Wednesday Addams - Unlikely style icon

Wednesday Addams is my icon in both style and life in general. I know, you wouldn't necessarily think to look at Wednesday for inspiration when you're stuck for an outfit, but i've found that you can actually take a lot of fashion tips from her.
1) First of all, it is always okay to wear black head to toe- I am a serious advocate of the black on black look and Wednesday absolutely rocks it. If there is one thing we have to take from her, it is without a doubt this. After all she is famous for saying "I'll stop wearing black, when they make a darker colour".
2) Collars. Although they're seemingly very simple, I think they actually look really cute and just add something extra to your outfit. I've found that collared tops are especially well suited for winter, as you can layer them under a big wooly jumper to stay warm. If you want to tone it down, wear a peter pan collar instead of her big standout version. 
3) Finally, lace up boots. In all the pictures i've found of her, she seems to be sporting a simple pair of all black lace up boots. These are a staple item, especially for this time of the year. I think they look really cute with jeans, or a dress just like Wednesday!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and maybe even take a little inspiration from Wednesday Addams when you're next stuck for an outfit! And why not go all out and throw your hair in plaits to complete the whole look!
I hope you have a merry christmas,
lots of love Lily Mint xx

  16. As soon as I saw this post I knew I would love your blog. When I was in grade school we had to do a report on what we wanted as a career, I did my report on Wednesday Addams and got a firm talking to afterward. My answer would STILL be Wednesday Addams!
