Created by Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, with direction from Tim Burton, Wednesday is the latest adaptation of the iconic Addams Family characters. The show follows Wednesday (Jenna Ortega), who is sent to a boarding school, Nevermore, after getting into trouble at public school. While there, she gets caught up in a web of trouble involving classmates, the townspeople, and a monstrous Hyde. The show has exploded in popularity since its debut, breaking Netflix viewing records and drawing praise for its casting. In addition to its strong performances and mystery, the show also has many memorable fashion moments from the characters that make use of the genre, setting, and Burton’s signature style. Here are the best ones, ranked.
9/9 The Nevermore Uniforms
The Nevermore school uniforms consist of blazers with black and bluish-purple stripes, with the school crest. They’re simple, but sophisticated, and a little more colorful than a typical school uniform. They really set the tone for Nevermore and show what this experience will be like. Wednesday, who’s “allergic to color,” also gets to wear her blazer in black and gray instead, which makes her stand out.
8/9 Weems’ Sleek Outfits
As head of Nevermore, Principal Weems (Gwendoline Christie) is a powerful woman who is often at odds with Wednesday, and her wardrobe reflects that. Simple and sharp, she often wears long dresses and coats in a neutral color palette. Speaking with Variety, costume designer Colleen Atwood said she based Weems’ outfits on Tippi Hedren in The Birds. With no flashy colors or designs, the formal clothes fit her, and her imposing nature, perfectly.
7/9 Wednesday’s Black Dress
The black dress Wednesday wears at the show’s start is very similar to her classic black dress with a white collar, but with a few modifications. The collar is much more exaggerated, for example, and the dress is covered in a small floral pattern. Fans of 1991’s The Addams Family might notice it’s similar to Wednesday’s floral dress in that movie, and it works to demonstrate the character’s iconic past with some new touches. This pattern is later continued in the black coat Wednesday wears when touring Nevermore for the first time.
6/9 Thornhill’s Wardrobe
One of the professors at Nevermore is Thornhill (Christina Ricci), who teaches botanical science and tries to bond with Wednesday as her dorm mom. Her outfits are scholarly but still cool, like her blue jumpsuit and red boots, or her patterned button-down with a cardigan. She also wears some impressive coats: a black one with red floral detailing that reflects her teaching subject, and a multicolored patchwork one that resembles a quilt. Even as a supporting character, the outfits give her flair and help her stand out.
5/9 Wednesday’s Black and White Patterns
Black and white clothing is a common feature of Tim Burton projects, and Wednesday is no exception. Throughout the season, Wednesday wears various outfits containing black and white patterns, like a striped cardigan and checkerboard-print sweater. Loose and modern, they reflect current styles in their structure, while the black and white makes them simple and still classic. They all fit into Burton’s aesthetic, while making a perfect fit for Wednesday’s character.
4/9 The Addams Family’s Ensemble
To see the whole Addams Family in this new iteration is great, and their outfits match the occasion. They stay close to the classic black, white, and stripes that the characters are known for, brought to life for the new adaptation. It’s a perfect blend of the past, with some changes for the present. From Gomez’s (Luis Guzmán) striped suit, to Morticia’s (Catherine Zeta-Jones) long black velvet gown, to Pugsley’s (Isaac Ordonez) stripes, it’s an impressive group look that shows how classic and timeless their outfits are, and establishes this new version of the family.
3/9 Enid’s Bright Pink Wardrobe
Enid (Emma Myers), a werewolf, is Wednesday’s cheerful roommate. From her first scene, it’s clear how different the two are: Enid’s room is bright and colorful, and her mostly-pink wardrobe matches. Her colors and patterns, like a fluffy pink coat, are happy and sweet, and reflect her kind, caring nature. They also show how much she contrasts with Wednesday, which makes their friendship even more rewarding.
2/9 Bianca’s Rave’N Dress
The Rave’N is the Nevermore school dance that the students eagerly attend. Out of uniform, we get to see many great dresses, and one of the most impressive belongs to Bianca (Joy Sunday). It’s made of teal blue scales and is almost mermaid-like, which may reflect Bianca’s powers as a siren. Amid the great outfits at the dance, hers is a definite standout.
1/9 Wednesday’s Rave’N Dress
When Wednesday finally decides to attend the Rave’N, Thing surprises her with the dress she admired in town. Made even more memorable because of Wednesday’s dance, the dress is also gorgeous on its own, with its deep black color and sheer designs. It’s also significant to Wednesday: it shows her beginning to adapt to Nevermore’s traditions, while still keeping her own unique spirit. Netflix shared that Atwood’s goal with the dress was to show Wednesday “trying to conform, but not quite fitting in.” While she begins to enjoy her school experience, she still does it her way, and stands out.
