What do I wear to a funeral?

I plan on wearing black dress pants with a black shirt. The shirt is a little low cut, so I was thinking about wearing a shirt underneath. Would a colored shirt be inappropriate? Which colors would be okay? Ive never attended a funeral before.

  • Nothing bright is all. You don't need to wear all black, as long as the colors are muted.
    Deep purple, deep green, dark blue, brown are all fine colors.
    For an inside shirt, dark red is also ok, if you don't have any other color to wear.

    Light colors for an inside shirt is also ok. Just, nothing bright.

  • You don't have to go with all black as long as what you wear is conservative and the colors are understated.
