The Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney styles her clericals with a yellow suit with statement broach for a rector’s anniversary.
This is beautiful, elegant, entirely professional, dignified and celebratory. This is a clergywoman who knows who she is, knows how to dress for a special occasion, and has the whole thing put together from head to toe. Brava.
A few things about reading this image: I am struck by the interplay of influences here. First and foremost, she is a lady-like in a beautiful daffodil yellow suit, and pointy heels. The jewelry is also traditionally feminine. However: note the harmonious inclusion of decidedly contemporary elements such as Wil’s nose ring and sunglasses and very modern, sexy hair. The combined effect is striking. As a traditionalist, I love it. As a contemporary, strong woman, I love it. I privately call this look “Lady Leader,” and it’s a joy to see it done so beautifully.
