I remember my mother sending me back to change when I was gong to wear black pants to a rosary....that's stayed with me for nearly three decades! So...always a black skirt, knee length or longer, and a blouse or long sleeved sweater in white, black or a muted color like lavendar. Nothing bright unless that was specified. Last memorial I went to, we were told to wear Hawaiian shirts.
