How to Get Beth Harmon's Covetable Style From The Queen's Gambit
With 62 million households binging The Queen's Gambit in its first 28 days on Netflix, I know more than a few of us were watching for character Beth Harmon's style. As Beth proves more proficient on the international chess stage, she also increases her wardrobe budget with covetable looks from the '50s and '60s. Many are inspired by Audrey Hepburn. The show is set during the golden age of travel, when PanAm ruled the airways and, as evidenced by Beth and her mother, martinis flowed.
People really dressed up to travel during that time. Like all of the outfits we've been saving up, someday when we travel again, we'll start looking for stylish and comfortable looks embodying Beth Harmon. One look that caught my eye in particular is when Beth travels to Russia in the final episode. It is stylish, chic, and functional. It includes a jacket with pockets that hold your passport and a turtleneck because airplanes are usually cold. I couldn't believe when I saw a similar look on Athleta's website! The fitness and lifestyle brand has a great selection of looks in comfortable, stain-resistant fabrics. Check out my selections, and try these outfits for yourself.
Athleta Foresthill Merino Wool Ascent Turtleneck
It's inspired by '60s mod, so be sure to add this warm Athleta Foresthill Merino Wool Ascent Turtleneck ($79) under your blazer just like Beth would!
Athleta Winona Midi Support Dress
A customer favorite, the Athleta Winona Midi Support Dress ($128) is great for travel. It's wrinkle free and quick drying, perfect for days living out of a suitcase. It also provides comfortable support, and its well-designed back makes it look just as lovely with a pair of heels as with a pair of flat sandals.
Athleta Trekkie Hike Pant
Style meets function with the Athleta Trekkie Hike Pant ($98); it's a customer favorite, and it's easy to see why. These pants can take you from hiking to shopping and everything in between. Really! There's even a cinchable drawcord at the hem to let you adjust your fit on the fly. Why not look chic the next time you're on the trails?
