What do mafia wives wear?
Mob wives like flashy, like their counterparts mafia men but more so. Wear big earrings and lots of gold jewelry, plus revealing bosomy dresses. Dresses only. Animal print like tiger stripe or cheetah is perfect, and always the fur. Fur is mandatory in the mafia wife wardrobe. Top it off with some great big sunglasses. Hats are a great aesthetic too. If you decide to wear a hat, only wide brimmed ones that are great at covering your face from security cameras. Remember that mafia dress style is form fitting and revealing dresses showing both legs and or bosom, with layers of texture above.
Here is the Mafia Wife Aesthetic Checklist:
- Form-fitting low cut dress (mandatory) that can be full length or also very revealing
- Pants – the only exception to the tight dress are leather pants
- A cover like a shawl or a fur coat
- Big sunglasses
- Wide brimmed hat
- Lots of gold jewelry
- Makeup – Lots of Mascara and Red lipstick
How to Coordinate with Your Other Mafia Wives
Mafia wives wear black, but if everyone in your group wears black it looks like a funeral. Make sure that black is the base and layer flamboyance on top of it. Go shopping together with the other mafia wives so that the outfit stays with the theme but compete with each other in gaudy flashiness.
Mafia Dress Style Sources- Where To Find It
The form fitting dress might have to come from your own wardrobe, but if you don’t have one, don’t spend a lot on a new one. Everything you need for the mafia aesthetic can be found at a vintage store like Ragsock, or a secondhand store like Goodwill or Savers. Remember to get cheap gaudy bracelets and earrings. Not so much in the necklace category.Keep the bling on the peripheries. Try to find a nice oversized gold belt too.
Mafia Wife Rules
Remember that when dressing like a mafia wife, you also have to act like a mafia wife. Your friends are other mafia wives, but most of them are from arranged marriages, so they are not your real friends. You are always in competition with the other mafia wives and you play out that competition in what you wear. Mafia wives are very cliquey. The only people mafia wives can hang out with, are other mafia wives.
