Channel Your Inner Carmela Soprano With These Leopard Print Bags

In our mob wife era...

If you’ve scrolled through Instagram or TikTok for 30 seconds in the last month, you’re probably well aware that the Mob Wife aesthetic is trending. The shift from quiet luxury and minimalism that came seemingly overnight further speaks to the powers of social media and the phenomenon occurring within the trend cycle.

The loudness of Mob Wife fashion burst onto the social media scene seemingly overnight, but now, it’s impossible to ignore. There have been countless reels of influencers in massive fur coats, gold hoops, chains, and animal prints.

Mob Wife Fashion

Several jokes have also been made that reference how Mob Wife fashion is just Long Island/New Jersey/New York fashion. As someone who grew up on Long Island in an Italian-American household, I can certainly say this rings true.

Murder and other federal crimes aside, watching The Sopranos as an adult during the pandemic gave me pangs of nostalgia for my childhood. Sunday dinners at Grandma and Grandpa’s house with all my cousins, massive family holidays, trips to the Italian supermarket (was it just a front? Maybe.), and yes, the fashion.

From Carmela Soprano’s statement furs to her collection of classic gold jewelry, the fashion seen on screen was exactly what I saw growing up. Of course, there was an endless supply of leopard print, much worn by Drea de Matteo’s character, Adriana.

The 2024 version of this aesthetic is much less, dare I say, gaudy and way cooler. I’m talking long vintage furs paired with sporty baseball caps and sneakers. Don’t forget your gold jewelry, and of course, nothing screams Mob Wife more than leopard print!
