As well as the name of the Netflix show, the Queen’s Gambit is in fact an a move in chess, where the player using the white set opens the game by moving their Queen’s pawn into the centre of the board, consequently sacrificing it’s adjacent pawn in their next move.

#1 Collared cardigans

A staple item in Beth Harmon’s wardrobe is a buttoned up collared cardigan. Seen on both the runways and high street season after season, collared cardigans inject some 60’s femininity into your style. Perfect for layering over A-line dresses or pant suits you’ll reap both style and comfort benefits. Beth is seen sporting a selection of fitted and oversized cardigans throughout the series and we can’t get enough.
