Fashion to Watch: The Queen’s Gambit
The Netflix costume departments are really killing it lately, giving us one more reason to enjoy the latest binge. If you’re anything like me, and you find yourself destressing by diving into these fantasy worlds imagining yourself as the heroine and wearing all her cool outfits, you’ll love this fashion inspiration from the new miniseries, The Queen's Gambit.
The show follows the story of chess grandmaster Beth Harmon, played by Anya Taylor-Joy, and her story of obsession, addiction, and what it takes to be a champion and a woman in a field dominated by men in the ’60s.
Aside from being gorgeous and aspirational, Beth's wardrobe cleverly alludes to chess themes, from her signature check to the staple all-white outfit at the end of the season leaving her looking like the white queen chess piece. While all the men in the chess field during her time tend to dress rather boring and nerdy, Beth is a true style icon who doesn’t shy away from beating her opponents—and looking good while doing so.
From gingham to pastels, A-line tops with delicate detailing, or the perfect pairing of high-waisted mini skirts with woolen overcoats with matching gloves and berets, you’ll find yourself excited to see what she’ll be wearing next.
Inspired by the timeless Audrey Hepburn and Edie Sedgwick, here’s our modern take on how to dress like Beth.
