The clean girl aesthetic is out in 2024. Instead, women are embracing the “Mob Wife” look when it comes to hair, makeup, and fashion. If you’re thinking Adriana La Cerva in The Sopranos, Karen Hill in Goodfellas, and Elvira Hancock in Scarface, you’re on the right track. Learn more about this fashion trend and the products that can help you transform into your own version of a “Mob Wife.”

What is the ‘Mob Wife’ aesthetic?

The “Mob Wife” aesthetic isn’t new — it has appeared in pop culture throughout the decades. The wardrobe, hair, and makeup choices of fictional “Mob Wives” and reality TV stars like Angela Joyce “Big Ang” Raiola (RIP) have had a lasting impact on society; one that has resurfaced as a trend once again thanks to TikTok.

In October 2023, TikTok user and self-described “mob wife CEO” Sarah Arcuri posted a video about how to achieve the aesthetic. “Start with an outfit that’s comprised of entirely black garments,” says Arcuri.

Ultimately, you want to look like you’re going to a funeral. “If you can add some leather in there, even better.”

Fur jackets, gold jewelry, and clipped back hair are also part of the “Mob Wife” look. Complete the style with a pair of sunglasses and a designer handbag, preferably from a designer of Italian descent.

Perhaps the key element to achieving the “Mob Wife” aesthetic is how you carry yourself. The overall attitude you have when you don those leather boots, put on that fur jacket and gold jewelry should make you feel powerful and allow you to carry yourself like a boss woman.
