Will Wednesday Be Bringing Goth To The Popular Center Of Fashion?
We sense a dark presence hovering over your wardrobes this current and upcoming season.
The popular iconic Netflix hit 'Wednesday,' which is giving Stranger Thing's fourth season a run for its money, centers around the iconic eldest Addams family sibling in a modern-day retelling of her story as a teenager.
Wednesday, who is portrayed by 20-year-old actress Jenna Ortega, would be described as a very emo type of character. She is also intelligent, resourceful, fearlessly determined, and stands proudly in her own individuality, with no apology or care for external judgment. If anything, she receives any negative remarks towards her morbid personality as a compliment, that she accepts with both a graceful and savage demeanor.
Told in the setting of a boarding school for supernatural outcasts who all dress in blue prep-school uniforms, Wednesday not only rejects the social norms of the majority youth, but also her school's color palette, as she's the type of girl who's more loyal to a goth-like wardrobe of pitch black.
Let's analyze her funeral-like style even further. While Jenna Ortega does inhabit the familiarity of Wednesday with her signature double braids, her clothing is certainly injected with a contemporary point of view which allows her to reside in tandem with Gen Z fashion.
Her wardrobe, which was curated personally by Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood consists of Miu Miu, Courrèges, Jacquemus, Prada, and Alaia. If you watch this haunting mystery, you'll notice Wednesday dressed in an exaggerated lace collar white shirt, black-white checkered and striped sweaters, a cropped trench coat style jacket, sporty bomber and leather jackets, stomping footwear, and Gothic romance told in an Alaia prom dress.
The modern-day Wednesday's sense of style, along with the undeniable popularity of the Netflix show, has become contagious to many fans, and we're starting to notice several of them on Tik Tok and Instagram channel the darkness of the character's style.
So, it begs the question. Will goth be overtaking the streets, retail stores, and runways of fashion this season and moving forward? We're already starting to see significant signs of this spreading influence, but just how far will it surpass? We'll find out soon enough!
