Fashion Tips We Can All Use From The Addams Family

Like many, Halloween for us kids growing up was always a time to dress up. We’d bounce off the walls on a sugar high and watch scary films. I was never allowed to watch Silence of the Lambs but a VHS and mute button soon saw to that little dilemma. The Addams Family and other weird and wonderful films however were always on schedule. Fun fact, Anthony Hopkins actually turned down the role of Fester in The Addams Family in lieu of his role as Hannibal Lecter. Anyway. Upon recently watching the film it’s so obvious where designers get their inspiration these days. Ok I’m kidding but it’s worth having a delve into their style and what we can do about it, right?

Here’s what we can learn from my favourite three characters; Wednesday, Gomez and Morticia…

 

Wednesday

Despite being just 10 years old during filming, Wednesday Addams (aka Christina Ricci), had quite the unique style.

Button downs, exaggerated collars and chic over the knee socks – she definitely had it going on.

Oh and don’t get me started on those urban braids, hello!

Gomez

Charming, attentive and affectionate. What’s not to love about Gomez?

Throw in his velvet blazers, those silky waistcoats and Renaissance shirts and you got yourself a brand new boyfriend wardrobe.

Morticia

Despite Cher being interested in the role, we could never image anyone playing Morticia better.

The vamp red nails and matching blood red lips, she was my beauty idol from the get-go.

Her floor length dresses were always a little too sexy and generally, she scared the hell out of me.

A woman’s wardrobe I’d definitely like to have a sift through though.
