Which (if any) of these is appropriate for a funeral?

I won't have time to shop beforehand and after raiding my wardrobe these are the only semi-formal things I have which seem appropriate, although neither are particularly colourful or bright which is what has been specified.

I've never been to a funeral before and don't know any of the family well enough to check with them so would either of these work?

Dress would be worn with black tights.
Top would be worn with black trousers.

Have black pumps to go with either.

I think they are both fine

I like the pink top, especially considering the wear bright things request.

I personally prefer the dress

Thanks everyone smile

Think I'll go with the dress and blue cardigan as I feel more comfortable in that. The top is actually a kind of dull red rather than pink if that makes sense which is partly why I wasn't sure.

Seems very odd to be worrying about something so stupid under the circumstances hmm

The dress will be fine, maybe add a light coloured scarf if you have one, since they have requested bright colours.
