It’s a new year, and the first fashion trend to explode on TikTok is a stark contrast to the quiet luxury styles that took over 2023. This time, trendsetters are going bolder, messier, and more unapologetic than ever with the "mob wife aesthetic"—and it’s exactly the fun burst of energy fashion girlies have been missing. So what exactly is the mob wife trend? Think: animal prints, statement jewelry, black leather, and (arguably the most important piece of clothing this season) a fabulous faux fur coat.

It-girls Hailey Bieber and Dua Lipa have already given the trend their stamp of approval, and the maximalist style is one I’m personally excited to experiment with. With the recent 25th anniversary of The Sopranos, the aesthetic resurgence couldn't have come at a better time IMO. As we learned from Carmela Soprano herself, clothes don’t tell the whole story. It takes a messy, doesn’t-give-a-f**k attitude approach to styling your hair and an ostentatious makeup glam inclusive of a smoky eye and red lipstick. The mob wife is flashy. She’s wealthy, and she wants you to know exactly who you’re messing with when you’re looking at her. Got it? Good.

Below, the 16 items you need to nail the mob- wife aesthetic. And remember, the bigger, the better.

Petra Leopard Print Faux Fur Coat

She’s a legend and she deserves to be shown off. This faux fur coat screams, “Yes, this is my casual look,” and can be used anywhere from the grocery store to your next dinner date.

Gyra Boots

Extreme Mascara

We’re going bold, baby! That means in-your-face long, almost obnoxious amounts of mascara. The minimal clean-girl aesthetic has no place here!
