matched with several pairs of trousers, you might opt for a neutral colour, such as white, beige or grey. Once you have decided on the shirt, it is time to pick out a pair of pants for the occasion. Striped chinos work for almost any event, since the print is understated and the fabric wears well with any type of jacket. To add a little more flair, go for a pair of straight trousers with braces.
The type of top depends largely on how formal the event is going to be. If you are hosting a formal occasion, you might choose a boys’ button-up blazer with a collar. However, if it is a less formal affair, you may decide to have your boy don a pullover or sweater, either of which will be entirely suitable.
