fashion You’re about to see the ‘mob wife aesthetic’ everywhere. Basmah Qazi

It feels like only yesterday (because it basically was) that TikTok was obsessed with the “clean girl” trend. 

Women would slick their hair as far back as it would go and walk out of the house with nothing more than a lick of gloss and a dot of tinted moisturiser.

They then moved onto quiet luxury, which was all about wearing clothes with no showy logos and minimal prints, oozing sophistication through tailored silhouettes and delicate accessories.

Basically, every trend FashionTok has pushed out is rooted in minimalism … until now. 

Let me introduce you to the “mob wife aesthetic” – which is all about an explosion of leopard print, chunky accessories and leather.  

It’s maximalist, messy and surprisingly easy to recreate. 

You may already be familiar with what mob wives look like, not because you know one personally, but because you grew up watching The Sopranos, Goodfellas and The Godfather.

Carmela Soprano from The Sopranos, Ginger McKenna from Casino and Elvira Hancock from Scarface are perfect style inspiration. It’s a mix between ’90s supermodel glamour and the loud patterns everyone used to wear in the 2010s.
