Style Inspiration: Wednesday Addams

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

She may be just a fictional character, but Wednesday Addams, from the great show the Addams Family, has influenced a lot of people over the years. She's a deadpan prepubescent girl who is the perfect example of what a lot of us having gone through when we were that age. She's charming in a macabre way, and I grew up loving watching Christina Ricci play her. She emulated the character so greatly, and her doll-like features and pale skin made her perfect for the portrayal.

So what comes out of this popular portrayal? well, her style is the most recognizable. She had some great all black outfits that I often wanted to copy, and it gave a sense of American gothic that anyone could bring into their wardrobe. There is also an attitude to copying this style, and you of course have to have long hair. Think old-fashioned dresses with high necklines and a dark print. Pointed white collars and cuffs, make sure to wear black tights and black shoes or boots.

You can also really play into this look during October, which is why I am blogging about this. Her look really reminds of Autumn and Halloween, so have fun with trying this look out and let me know how you would incorporate this into your outfit!
