    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

    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.
