Fab Finding Follow Up: Sad But True, A Funeral

Funerals are never planned, but we all end up attending one sooner or later. I always find choosing the appropriate thing to wear a difficult task — you have to balance subtle with chic, and even err on the conservative side.

Last week I asked what to wear if you found yourself attending a funeral this Fall. I started you off with this Lanvin Pearls & Satin Necklace, $450, because it's understatedly chic — just make sure you put the bow in the back! To see all the Fall funeral Fab Finds, go here.

Let's see what you all came up with!

Oh! Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits with and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

Look #1, created by leeluvfashion is so sophisticated. All the pieces have clean lines and that MJ bag is hands down amazing!

To see a couple more,

Look #2, created by aimeeb is a good pants option. This outfit is easy to throw on when you're in a time crunch, but the outcome is fashionably occasion appropriate.

Look #3, created by artiksun is tradition-inspired. Some prefer to cover their head for funerals, and this veil is a cute option. She also threw in a box of Kleenex — just in case.

Wow...I don't think I'd be worrying about whether to wear a black Chanel shift or a Dolce and Gabbana pencil skirt if someone I knew just died.

It is a matter of etiquette and respect. I remember my mother saying when I was young that it is inappropriate to buy new clothing for a funeral. Most likely though most are too busy grieving or thinking about their lost loved ones to bother to notice what someone else is wearing.

I don't think this post is disturbing at all...people should know how to dress appropriately for a funeral. If you wear something too revealing or too casual people might think your being disrespectful. Personally i think a funeral should be more formal, a memorial service a little more casual...

I don't like this idea.. When my grandma died I wasn't trying to figure out how to look chic and I didn't have time to go shopping, I was too busy travelling back to my family home and then spending the rest of the time with my family.

I meant to add, at my mom's funeral, me and my sister wore off-white to celebrate her life, she was finally free from the pain of cancer.

I celebrate their life and wear appropriate clothing, I love the black pearl tie necklace and the black wrap dress.

in my country you wear black and cover your heads if your females and wear sarongs over your dresses or skirts since you will be fetching water, cooking, doing dishes. Aint'no time to look fab at an African funeral.

Thank you Fab! This was a smart Fab Finding because it's something that you will have to dress for at some point in your life. Very Classy and Lovely looks Aimmeb and Artiksun.

Although the premise for this challenge/post makes me uncomfortable and a little upset (a fab funeral? seriously?), I have to admit that dressing nicely/appropriately for a funeral something I think about. My grandmother just passed a few weeks ago, and I wore a black dress that I felt comfortable in and pink jewelry that belonged to my grandmother and complemented the colors of the flowers we chose. I wasn't worried about being chic, but it bothered me that some people who came to the service wore jeans, or sneakers, which is stupid because (a) she wouldnt have cared, and (b) what is important is that she is remembered and honored.. I dont know. I guess everyone mourns in different ways. I like that your family wears bright colors to funerals, MarialsTipsy - what a great idea.

In my huge family (intermediate and extended)at funerals you never wear black, you wear bright colors. yes, it is sad that youve lost a loved one but theyre going into heaven and thats not a bad thing. So normally we dont wear black.

Most of the funerals I have attended have been for very close relatives and I've been too sad/distraught to concern myself much with what I'm wearing. I've typically just worn a black dress with heels.
