What to Wear to a Funeral

Many people feel anxious about attending a funeral: knowing what to wear, what to say and how to respectfully express sympathy to the grieving. You want to feel comfortable and relaxed when attending a funeral, not anxious about your clothing. Here are some basic guidelines for what to wear:

Funeral attire is traditionally all black, but dark or muted colors are also acceptable. Business attire, such as a dress or suit is sufficient for most funerals.

Women’s Attire at a Funeral

  • Most women wear a dress or skirt to a funeral, although dress slacks are usually suitable. Shoulders should be covered, especially if the service is in a place of worship. Think practical when planning your wardrobe for a funeral. Consider the weather, the place and the type of funeral. Wear comfortable shoes and jacket if needed.
  • The colors need to be professional and conservative. Black, grey, navy or neutral are safe. You don’t want to draw attention to yourself.

Men’s Attire at a Funeral

  • Men generally wear suits when attending a funeral. Black is best, however, grey and navy are also acceptable with a white shirt and tie.

Children’s Attire at a Funeral

The rules aren’t so rigid when it comes to children.

  • Little boys should wear dark colors, preferably a suit. Try to avoid jeans, tennis shoes or casual attire.
  • Little Girls can wear dresses or skirts in dark or neutral colors.

  2. Hello!
    And as for the forms? Measurements are maxi bags are large though often carried by hand, the lines do not have middle ground, modern, square or round and feminine. The bags are carried by hand or under your arm, point out that even the clutch, except for the small jeweled versions, lengthen the measures appearing flat but at the same time almost spacious.Coach Cross Body Purses Coach Factory Outlet Coach Outlet Handbags 70% Off Coach.com Outlet Coach Outlet Handbags Bags Purses Outlet Stores -80%Off- Coach Factory Outlet Coach Outlet Store Online Coach Outlet Store Online Coach Outlet York Offer Coach Factory Outlet Save Big At Coach Outlet Stores Coach Factory Outlet Coach Store Nearest You Coach Outlet Coach Outlet USA Coach Outlet Online Coach Factory Outlet Fall 2014 Coach Factory Save Big At Coach Outlet Stores Coach Handbags Outlet Coach Handbags And Other Designer Coach Factory Outlet Coach Factory Fall 2014 Coach Outlet Online Coach Outlet York Offer Coach Outlet Store Online Coach Outlet Store bags Coach Outlet Coach Outlet Store Online Fall 2014 Coach Outlet Online Ohio State Strength Coach Coach Outlet Online Ohio State Strength Coach Coach Factory Outlet Coach Outlet USA Coach Black Friday Coach Black Friday Handbags Chanel Black Friday Save Up to 80% Off Now!
