In Season 2, Episode 7 of 'Outlander' Claire Fraser wears a long black dress with a black lace prayer shawl to the graveside of "Faith" where she and Jamie place a St. Andrew apostle spoon on her stone marker.
Claire's black mourning gown has an ivory off-white satin inset and long sleeves with white ruffled cuffs. She is wrapped in a long black lace veil that covers her head and shoulders.
Claire's floral mantilla head-covering reflects the somber grief of this very sorrowful occasion. Anyone who has lost a loved one knows that this is a memory that stays with you forever, and is not a feeling that you ever truly overcome.
