The first Wednesday Addams outfit we see in the intro of the show is quite similar to this one. It features a long-sleeved black and white florals polka-dot dress over a structured white top. When it’s colder, you can opt for that version of Wednesday’s outfit. For warmer weather, go with this short-sleeved dress instead. Complete the outfit with a pair of black or white short boots, or Mary Janes for a more girly look.
