Happy International Chess Day!

If you aren't yet one of the millions of  Netflix accounts who have binge-watched The Queen's Gambit, we recommend adding it to your queue to watch this weekend. While the show inspired us to learn how to play chess, we were also inspired by the wit and style of show's main character Beth Harmon. From her fur coats and colorful loafers to her winged eyeliner, Beth is not only a world class chess player but an icon in many respects.

In celebration of International Chess Day, we rounded up 20 Beth-approved gifts like chess sets and retro coats to martini glasses and show-inspired products to give to your favorite (check)mate.
