If you take a good look at Wednesday Addams' outfits, our favorite writer-in-training and Nevermore Academy vigilante might have a future in fashion...if she so chooses.
In Wednesday, Netflix's new rendition of the beloved kooky series, Jenna Ortega takes on the titular role and gives our heroine a Gen Z flair that we can all love and appreciate. Until now, we'd thought Wednesday's grim ensembles were reserved for cosplay, but her delightfully dreary looks are wearable beyond Halloween.
We found a few capsule wardrobe staples that scream "Wednesday," but we'll admit, you're not going to get much in the way of dopamine dressing here. But hey, all closets need their neutrals and blacks, right? (Plus, Wednesday's allergic to color.)
"Someone like Wednesday seems very one tone. But there are a lot of different routes that you could take with someone like her," Ortega revealed to Netflix about the role.
As it turns out, the same can be said about Wednesday's closet—and we'll prove it to you.
How to recreate the best Wednesday Addams outfits IRL
Throughout the new series, Ortega gives Wednesday an updated, fun—albeit dreary—look. From her everyday wear to her school uniform, Wednesday's outfits are very much on point. Anna Wintour, if you're looking for an intern, you might be in luck.
1. Wednesday's Rave'N Dress
In the now iconic dance scene, Wednesday dons a fluffy, spooky and of course, black dress while the rest of the student body is wearing all-white at the Rave'N. Thing does the honors of snatching the eye-catching piece from a local store in Jericho. What would a girl do without him?
2. Wednesday's Nevermore Academy Uniform
Wednesday has no problem donning a professional look, but of course, it needs a little bit of black to be complete. While most Nevermore students sport a purple blazer, she unsurprisingly opts for something darker.
3. Wednesday's Off-Duty Looks
Wednesday's cute sweaters and knits are every goth girl's dream.
4. Wednesday's Accessories
Every girl needs a good pair of shoes and fun accessories. Wednesday's got both on lock.
Wednesday is now streaming on Netflix.
