    A black cloud shadowed the weekend with  the sad news that country music singer Kelsea Ballerini‘s grandparents died within 39 hours of each other. If you know her music, Kelsea is no strange to loss. Accepting, healing and moving ahead stronger are themes in her debut album.

    Condolences, Kelsea. No one plans ahead to attend a funeral. You just need that black dress waiting when the time comes. With a heavy heart, my dress picks today highlight

    5 Classic Black Dresses for Funerals

    V back midi black dress

    Conservative, elegant and a perfect base layer for wakes and funerals, this black midi dress is comfortable for long days thanks to the spandex jersey. For church settings, the V back may be taboo, but with a jacket or cardi, your knee length black dress would certainly be appropriate. Priced under 100 dollars, this black dress is equally appropriate for cocktail receptions or date nights.

    Black lace shift

    The short bell sleeves on a black lace shift sets a somber tone with a soft touch. A black keyhole closure makes this A line shift easy to slip on and forgiving if your weight tends to fluctuate. Add a shawl for cooler settings or keep cool in this airy black shift.

    Long sleeves and a scalloped hem create an elegant black lace dress. A sophisticated style in mourning attire, the black sweetheart underlining gives sheer lace coverage over the shoulders and arms. With all of these details, it’s fortunate to find a lace funeral dress for less than $100.

    Fit and Flare Short Sleeve Dress

    Going from work to show your condolences at visiting hours? This black fit and flare dress takes you from the office to the funeral home or Shiva. Short sleeves and jersey knit keep the dress easy to wear and to style. Here is a versatile black dress that fits your under $50 budget.

    Promgirl black bateau ruched funeral dress

    A slim silhouette more your style for the office? Then this ¾ sleeve bateau neck dress might be your choice. A center ruched panel adds to the comfortable, flattering fit. For less than $75, this black jersey dress may be your go to dress for festive and somber occasions.

    My deepest condolences, Kelsea. Grieving, tears and sorrow make funerals a melancholy time. You search for happy memories, friends and family to support you through the events.

    The dress is really just a detail, but having a black dress in your closet means you can focus on the life and good times celebrated with your dear ones.
