What should I wear to a memoral service? My friend’s Mother passed away & I plan on going to her memorial service.

What should I wear to a memoral service?Years ago black and dark gray clothing was appropriate attire for a memorial service or funeral. Memorial services vary and people dress much more casually today so clothing isn’t limited to just black or dark gray. However your attire attire should  be in good taste, not too short, not too tight and not too low cut, clean, neat, and pressed. Separates, a dress, suit or pants and a top all can be worn to a memorial service. Go easy on the jewelry and makeup and avoid anything that says glitzy. You are attending to show your respect for and honoring someone who died. Memorial services usually takes place after the body has been buried or cremated. They can take place any time after the death of someone, from a week to a year. Memorial services may be held in any location and have no formal structure.  Usually friends and relatives say something about the deceased at a memorial service and a reception is held afterward.

The Little Black Dress – The Wardrobe Essential
“The Little Black Dress” has been described as sophisticated, sexy, provocative, chic, elegant, practical, seductive, correct, and ageless. The fashion designer, Christian Dior, said ” You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it on almost any occasion. A little black frock is essential to a woman’s wardrobe.” What’s great about “The Little Black Dress” is that it looks fabulous with or without jewelry. You can wear a scarf with it for an interesting effect and it doesn’t show dirt if you take it traveling. In addition black is slimming so you’ll look a few pounds less when wearing it. * The Duchess of Windsor
