If you look at TikTok or Instagram, then you’ll see an endless supply of posts devoted to the newest fashion trend – the Mob Wife Aesthetic. This aesthetic is the complete inverse of last year’s quiet luxury trend and packs a punch. Complete with over-the-top pieces and statement prints, this style trend is such a twist from the understated looks we saw throughout 2023. While this trend is still hot, it doesn’t mean it will last the entire year.
Like many of the recent quick trends, it’ll likely die down near the summer season and give way to an entirely new fashion trend. For that reason, I don’t recommend splurging too much on items that you don’t feel you would wear in a year from now. So today, I have a few items that will complete your mob wife aesthetic trend without breaking the budget.
Mob Wife Aesthetic Pieces under $100
Animal Print Bodysuit
In my last post, I talked all about animal print and how much it’s going to establish itself as the must-have trend of 2024. Ironically, this trend also coincides with the Mob Wife Aesthetic, and it’s the perfect cross between the two. Anything can be the perfect animal print piece but a bodysuit is such a gorgeous piece that can help bring your closet together. You can layer your bodysuit with more subtle pieces or go head-to-toe with an awesome faux fur coat (more on that later). This Zebra Print Bodysuit comes from my boutique, Amieclothing.com, and retails for only 22.99.
90’s Inspired Slip Dress
You can’t deny that the Mob Wife Aesthetic has plenty of resemblance to the ’90s and Y2K so it’s a no-brainer that many of the trends will match. One of those pieces that can easily translate into the perfect ‘Mob-Wife’ trend. Paired with a long coat for those chilly days, a mini slip dress is sensual, mysterious, and fun. I love this Spaghetti Strap Mini Lace Dress because it can function for any date night, formal event, or layering you want to do with it. At only 47.99, it’s the perfect piece to round out your wardrobe.
We couldn’t talk about the Mob Wife Aesthetic without mentioning the faux fur coat. In all of its renditions, the fur coat is the cherry on top for this trend and is the perfect mix of statement, fashion, and costume. If you want to embody this trend, you’ll need a faux fur coat to bring you warmth in the winter or night. Over a mini dress, this piece will look stunning. You can opt for a full-length coat or cropped version, it simply depends on your preference. Here are some options from Amazon that are perfectly within budget but still have the volume and style you need.

Anything Lace or Mesh
One of the most underrated characteristics of the Mob Wife Aesthetic is the fact that it involves a lot of texture. That’s why mesh and sheer an important concepts to add to your wardrobe if you want this darker and more mature look to your outfit. It doesn’t need to be necessarily see-through, but a fun mesh top with a frilly and fun print can be the perfect piece that gives this retro vibe.
This option from Free People is only $78 and is the perfect piece to serve year-round as it’s lightweight to wear on its own or layered underneath a coat or blazer. There’s another option courtesy of Topshop that has lace detailing that’s slightly more subtle and conservative but still has plenty of the mob wife style to it.
