I am immensely impressed with the Netflix series Queen’s Gambit. The storyline, cinematography, acting and yes…costumes is perfection. While the beginning of the show is a bit lackluster in terms of fashion, the second half clothes’ are marvelously modern when lead character, Beth Harmon, matures in the mid 60s. Her style evolves from the early 60s school girl jumper to the latest mod styles with colorblock shift dresses, patterned coats, hair scarves, mini skirts and cardigans. She embraced the best 60s fashion.
If you want some 60s Queen Gambit outfits just like Beth’s you can achieve it far easier than it will be to become a Chess master. Real vintage 60s clothes will surge in prices because of the show but there are plenty of good vintage-inspired 60s clothes at more affordable prices. Here are many of our favorite 1960s style clothes:
