If you haven’t binge-watched Netflix’s latest show, The Queen’s Gambit, we recommend you do so already. And no, you don’t need to know chess to watch the show. The protagonist and chess prodigy, Beth Harmon, played by actor Anya Taylor-Joy, beats almost every male opponent (and some are top champions in the world). And she does so with utmost poise, dressed in the most elegant clothes. While the limited series focuses on her love for chess, how she deals with addiction and breaks stereotypes during her chess championships, there’s something else that has made a huge buzz: her evolving wardrobe.

From A-line silhouettes to checked printed ensembles, we can’t get enough of the chess genius’ sartorial choices that are reminiscent of the ’60s fashion. Swipe through for a glimpse of the looks that have caught our attention from The Queen’s Gambit:

Shopping in style
If there's one thing we know about Beth, it's that she loves to spend her money on clothes. Even while shopping, she wears the best outfits. The pink-checked woolen trench coat elevated her grey textured dress.

More checks? Yes, please!

The queen of minimalism
Beth kept it simple, yet sophisticated with a maroon, sleeveless dress.
Tone-on-tone on point
Beth mixed light and dark yellow shades with her peter pan collared tee and A-line midi skirt.
Here to win
When Beth arrives in Russia for her final game with Vasily Burgov, she comes with the mindset to win and this look is proof. She oozed finesse with a black belted trench and long, straight-fit pants.
The style of a winner
In the last scene after she beat Burgov, Beth wore an all-white ensemble which is said to be inspired by the white queen chess piece.
