With a long history and a sure fire way to spruce up any tuxedo outfit, are spats. Spats are a a historical accessory that is made from a short cloth and used to cover the upper part of your footwear - mainly your instep and ankle. They were traditionally work by men in the early 20th Centuries for a posh and stylish addition - but more importantly, to protect and cover a man's shoes from being outside in inclement weather. 

Formal spats can definitely draw attention as they are not extremely common in today's accessory and formal wear world. Assuring a perfect fit is probably the most prominent thing when it comes to choosing to wear spats. The spats should cover the vamp seam on the shoe and lay without causing any wrinkles. If there are too small or too large, they won't look right and they will definitely not fit the right either.

Formal spats are available in many colors, although they are often available in more classic colors, such as white, black, or grey. When wearing spats, the point is not to attract too much attention, which is why bright colors are not typically recommended. Since spats are not as common today, you will most likely only see them being worn for very formal and special events like within an orchestra performance, black tie weddings, or with costumes in theater productions.

A morning coat was typically worn with spats, as it was the most popular, luxurious and expected look for this unique accessory. Formal spats remain a great way to add style to your outfit, especially if you're invited to a fairly formal event where you want to look your best.
