There’s a new trend taking over. Clean girls, step aside; it’s time for the mob wives to shine. The mob wife aesthetic started trending on TikTok, reportedly fuelled by the 25th anniversary of The Sopranos. There are countless videos on the app of people showcasing their version of “how to dress like a mob wife.” Which usually includes a form-fitting all-black outfit base, bold makeup, a French mani, an expensive bag, Y2K sunglasses, and the most important detail, a fur coat. Basically, if Carmela Soprano or Adriana La Cerva would wear it, you’ve nailed it.
Although some may be frustrated with the volume of labeled trends in the world of TikTok (think Tomato Girls, Coastal Grandmother, Quiet Luxury, and so on), why not have some fun with it? Fashion is all about expression, is it not? Use the ever-revolving trend cycle as light inspiration to try out different styles and discover what resonates with you.

Mob wife fundamentals:
It’s not so much about what a mob wife is wearing; it’s about how she wears it. The unapologetic “I don’t care” attitude that simply exudes confidence. When she walks into a room, she demands attention. There’s a richness to her vibe; there’s secrecy, there’s edge, there’s… confidence.
The mob wife aesthetic is highly inspired by ‘80s glamour. Think fur coats, leather, leopard print, long nails, and gold jewellery. Literally the opposite of quiet luxury – loud luxury.
A mob wife would never limit her look to just clothing. Makeup, hair, and nails are a massive part of the equation. She loves a bold, messy makeup look, maybe with a red lip. Her hair is voluminous or otherwise in an intentional, perfectly messy bun. Her nails are always manicured and long, usually with a French tip or maybe even red polish.
