Add These Pieces to Your Wardrobe to Rock the WednesdayCore Look
Thanks to Jenna Ortega's flawless portrayal of Wednesday Addams in the new Wednesday Netflix series, the gothic look is in—and we couldn't be happier.
The WednesdayCore look is all about the edge, combining somber draped pieces with unique sheer and lace textures, and of course, donning black from head to toe. That makes the style surprisingly versatile, and even subtle, if you know what you're doing. If you're looking for some great WednesdayCore pieces to add to your wardrobe, look no further than this list.
Killstar Kelesi Top: $42.99
When it comes to WednesdayCore looks, playing with texture is key, which is why velvet pieces like this Kelesi Top from Killstar are a necessity. It's made from soft, stretchy velvet with an embossed design to add some character to an all-black outfit, and it looks great paired with high-waisted bottoms and layered with other exciting accents.
Beginning Boutique Kia Black Lace Bodysuit: $59.99
We love anything that evokes the grace and flair of Wednesday's famous lacey prom dress, which is why we adore this Kira Black Lace Bodysuit from Beginning Boutique. The sheer material is playful with its floral detailing, making it easy to pair with all of your favorite bold pieces.

For a more traditional Wednesday Addams style, this Long Sleeve Button Down Shirttail Maxi Shirt fits the bill. It's casual, yet elevated, and is woven to keep you warm and comfy even in the wintertime. We also love the idea of layering with a white collared shirt to truly get Wednesday's look.

Betsey Johnson Lil Bow-Peep Nylon Mini Backpack: $59.98
Accessorization is also key to WednesdayCore looks, and while most all-black handbags will do, we think this Betsey Johnson Lil Bow-Peep Nylon Mini Backpack feels like it was made just for the occasion. Because it's black-on-black, you have to look a little harder to see the dainty bow details, which honestly feels perfect for Wednesday.
