The Basics Of Clothes To Wear To A Funeral

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.

Females do well in selecting black for the occasion. Whether you select a suit or dress, the color is versatile yet respectful. Black can give a dressy and conservative option. It speaks of the honor you are paying the individual. Avoid the use of any loud or otherwise splashy colors. Grey and navy are also appropriate if you prefer something other than black. Outfits should cover the shoulders as well as the knees. Choose conservative and comfortable shoes, especially if you are attending a graveside service.

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.

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.

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.
