When a loved one dies, wardrobe choices are usually not a high priority. However, choosing the proper clothing before going to the funeral home is essential. Wearing conservative, somber clothing shows your respect for the decedent and your fellow mourners. When it’s time to say a final goodbye, there are certain things you should avoid wearing. Never attend funeral services wearing excessively revealing clothing such as a mini skirt or tank top. Avoid casual clothing like T-shirts, jeans, and sweatshirts. Similarly, avoid casual shoes like flip flops.
It isn’t necessary to wear an all-black outfit. However, you should avoid wearing bright, flashy colors and “busy” patterns. Choose somber, dark clothing in shades of brown, gray, black, or dark blue.
