Another day, another TikTok trend taking over social media. This time, it’s “Mob Wife Style.” Think big, think bold, and definitely think luxury. Oversized fur coats, silver and gold metallics, big sunnies, and an overdose of animal print are heading toward your social media feeds right now.
While rooted in the glamorous portrayals of mob wives on film, like Sharon Stone in Casino, Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, or Lymari Nadal in American Gangster, the mob wife look is really more than just a trend. It captures the imagination, offering a glimpse into a world of extravagance, power and giving zero Fs. Hot on the (spiked) heels of the new Netflix series Griselda, we shouldn’t be surprised at the resurgence of this style.
Mob Wife Style Handbags
A real mob wife outfit isn’t complete without a handbag that screams confidence. And money. When it comes to size, go big or go home. Mob wives don’t do minis. They opt for large, structured bags. We’ll leave to your imagination what’s inside.
Here are a few bag suggestions to complete your trendy look.
Heading the style game is the Hermès Birkin – a status symbol in itself. It’s a declaration, saying, “Yeah, we made it and we mean business.” But not just any Birkin will do. The shiny crocodile Birkin 30 in black is the true boss babe bag. Hard to get and oh-so-expensive, it’s the one the other wives will admire.
Chanel Jumbo Flap
But the exclusive collection doesn’t stop there. Enter the Chanel Classic Flap bag – a would-be staple in her closet. It’s big and bold and overtly recognizable. Fitting in the mafia first lady closet would be a Jumbo Classic Flap in Black or perhaps a Jumbo Classic in Red Patent Leather.
But the one to take the look over the top is the mink flap PurseBop owns. You’ve got your fur and the bag… just grab the sunglasses.
Gucci Horsebit in Medium Canvas
An edgier and less obvious choice could be the Gucci Horsebit in Medium Canvas. Bold branding, logo large, there’s nothing subtle about this one. Picture a mob wife with this bag slung over her shoulder, getting down to business.
The mob wife look requires a killer handbag that really slays. Which bag would you choose?
