Basic Details Of Proper Funeral Clothes

Dress for a memorial service should be conservative. The funeral clothes you choose reflect your own respect and recognition that the occasion is to honor your friend or loved one. Choosing the appropriate clothing will ensure you are more comfortable and able to focus on the task at hand.

Black is a good color for everyone. Women do well in either a dress or suit. The dark colors offer versatility while showing one's respect. It can offer a conservative, yet dressy option that speaks of the honor you are paying the individual. One should avoid splashy or loud colors. Grey and navy are good alternatives for those preferring a color other than black. The outfit should cover both the knees and shoulders. Shoes should be conservative as well as comfortable, especially if attending graveside services.

For men, a conservative suit is the best choice. Black, dark blue or grey offer the best color choices. Shirts should be crisp and have a white color. Your tie should be conservative and jewelry limited to your wedding band and a watch. In the winter, consider adding a dark trench coat.

In most cases, younger children should be left with a sitter unless the service is for an immediate family member. Older children and teens should follow the dress of their parent of the same sex. Preteen boys may attend with a white shirt and tie.

Be sure to bring an umbrella if the service is scheduled out of doors. It is much more comfortable if you are dry. Place an extra handkerchief in your pocket for the day.

Select funeral clothes to show respect for individuals who have passed. Dark clothing is the best choice, with black the preferable color. Appropriate dress can also be comfortable. If there is a chance you will need to stand for an extended period, wear comfortable shoes.
