Dressing appropriately for the visitation at the funeral home, church service, or interment ceremony is a sign of respect to the decedent and the surviving family members. In most cases, it’s advisable to wear somber, conservative clothing. Men can wear a suit and tie. Ladies can wear a dress or skirt, blouse, and blazer. Try to avoid selecting clothing with bright colors or flashy patterns. It’s also generally a good idea to wear minimal, conservative makeup and jewelry, if any.

This funeral director recommends contacting the funeral home or the immediate family to find out if there are any clothing preferences. Some families prefer that mourners wear an all-black outfit, for example.
