Wednesday Addams is one of those characters that has a very distinct style that has stood the test of time. Her signature braids, dark lip and mostly black ensemble are pretty much TikTok’s favorite dark academia aesthetic from 2020. However, it’s clearly a style that isn’t going away any time soon.

The slightly goth aesthetic romanticizes a love of art and reading books. As a clothing style, it often features schoolgirl plaids in mostly dark colors.

Wednesday Addams is notoriously allergic to color, so naturally, she evokes this dark academia aesthetic with her Nevermore uniform. However, she never dresses overly sultry like her mother. Think of her style as Billie Eilish meets Phoebe Bridgers with a blazer and school uniform twist.

If you want to try out Wednesday Addams’ signature moody style, take a look below at seven pieces you can get at Nordstrom to help you get started.

This zip-up blazer dress is more party than business. Wear it with knee-high socks and boots or loafers.

2. Sam Edelman Laurs Platform Lug-Sole Loafer, $104.90–$150 (Orig. $150)

These loafers are edged up thanks to their chunky platform. They’re essentially a dark academia-style must-have.

If you loved Wednesday’s thrifted prom dress (which was actually an expensive Alaïa gown), this top channels that same chiffon, ruffle energy.

4. Roxy Rose Mood Long-Sleeve Sweater Dress, $49 (Orig. $70)

This black and white sweater dress can old be described as back-of-library chic — although its stripes make it feel slightly sporty, too.

5. Commando Up All Night Thigh-High Socks, $36

Knee socks are pretty much essential in Wednesday Addams’ closet. You can take it a step further and go with a thigh-high style like this one to pair with mini dresses and skirts.

6. Dr. Martens Jadon Boot, $140-$200 (Orig. $190–$200)

Dr. Martens makes the gold standard for combat-style boots. These ones have a lace-up design, but you don’t actually have to untie them to put them on — there’s a zipper on the inside ankle.

7. Good American Better Than Leather Faux-Leather Good Icon Pants, $105–$180 (Orig. $170–$180)

These faux-leather pants come in a range of sizes and look good on everyone. Get them in black to wear with sheer tops, fitted turtlenecks and chunky sweaters.
