Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger portrayed the impressively bundled up Catherine Killigrew in this 1614 portrait. The integration of lace bands with bands of sheer material in her cape is impressive. It looks like she's dressed in layers for autumn so the ruff is replaced with a flaring lace-edged collar attached to her cape. Underneath that appears to be a tan wrap and beneath that a buttoned jacket.
