Step 1: Wear dark colors Choose dark colors. While black is traditional and safe, dark blues and grays are also acceptable. Step 2: Dress for house of worship or a job interview Dress as you would for a job interview or house of worship. A suit, collared shirt, and tie are appropriate for men. Women may wear a pantsuit, skirt suit, or a modest dress that covers the shoulders or is accompanied by a wrap. Tip Pallbearers need a sports jacket and tie. Step 3: Be sensitive to religious customs Be sensitive to the dress codes of certain religious or cultural customs. Ask in advance, if you can. Tip Some Christian, Muslim, and Jewish denominations require mourners to wear a headscarf or a yarmulke, or skullcap. Step 4: Wear appropriate accessories Wear appropriate accessories, such as closed-toe shoes, a muted color tie, and understated jewelry. Hats should be formal and not too big or flashy. Step 5: Bring a handkerchief and umbrella Have a handkerchief handy for yourself or to lend to someone in need. An umbrella is also a good idea for hot or rainy outdoor funerals. Did You Know? The world's oldest, continually used cemetery is The Mount of Olives in Israel.
