Observing ABC's Of The Correct Funeral Clothes

When preparing to attend a memorial service, one should choose conservative clothing. The funeral clothes you wear reflect your sense of respect for the friend or loved one. Selecting the appropriate clothing ensures you are comfortable and allows you to focus on the time of remembrance.

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 should choose a conservative suit. Colors of black, grey or dark blue are the best options. One's shirt should offer a crisp, white color. The tie selected needs to be conservative with jewelry limited to a watch and wedding band. During the colder months, the addition of a dark trench coat is appropriate.

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.

Take an umbrella as services often take place outside. If it rains, you will be more comfortable with the protection offered. Conservative hats are appropriate for both men and women. Do not forget to bring an extra handkerchief or tissues for the service.

Funeral clothes should be selected to show your respect for the person. They should be dark in color, preferably black. You should dress appropriately, yet in an outfit that is comfortable. Wear comfortable shoes for the occasions when you must stand an extended period.
