What are you listening to, Jenna Ortega? The Wednesday star is the latest celebrity to use massive over-ear headphones as an accessory, pairing her oversized audio equipment with a very Wednesday Addams-esque ensemble.
Jenna was snapped at a pre-Golden Globes event alongside her Wednesday costar Emma Myers wearing a cropped white oxford shirt and black tie paired with a gray pleated skirt from Thom Browne, plus a pair of matching gray socks and loafers. The vibe was very private school preppy with an edge, especially with the addition of a chipped black manicure, circular sunglasses, and the bold, chunky black headphones.
Wednesday elements aside, Jenna is sporting one of TikTok's biggest fashion faves of the past year. After the popularity of AirPods and the return of classic wired headphones, the trend tables turned as they are wont to do in favor of a larger, more statement-making headphone style. It's the perfect example of the trend cycle and how sometimes a complete 180 is just the thing you need to breathe fresh air into your look.
"Fashion always fluctuates. So if we see micro-sized cell phones, the next versions will be oversized," fashion historian Rachel Weingarten told Teen Vogue in July 2022. “If small earbuds were a trend and they were selling well, fashion-forward companies need to turn the trend on its ear (as it were) and find the exact opposite trend.”
