    A below the knees skirt is appropriate but the light cotton will keep you cool. Bright shoes keep you from looking too somber.

  2. Black is good for a funeral. . but it attracts heat. . and is formal. .

    well i found this page for you;

    look through all the pages there are many black dresses and alot of other colors too!
    Hope That Helps!

  3. In this day and age, black is not required, but good taste and regard for the deceased and his/her family is! Casual shorts and a T-shirt is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE! A dress, or skirt and blouse, or tailored slacks and blouse (conservative), or pant suit are OK. Bright/loud colors are not OK, but muted tasteful colors are. (In some cultures red is the color of mourning, not black. In others, it’s white. )

    LoveLife’s suggestion to look at Nordstrom’s website is good. My picks from that site would be:

    The following dresses would be good if you wore a cotton short sleeved “shrug” to cover your chest/cleavage/upper arms for modesty and respect:

    Ruby Rox Floral Eyelet Strapless: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2968613/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Trixxi Watercolor Floral: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2976142/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Ruby Rox Pin Dot: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2988277/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Ruby Rox Floral Tube Dress: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2988271/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Velvet Torch dress: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2988739/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    As long as you bought the correct size (so it isn’t too tight in the bust, showing cleavage, too short) these dresses would be very nice all by themselves:

    Soprano Cross Back dress (in black OR blue) http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2996046/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Cap Sleeve Jersey: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2988601/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Velvet Torch Double V-Neck Dress: http://shop. nordstrom. com/S/2989083/0~2378467~2378483~2377032~6008190?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6008190&P=1

    Hope this helps.

  4. Just remember the rule of thumb when it comes to funerals and fashions. . . all the eyes will be on the dearly departed, as long as the deceased looks good, it really doesn’t matter what you look like. It’s not a fashion show.

  5. First of all, sorry. :(
    I’m going to a funeral myself, on Sunday.

    This is what I’m wearing:
    black tank
    black cover up (it’s kinda see through, which is why I’m wearing the tank)
    black leggings
    black flats with a bow
    silver necklace with a heart

    My hair is going to be curled, but I tie a bit back, and my bangs are to the side.

  6. really the only thing you can do is dress up it just is respectful you gotta do what you gotta do

  7. The key is too buy natural fabrics which can breathe. Polyesters and acrylics are no good as they are unnatural fabrics which will just block off the air. Try to invest in cottons, linens, cashmere, wool, ramie and jute. Natural fibres like these, yes they are considered luxuries and will cost just that little bit extra, except it will be worth it as they are investments pieces which you can keep for a life time.

    For a funeral try something sophisticated yet relaxed-think Armani. Yes I understand Armani is not in everyone’s budget-I myself cant afford it however you can recreate the look for a much lower price.

    Consider this outfit:

    This dress is tasteful, breathable and not too formal. It is simple little black dress in cotton with straps which cross over at the back. Team it with classic silver or platinum jewellery and simplistic accessories

    Hope this helps :)
