When our April star Anya Taylor-Joy transformed herself into chess prodigy Beth Harmon on Netflix’s breakout hit The Queen’s Gambit, she gave us a newfound appreciation for the game—but also what she wore while dominating her opponents. Read on to see a few looks we loved from the show and how to achieve them, with or without a chess board to go with it.
Beth Harmon appreciates a clean and easy silhouette, because for a woman who’s got a big game ahead, it’s important to stick to an effortless formula that never detracts from the focus of the game. A simple, yet classic, turtleneck and pleated full skirt is always a good way to go when facing big competition.
No one can deny the power of retail therapy. In a rare moment while taking her mind off the game, Beth treated herself to some new pieces on the show, and achieving her look is simple. Opt for a coat with muted tones that keeps a low profile but still has you standing out, with an easy dress to change in and out of when searching for the right thing. And we love how Beth appreciates a classic loafer—walking from store to store requires supreme comfort.
