In the Western world, the colors of black are traditionally worn when attending a funeral. Notwithstanding this fact, there are countries in other areas of the globe that traditionally don different colored clothing to funerals.

In the Hindu culture, the colors of white represent purity and are traditionally worn at funerals to show respect to the deceased and the deceased’s family.

Similarly, in China and in numerous other Asian cultures, white colors are traditionally worn at funerals, as well. 

Interestingly enough, pink colors are traditionally worn in China by funeral attendees if the deceased is eighty years old or older, as the Chinese believe that living to eighty or beyond is a cause for celebration, rather than a cause for mourning. 

Conversely, widows in Thailand wear purple colors when mourning, while the other funeral attendees are expected to wear black colors. In Thailand the colors of purple represent sorrow.

In Latin America, every November a celebration occurs called Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, which is a lively celebration of both life and death. The festival originated in Mexico, although, the occasion is widely celebrated throughout Latin America. Día de los Muertos is a two day festival that celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, beverages/spirits, parties and activities that the deceased enjoyed while alive. The most well known symbols of this festival are “calacas,” or skeletons, and “calaveras,” or skulls. This festival comprises vibrant colors, therefore, it is traditional to wear skull masks or apply skull face paint in honor and remembrance of the departed. Different colors have different meanings during Día de los Muertos; yellow represents the sun and unity, red represents blood and life, purple represents mourning, pink represents happiness, and white represents purity and hope.

Funeral Colors And The Western World 

When attending a funeral, it is important to note that the families of the deceased often have special attire requests named by the wishes of the deceased. Examples of this would be not to wear a tie or only to wear brightly colored attire.

Moreover, an overall demure appearance is appropriate for most traditional Western funerals. Understated hair styles, cosmetics and accessories are always safe choices. 

Quite often the importance of color is underestimated or completely overlooked, with the exception of interviews and funerals, even though, color is a fundamental aspect in the lives of all individuals and in all areas of life.

Additionally, people often confuse the temperatures of colors. Makeup artists, stylists, designers and most other industry professionals, categorize blues, greens and purples, as cool colors and reds, yellows and oranges, as warm colors and nothing could be further from the truth, as all colors can be cool or warm.

In this Blog Post, the colors of navy, purple, green, burgundy, brown, gray and black are offered, as appropriate colors for funeral attendees to wear to Western funerals.  

The colors of dark blue, dark purple, dark green, burgundy, brown, medium to dark gray and gunmetal pair fittingly for a solemn and conservative gathering. These dark shades are in line with the colors of black and are more suitable for individuals that have wardrobes that comprise their superlative colors, founded on their inherent DNA predilections.

While black is considered to be traditional funeral attire, the variety of colors mentioned above are all considered to be acceptable for this type of occasion in the American culture.

For further information and in general, it is best to attempt to avoid colors such as reds, yellows, pinks, oranges and whites unless otherwise specified by the family of the deceased.
