Steal Her Style: Queen of Coats

No one does coats like Ms. Beth Harmon. Every outerwear moment has been ICONIC but we have our eyes set on the plaid and checked pieces. The coats she rocks are all tailored and structured giving a refined and collected look. A repeating design element in the coats she wears are their interesting and prominent collars along with visible, functional pockets and large buttons. She accessorizes her outerwear looks with gloves and a beret. You’ll find that most of her looks are modest and incorporate a high neckline, but she brings a fashionable element every time through color, pattern, and texture.

White/Patterned Coat


Beth’s coats are light and bright in color in pattern. The key to emulating the look of her outerwear is to search for pieces with straight silhouettes and fitted arms (avoid an oversized, boxy fit as this is more contemporary and moves towards the fashion of later decades). Mandarin collars and large lapels are super chic. Visible flap pockets also add to the 60’s infuence. Our pick features contrast buttons and a colorway very similar to the coats Beth wears.

leather gloves

Gloves


These accessories are stylish AND practical. If you live in colder climates, gloves are most likely already a part of your winter wardrobe but pairing it with a mod 60’s number will have you looking like you stepped off a magazine shoot. Beth matches her gloves with the main color of her outfits. Opt for a sleek leather pair for a more formal look and a knit pair for a cute and casual vibe.

Beret


You can never go wrong with a touch of Parisian chic. Beth tops off her all-white ensemble with a white beret that makes for an amazing contrast against her fiery orange hair. A beret is a simple piece that can honestly be worn with any winter outfit and it adds to the outfit every time! It’s a key piece to have for any aspiring fashionista. If you want to take it up a notch, rock a white monochromatic look the way Beth does.


Steal Her Style: Cool and Casual

Beth Harmon’s A-line dresses and refined 60’s style may be the fashion standouts of the show but her take on cozy chic is definitely worth the mention. We are loving her fluffy vintage cardigans paired with knits and patterned blouses. To rock the looks like she does, keep the bottoms simple and plain — opt for cotton trousers in a dark, neutral color. Styling it this way is super easy and versatile as the pants can be paired with a variety of casual tops and cardigans.

Relaxed Patterned Blouse


Beth rocks a relaxed fit button-down shirt featuring vibrant patterns (think geo print, baroque, abstract, and even floral). Throw on a cardigan over the blouse on chillier days. On warmer days, wear it alone and accessorize with a head scarf and pair with a mini skirt. Another style tip is to opt for a blouse with a busier pattern and pair with a cardigan in a neutral shade for a cool contrast.

knit top sweater

Knit Top/Sweater


Beth wears a knit top or sweater as a transitional base piece for many of her outfits. For her cool and casual looks, these tops are paired with vintage cardigans and tucked into her bottoms to add a sharp element to her otherwise cozy looks. Keeping to her modest style, opt for a top like this one with a mock neckline or boat neckline.

vintage cardigan

Vintage Cardigan


The star of her casual chic looks are her cardigans in styles that are still relevant to this day! Cardigans are truly outerwear classics and can be worn during all seasons. Beth’s cardigans feature an open front style and spread collars. This cable knit cardigan perfectly captures the vintage-inspired 60’s look of the one Beth wears.


Steal Her Style: Classic 60’s

Beth’s style embodies the classic, feminine fashion of the 60’s through her high-waisted A-line skirts and collared blouses. The key styling to her looks is creating a feminine silhouette through her high-waisted skirts that cinch her in at the waist and the fitted tops that hug her figure. A repeating design element in her tops are the adorable bows and peter pan collars which are key details you’ll want to look out for when stealing her style.

60’s Inspired Blouse


We’ve curated a list of tops that are modest, stylish, and 60’s inspired! You’ll want to look for anything that has a higher neckline, spread collar, and buttons. Peter pan/pilgrim collars have been a major trend this F/W and I highly suggest purchasing a basic white peter pan or pilgrim button-down shirt to layer under dresses and sweaters. Having this basic piece will open doors to many more outfit opportunities. Another key piece is a simple knitted polo tee that’s also extremely versatile and looks amazing tucked into a pleated skirt. This Miu Miu blouse features a few of the key trends we see in Beth’s wardrobe: high neckline, peter pan collar, bow trim, and fitted silhouette.

A-Line Skirt


Beth loves her A-line skirts pleated and in midi cuts but she also rocks them in adorable mini silhouettes. Our picks include skirts in crisp fabrics, earthy tones, and checks and plaid. This A-line skirt is one of our favorites as it features a midi length and a classic checked pattern that’s reminiscent of the 60’s.


Steal Her Style: A Young Retro Icon

And for the grand finale…some of Beth’s best looks are none other than her retro, quirky, and elegant dresses! The key for this style steal is the fit of her dresses. They are perfectly tailored to fit her body and flatter her figure while still being modest and classic. A princess seam is going to be your best friend, along with a high neckline (as mentioned before).

Fit and Flare Dress


To rock a dress like Beth, you’ll want to go for a fit and flare silhouette with short sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. You can also have fun layering a tweed piece by wearing a collared shirt underneath which will provide some modesty and embody the style of her decade. A dress with a princess seam will offer a structure and tailored fit like Beth’s. Additionally, opt for a dress fabricated in a crisp or sturdy material like tweed or poplin. We love this polished number because it incorporates the fit and flare skirt, knitted bodice, pearl buttons, and a contrast pointed collar.
