Today’s topic is dedicated to shoes for a funeral that women can wear. Before you throw tomatoes at me, I want to say a couple of things in my defense. First of all, everything is individual, we all are different and cultures are various and secondly, all depends on where did he or she worked, and what were his or her style preferences. I hope this will clear things up after you see all the possible ideas on what shoes you can wear to a funeral.
We see a bulky black coat styled with a turtleneck sweater in camel paired with black slim jeans and lace-up black combat boots. Complete this style by adding Wayfarer sunglasses and brown leather bag.
Shoes For A Funeral
There are lots of talks going on regarding funeral dress code. I think everything depends on the person’s lifestyle, if the ceremony is dedicated to a rock star, then it’s acceptable to wear some rock music attributes. You get the idea, what I am trying to say?
We see a nice all in black outfit idea. A black leather jacket, a knitted midi dress in black completed with black sneakers.
That’s why dress shoes, loafers, or dark sneakers should be acceptable, you can match them with shorts, skirts, jumpsuits and whatever you like. You definitely need the shoes that are comfortable, and it’s an important thing, as many ceremonies include walking, sitting, standing, so you better go for the footwear that you can wear for a long time during the day.
If you want to wear sneakers or slip-on shoes, then make sure, they are dark-colored. There can be a relaxed ceremony that is not super formal, that’s why for some reason it’s okay to wear dark tennis shoes or Converse kicks. If it’s a more formal funeral, a so-called traditional one, then you better go for a black dress and black shoes.
What you definitely should avoid is anything too glittering, sequins, metallic fabrics, fun prints, and other distracting or flashy pieces. Plus, avoid by any circumstances shoes like flip-flops. Sure, the best way is to go for a conservative option, so you are saving time and effort. Don’t show too much flesh, like mini skirts, low cut blouses, crop tops, bodycon, sheer shirts, mini dresses. In other words, follow the dress code for the church.
Speaking of footwear toes, then most would say that peep-toes are inappropriate, but I think all depends on the overall outfit. You can go for open-toe shoes, just make sure everything is balanced.
Speaking of colors, then black, dark grey, deep blue, brown, light grey, are acceptable for ceremonies. Bright pink, fresh yellow, neon, and other bright colors are not acceptable, but it depends on many other circumstances. I don’t think colored shoes with a black dress are inappropriate. People should hardly be focussing on your shoes on such an occasion. Personally, I think you could wear colored shoes.
