  • Sleeveless black dress,light jacket,low heels

    I'm confused as to what your grandmother being conservative in life has to do with your wardrobe? Were you planning on wearing sexually revealing clothing to her funeral? Funeral clothes are suppose to be conservative anyway

  • You can't be serious. At your age you should have the ability to show maturity and respect at a funeral of all places. If you want to pick up men, go to a bar.

    Wear something like the ladies above have suggested.

    ^^^  What does this have to do with appropriate funeral dress etiquette?  Why the need for a splash of red?  I think the only reason to do something like that is if it were something your grandmother gave you as a gift (broach, necklace, earrings or some kind of accessory).  Unless you are trying to attract attention in which case just be honest about it.  I don't think funerals are a good place to pick up men.
