    My grandfather just died and I'm flying out to his funeral tomorrow afternoon. I'm unsure what to wear to his funeral. I'm female. I have black and grey slacks that I figured I'd wear (I don't wear skirts), and many different colors of shirts. Should I wear black pants and a grey shirt, grey pants and a black shirt? I'm pretty sure the blacks won't match so that's a pretty bad idea. :hs:

    Input? Thanks. I'm style-challenged.

    It's going to be in Utah which is pretty toasty this time of year. All I have are short sleeved black shirts and a turtleneck black sweater. I have a lot of brightly colored shirts, but I don't think they're acceptable, what do you think? Mormon family.

    I usually just wear a shirt, a tie, and a jacket.

    It turns out that at MORMON funerals, everyone with a vagina wears a skirt. I was literally the only woman, out of probably 75 people who was wearing pants. Luckily, I'm already regarded as the black sheep of the family so it wasn't too much of a surprise!
