Of all the wonderful things that fall brings, what we find ourselves looking forward to the most is the kickoff of the new entertainment calendar. This season brought a new batch of shows and movies we love, including our newest favorite: Wednesday. At this point, we've binged the entire season, tried (and failed at) the TikTok dance, and obsessed over the show's star Jenna Ortega (and her beauty routine). As the natural progression goes, we're now ready to take our love for all things Wednesday one step further: infusing her signature style into our closets.
Wednesday Addams style has been synonymous with goth since the character's debut in 1938 and throughout countless incarnations over the next eight decades, but Jenna Ortega's Wednesday immediately feels different — she's less Hot Topic and more high fashion (she even wears an Alaïa dress to a school dance during the now-famous dance scene. Christina Ricci's Wednesday could never!).
Wednesday's wardrobe incorporates classic goth staples (chunky boots! leather! all black everything!) while weaving in luxe fabrics (lace and velvet) and feminine details (tulle, ruffles and high-neck blouses) to create an unexpectedly stylish aesthetic: Gothic Romantic. Ahead, find everything you need to strike the perfect moody-chic balance, and get the gothic romantic look of your dreams.
