Gothic Pieces for Everybody and Every Lifestyle

It’s time to get creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky.

It’s the return of the gothic style icon, Wednesday Addams. We can’t be the only people who are absolutely obsessing over the new series, or the looks they’re serving. 

While Wednesday may be allergic to color, she’s no stranger to fashionable cuts and patterns. Oversized silhouettes are contrasted with structural pieces, and blacks and greys juxtapose shocking whites. Not forgetting the classic Wednesday Addams dress, or that school dance dress.

We already knew that the new series would serve us some twists on the classic Wednesday Addams outfits, but who knew the Halloween aesthetic would meet modern tastes so perfectly?

Wednesday Addams has been a style icon for decades, so let’s get into it, AKA the essential pieces and statement separates you’ll need to be inspired by her in your everyday looks.

 

Wednesday Addams Inspired Dresses

 

Wednesday has allowed us to see the titular character in a much more detailed way, with costumes that match her age but also her energy. Her dresses make up much of her closet, in fact we only saw her in dresses for a very long time.

In the new series, we see her in knee-length hoodies and slouchy clothes, but also in the more structured collar dress, and that dance dress we’re all obsessing over. No matter whether she’s throwing piranhas into a swimming pool or playing her cello in the moonlight, she never compromises on her iconic and hella individual style.

 

Collared Dresses

 

When you think of Wednesday Addams, two things probably spring to mind: her long braids and her collared dress. Dresses with a collar provide a little more formality and can be worn anywhere from shopping days and happy hours, to creeping through the woods hunting for monsters—y’know, whatever suits…

Leg and Body Harnesses

 

Add some instant Wednesday energy to your pre-existing outfits with a body harness. 

Body harnesses add that edge and once you know how to style them, you’ll never leave home without one. Use them to cinch your waist when wearing a floaty blouse or dress, or wear over a top or dress to add structure and alternative details.

As for leg harnesses, style under a mini dress or over shorts to add gothic vibes to your outfit, whether you’re in a festival field or going for brunch.

Opt for some chunky platforms, AKA the comfy yet fashion-forward footwear with an alternative twist, perfect for styling with, let’s face it, anything. Jeans, skirts, and dresses look great with chunky platform shoes, as the added height and bold array of hues and patterns instantly elevate any look.
