What Is Addamscore? How to Achieve the Addamscore Home Aesthetic

The Addams Family is back, thanks to a new spinoff series coming to Netflix called Wednesday. The eight-episode series is directed by the famously dark Tim Burton (you probably know his name from movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice or Edward Scissorhands) and will star Jenna Ortega as Wednesday, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Pugsley. Although the show won’t be released until this fall (the official date is still TBD), we can’t help but already feel inspired by this dark and moody return.

There’s always been something charming—and even a little sexy—about the Addams Family aesthetic. Between Gomez’s perfectly tailored pinstripe suits and Morticia’s figure-hugging black gown (not to mention her enviable rose garden), this whimsical-cakey family definitely has a penchant for style. And while the super-dramatic, all-black, Victorian-inspired look might not be for everyone, there’s no denying that there’s a certain air of gothic glamor in the Addams’ home.

We love that this aesthetic is completely unique to them – they won’t be caught dead installing white subway tiles in their kitchen, and you certainly won’t find them jumping on the coastal granny or Barbiecore trend bandwagons any time soon . Their dedication to their own look is eternal and unwavering, and we have to respect them for sticking to their chosen aesthetic, even when it’s not considered “mainstream.”

With that in mind, we predict that Addamscore—an aesthetic inspired by the Addams Family—will be big this fall. Victorian corsets and pinstripe patterns graced the Fall-Winter 2022 runways this year (hello, Morticia and Gomez!). Brands like Valentino and Isabel Marant even took on goth-inspired looks with dark lace, smooth leather, Wednesday Addams-approved dresses, witchy capes and dominatrix-like boots.

Libby Page, senior market editor for Net-a-Porter, tells Who Wears What“‘Black is back’ is a key theme we’ve invested in for Autumn/Winter, taking a much more simplistic approach to dressing following the ‘dopamine dressing’ trend that has dominated recent seasons. We love monochrome styling for its elegance and charm.”

You may hear your inner Miranda Priestly musing with skepticism: “Black for fall? Trailblazer,” but this year the trend goes way beyond moody fall colors into more Halloween-esque territory. For example, Vogue Italy just released their September cover featuring Gigi Hadid rocking a Bride of Frankenstein hairstyle and a decidedly Morticia Addams-esque black dress.

Beyond fashion and runway trends, we also think the Addamscore aesthetic translates beautifully into furniture, home design, and accessories—especially in the coming months. While this look is definitely not for everyone (and its polarizing nature is part of its appeal), we think touches of dark gloss or a dash of glossy black paint are welcome additions to any home for fall. The best part? With the right application, these Addams Family-inspired additions look dark, sexy, and lasting—not like chintzy themed decor. Here are our 10 favorite Addamscore home finds.
