  • The last funeral I attended was back in April for my Aunt. I wore pants and a tunic.

  • I would say darker colors with respectable fit and neckline. Dress, skirt or slacks.

  • I've been told it's okay to wear dark, solid colors that are not black. I've done it, so I hope it's okay.

  • Think Job interview at an attorney's office. If You would wear it to that kind of interview you can wear it to funeral.

  • I don't wear dress pants can I get away with a pair of dark jeans? With a nice appropriate top.

  • Last funeral, I wore dressy black pants and a grey sweater.

    Funeral before that, my grandma asked everyone to dress is red (my grandfather who passed loved red.)

    Before that I wore black pants and a dark blue blouse.

  • Of course you can wear dark jeans ..no one cares whether you can afford nice clothes or not, only that you're there to show support.

  • IMO you dress somberly, quiet colors if not black or navy blue.
    I think dresses are more appropriate but considering that it is winter and nice pantsuit would be good too.
    It should not be causal dress.

  • I think black at a funeral is pretty passe, TBH... but I guess it depends on the nature of the person who has passed away, when it comes right down to it. The last funeral I attended was my uncle's in the summer - it was held in a barn, actually, and was definitely more a celebration of how amazing he was. Nobody wore black - my sisters and I wore summer dresses with cardigans over top. Even my auntie wore a nice summer skirt with a pink top.

    That said, I'm sorry for your loss, however close you were to the person who passed.
