Wedding Focus: Matching Children’s and Adult’s Outfits

Children have an important role to play in weddings and it can be difficult to plan the perfect outfit for them. The ideal combination is one where they will enjoy dressing up but will also be comfortable for the whole day.

A wedding is often the first occasion where they get to wear a formal outfit and children enjoy wearing a similar outfit to the adults taking part. Many of our kilt outfits are made in the adults and children’s sizes to help create the perfect match.

Prince Charlie Outfit

Capture Capture-001

The most formal of outfits. The smaller kilts, jackets and accessories create a fabulous look for the children who have a lot of fun wearing these outfits.

The boys outfits are available in 4 of the same tartans as the men’s outfit or purchase a Bronze outfit for a matching custom tartan.


 Casual Outfit

Capture-002 A great option for warmer climates and for when you want to look the part but feel comfortable. The casual kilt outfit is the most popular option for children.

Wear the same tartan as the men’s outfit for a perfect match.



For both styles of outfits there are a range of stock tartans to choose from. There is also the option of having a kilt made in a custom tartan. Whilst the children’s kilt can only be worn for a couple of years, it’s then becomes a family heirloom that can be treasured and passed down to the next generation.

5 ways to wear your kilt

I often speak to people who decide to buy a kilt rather than hire one due to rising hire costs. It can make sense for your wallet even if you are wearing a kilt on 2 or 3 occasions. By changing just a few key items you can create a number of different outfits based around your kilt that are suitable for a whole range of occasions.

1. Prince Charlie Outfit

For most people this is the first kilt outfit they will wear. Most commonly seen at weddings and formal occasions the Prince Charlie outfit can be purchased from just £251.06 for a complete package. Worn with a bow tie this is the Scottish Equivalent of a black tie outfit.

 2. Make The Look Contemporary

Try wearing your Prince Charlie outfit with a  a Victoria collar shirt and ruched tie. Add a 5 button waistcoat to transform this outfit into a more contemporary look. Worn with our without the jacket this is now suitable for less formal events or a ceilidh.

3. Go Casual

It’s amazing the difference a shirt makes. A ghillie shirt is a great option for wearing your kilt to highland games and ceilidh’s. Wear this with a leather sporran and either your brogues or regular day shoes.

4. Everyday Wear

Team your kilt with a cashmere jumper for a kilt outfit which meets everyday requirements. You can add a clan or tartan tie to dress this outfit up.

5. Take it on Tour

There is no denying the Scots are in town for rugby or football matches when a kilted army of supporters arrive. Wear a rugby shirt with a poly-viscose kilt for this match day look. Suitable for travelling and match day, you’ll be able to travel light.

These are just a few suggestions for making the most of your kilt outfit. Other suggestions can be found on buyakilt.com. Share your outfit choices with a post or picture on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American and Scottish American friends.

More than 9 million American are Scottish or from Scottish decent. These links are proudly shown in a number of American tartans. Perhaps one of the most appropriate to wear today is the American Heritage tartan, (see below). This tartan was created for Americans with or without Celtic Heritage. You can see the colours red, white and blue, of the American flag represented in this tartan.

Traditionally held on the fourth Thursday in November this holiday has it’s roots in the Autumn harvest feasts held by Pilgrim settlers. This festival marks the start of the holiday season in the run up to Christmas.

We have a number of other American tartans, including a Scottish American tartan. These tartans look particularly great made as trews to wear at formal occasions, or a waistcoat made in your tartan to brighten up a traditional kilt outfit. These would make ideal gifts or a treat for yourself this party season.

We’d love to hear how you are celebrating this thanksgiving and if you’re putting a Scottish twist on your celebrations. Stop by our Facebook or Twitter page and let us know.
