Anne of Denmark wears a somber black mourning dress in this 1612 portrait.
She wears a black modesty piece and her ruff has silvery bands on it. This isn't her mother's ruff - it appears to be free standing unlike 16th century ruffs that emerged from the neckline or partlet. She wears a mourner's attifet on her coiffure that extends down her shoulder.
