Everyone wants to be a mob wife these days.

Well, maybe not an *actual* mob wife, but they damn well want to look the part!

The mob wife aesthetic is the latest fashion trend to take over TikTok and now Hollywood. The look is all about leopard print, oversized fur coats, and, of course, the attitude to match. And if you really want to commit? Throw in some red lipstick and big hair.

Dua Lipa has been into the trend since day 1 but other celebs who have tried it out include Kim Kardashian, Halsey, Hailey Bieber, Rita Ora, Kylie Jenner, and Jennifer Lopez (although, perhaps inadvertently).

Fashion inspiration includes Lorraine Bracco in Goodfellas, Talia Shire in The Godfather II, and pretty much the entire female cast of The Sopranos (although Drea de Matteo as Adriana is definitely the favorite).

If you’re looking to get in on the trend, check out our favorite pieces below to help you achieve the mob wife aesthetic.

Faux Fur Coats

There’s no better way to show off your obscene (and highly illegal) wealth than by rocking an oversized fur coat (although we much prefer to go the faux fur route). It’s the perfect piece for a night out on the town, date night, or any other time you damn well please.

Leopard Print

Leopard print is pretty much a must-have for anyone looking to get in on the mob wife trend. Channel your inner Adriana La Cerva by opting for a full-on leopard print catsuit or just add a touch of leopard to your outfit with a cute bag.


Opt for an exaggerated pair of sunglasses to make a statement and embrace the bad bitch you are.


Every look could use a little bling bling, right? Or better yet, make it a lot!
