What Should I Wear to a Funeral?


Question: What Should I Wear to a Funeral?

Because a funeral is a somber occasion, it is best to dress in conservative colors and styles. You don’t have to wear black, but you will probably want to avoid a bright floral dress or necktie. It is also not appropriate to show too much skin.

Women may wear skirts and blouses, dresses, or pantsuits. A hat is optional, but if it obstructs the view of someone during the services, it should be removed.

Men may wear suits or dress trousers, dress shirts, and jackets. If a hat is worn, it must be removed when indoors.
