Designing ABC's Of Clothes For A Funeral

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.

Men do well to choose a conservative suit. Black, grey or dark blue are the best choices in color. Your shirt needs to be crisp with a white collar. Choose a conservative tie and tone down the jewelry to a wedding band and watch. For funerals in the winter, you may add a black or other dark colored trench coat.

Generally it is best to hire a sitter for younger children, unless the service is for an immediate member of one's family. Teens should use the same approach as adults. Preteen boys may choose a white shirt and tie for the service.

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.
