Women’s Guide What to Wear to a Funeral 72 Practical Tips

Today’s topic is what to wear at a funeral. I think what is appropriate for that kind of event. There should not be way too much legs, way too much cleavage. It should be conservative, classy and ladylike.

We see a white look that can be used for a funeral event. A young lady is wearing a long white slim coat, maxi slip dress, and white low heel pumps. The outfit is completed with classic sunglasses,s, and a bam bag.

Skip relaxed and oversized looks. If the funeral is casual, then keep the dress code simple, a sweater and some good pants will be enough. Stick to the basics. Avoid festive looks, they are for weddings.

What you gonna wear. Of course black, but you can try something else. So, my first rule, realize it is not a fashion show or a glamour party. Too festive, fashionable is a no! Don’t look like a superstar. You want to dress respectably. Cover up yourself in a nice dress, and layer it with some good coat.

We see a wrap dark blue long-sleeve knee-length dress completed with metallic heeled ankle-strap sandals:

  1. You say it’s okay to wear white to the funeral, is it so? If I will wear white I guessI will look ridiculous!!!! I never seen people wearing white at funerals!!!

  2. You need to keep your dressing very simple when you attend or when you are at anyone’s funeral. You have shared very much helpful options to wear at a funeral. Thank you for listing it and sharing it with us.

    1. My pleasure, Dear Leslie! You are right about keeping things simple. I remember one time someone told me about the funeral of my classmate, and I didn’t know about it, I found out where the ceremony will be, but I had no time to change, that’s why I went in the same clothes I was wearing at the office that day. It was a classic blue blazer, white blouse and black pencil skirt with black heels. You know what? No one said anything to me. Just keep it simple, and please, don’t wear anything with a deep neckline or sheer clothes, that really looks ridiculous!
