As you add text prior to  - or after -  the caret follows the anchor

.caret {
  display: inline;
  position: relative;
  top: 1em;
  left: -1.2em;
  padding-right: 0;
  margin-right: 0;
  width: 0;
}

a > .caret {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 0;
}

Color and size are controlled by CSS.
http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors.asp
http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-size.asp

This site has some interesting resources:

Here's the code example from above with the down-arrow styled for color and size.
<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- demo/temp_mosta.php -->
<!-- https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28958689/Putting-a-caret-beside-word-in-li-li.html -->
<html dir="ltr" lang="en-US">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />

<style type="text/css">
.caret:after {
    content:'\25BC';
    color:orange;
    font-size:4em;
}
</style>

<title>HTML5 Page in UTF-8 Encoding</title>
</head>
<body>

<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">Men <span class="caret"></span></a>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window

Outputs something like this.Caret styled with color orange and size 4em
