Great Tips Of Selecting Appropriate Clothes For A Funeral

Attending a memorial service is often a stressful event. Selecting the correct funeral clothes can help you to be less stressed while showing your respect for the individual who has passed. The right clothing allow you to be more comfortable at the event and if necessary, focus on your own grief.

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.

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.

Unless the service is for their immediate family member, leave younger children with a sitter. If older children and teens attend the service, their clothing should reflect that of the same sex parent. With preteens, the dress can be a little more casual.

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.
