Funerals are obviously serious events that certainly don’t require over the top dressing. It is the time where each and every one is gathered to mourn for the loss of their loved one. And so dressing appropriately for such an event is essential and respectable, for the deceased and his family. So here are some tips to help you dress right for such a function.
Keep it simple
This is certainly not the place to parade around your fanciest sequin cocktail dress or something else that is equally attracting unwanted attention! But rather the place where you are expected to wear something simple and less attention gaining. We all understand that funerals are rather subdued events, so choosing something of the black shade is ideal and respectable. Also don’t choose something that has so much skin showing, it isn’t exactly the greatest thing to do as it is disrespectful in many ways!
Limit the skin
For a casual and fun occasion with your gal pals, you can always wear a mini skirt, low cut blouses or even evening jumpsuits Australia, but when it is a funeral that you are visiting make sure that you avoid these at all costs. Stick to outfits like blouses and skirts, dresses or even pantsuits that have limited skin showing and don’t emphasize on your figure. Even when you are accessorizing keep things simple. You might need to move about a lot and even have to walk on grass, so wearing your highest stilettoes isn’t practical. Instead wear more comfortable shoes like ballet flats or even low heel shoes.
Be more sensible with your outfits
To emphasize on the fact more, don’t ever think that this is the place where you should display yourself as a model for some magazine shoot. The deceased’s family isn’t exactly having the best time of their life, so as a guest it is your duty to pay due respect in every way not only by showing up to the funeral. Do put away the sexy and bring in the somber.
Tone down the accessories
Even when it comes to the accessories you wear, make sure that they are not the over the top kind with prints and huge flowers. You could however wear a simple bracelet or some shades to protect your eyes from the sun and whatnot. Remember though that simplicity is very important here!
If there is a particular dress code that has been specified do make sure to pay due respect to it by abiding by it as well!
