The Clean Girl is dead, long live the Mob Wife! If 2023 was all about the tidy young lady (cardigan/skirt/moccasins), the first major fashion trend of 2024 goes against the 'quiet luxury' aesthetic that fashion experts adored last year. Coinciding perfectly with the 25th anniversary of the Sopranos series, the fashion emergence of the Mob Wife, gone viral on TikTok, celebrates the idea of a 'mafia wife' look with lavish fur coats (faux, please), animal print, oversized sunglasses, voluminous blowouts, and flashy jewelry.
Everyone is getting into the spirit!
If the Mob Wife trend mirrors the looks of gangster wives in Goodfellas or Casino, it-girls have quickly embraced the phenomenon. Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa, and other influencers from around the world are now getting into the gangster wife game. These seasoned fashionistas prove that this trend, which may seem vulgar or give the impression of dressing up for Halloween, works perfectly when you grab the right pieces.
Inspiration is everywhere!
At Schiaparelli, Alaïa, Max Mara, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and of course Versace, the fashion shows have also embraced this trend, which therefore doesn't come out of nowhere. Synthetic fur coats (of course), lace corsets, black heeled boots, leopard print tops, or even tight red dresses, it's ultimately quite easy to resemble a bomba latina straight out of The Sopranos. And let's not forget the essential accessory: the big gold jewelry that will make all the difference and prove that the 'trafficker' who shares your life is actually doing his job well!
