O/T Help! What to wear?

    I'm going to a funeral of a close family friend on friday and the widow has requested that people don't wear black. This leaves me worried about what to do as all I own are jeans and black work trousers!
    I don't own anything smartish so I'm off shopping tomorrow. I'd wear a skirt but I'm so self conscious I'd rather stick to trousers. I was thinking a tunic type thing but that trend seems to be over sadly. It has to be something comfortable as I will be at their house afterwards.

    Help anyone? Colours/styles any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry about your news. How about some 3/4 trousers and a floaty tunic top? Sounds like these are people who are full of joy so i think they'll not mind! Good luck.

    Next have some lovely dresses which are too short to wear as dresses (for me) but are nice over linen trousers.

    Sticky I will succeed!!!

    Sorry for your loss *hugs*

    I was at my Gran's funeral last week and she didn't want us to wear black, but I did on the bottom - black trousers. I teamed it with a red top (her fave colour). I wanted to respect her wishes but not look like I was off to a party kinda thing.

    If you want coloured trousers, why not some soft grey pinstriped (flattering hehe) and a soft pink top? I love those colours together xxx

    First, I'm sorry for your loss :hug99:
    Don't wear anythingto bright or vibrant. Pastel colours are always good. A lost sleeved top or turtleneck with black/grey trousers, a nice jacket and flat shoes might be a way to go.

    I'm not an expert at fashion, but it's an idea!

    Sorry to hear about your family friend hun.

    Find a colour that suits you, and a style you like!!!
    There are lots of nice 3/4 trousers and linen mix trousers about at the moment, and I have seen quite a few tunic type tops.

    Maybe if you feel most comfortable in black, something plum coloured or a darker shade of blue might be an idea?

    If you feel comfortable in a tunic top wear it. I didnt wear black at my dads funeral, I wore a black skirt and a very purple coloured long top, something I felt comfortable in and liked.

    I would go for a nice summer dress,there are so many to choose from, trust me no-one will be looking at what you are wearing anyway,so just as long as you feel comfortable/smart. Its always the first thing we think of when an occasion comes up.'what shall I wear' but its not the most important ,its time for familys and friends to support each other.x

    I agree with Eye, it's not what you are wearing but that you will be there to pay your respects. At my sister's funeral earlier this year I wore a grey skirt, black top and a lovely bright red jacket - I just knew she would approve.

    If you struggle with the shopping, your black trousers with a lovely new top - in any colour - would be more than acceptable.

    I hope your day goes OK.
