Known for her dark pigtails and black monochrome outfits, Wednesday Addams has been around for close to a century. Her slightly reimagined character features many of the same iconic aspects, but brings a new high-fashion touch to classic goth style. She’s allergic to color, so everything in her wardrobe is black with a few white accents to break up the monochrome color.
Playing her character is Jenna Ortega, whose personal style is not unlike her character! An emphasis on darker hues and moody eye makeup, Ortega’s style is made up of many of the same aspects of Wednesday, although she isn’t always confined to dark, gothic fashion. The 20-year-old actress has made her mark on the dark and ghoulish genres of horror and thriller films, so this role is a perfect fit for her talents and resume.
If you’d like to master her ghoulish makeup and hair, stay away from blush and go heavy-handed on the contour, especially shaping the cheekbones. A dark smokey eye and lots of mascara will accomplish her eye look, while a nude matte lipstick will tie it all together. And don’t forget the braids, of course.

One easy piece to style according to Wednesday’s aesthetic is a simple black dress. While Wednesday Addams is dripping in designer wear, you can easily achieve her look on a budget. She alternates between fitted and boxy silhouettes on the show, so this fitted dress is a perfect option, especially with a pair of tights and edgier boots.
Another option is a long sleeve mini dress, like this one for only $13, which you can layer under some of the other pieces for a perfect Wednesday look.
And if you’d rather copy one of her red carpet looks, this dress has similar lace cutouts for the perfect gothic look with a bit of added spice.
A must-have for every outfit, a pair of sheer black tights will make or break your Wednesday look. To keep everything monochrome and consistent, and as dark as she is, cover your exposed legs with black tights to complete the look.
Wednesday’s vibe is goth meets schoolgirl in all the best ways. You’ll need a black blazer, preferably in dark pinstripes, but any dark blazer will do. Throw the blazer over a black dress or pair with matching trousers to match one of her school looks on the show.
Collared Shirt and Sweater
One of the defining features of her outfits, as the only non-black color present, is the white collared shirt that peeks out from under sweaters and blazers. To copy this look, you’ll need a cropped collared shirt (to reduce bulk) and a black sweater.
And obviously, you’ll need a pair of pinstriped trousers to complete your look. One of the most iconic outfits from the show features a pair of wide leg striped trousers. And lucky for you, we found them on a budget! Pair these pants with a collared shirt or blazer for whatever your day has in store.
The Netflix version of Wednesday Addams belongs on your style inspo board. The dark hues and simple style are perfect for the winter season!
