I hate to start off a week like this, but I want you to be ready. Most of us don’t want to ever have to think about going to funerals, but we’ve all been to them. Here’s the basics. Have a black dress in your closet that isn’t a cocktail dress and isn’t something you’d wear to the beach. It’s called a day dress and it should be conservative. Pair it with nude heels so that the attention stays on the dress and not your feet. Add in a few simple accessories, understated is key. And take a jacket. You never know if you’ll be chilly and most likely you may be visiting a grave site. I hope none of you have to refer to this post. But I do want you to be prepared. Because should it be someone you love, you won’t have much clarity to create an outfit that fits the occasion. And in your grief, you’ll still want to give them the honor that they deserve.
