The mob wife trend is akin to the “frazzled English woman” trend. It thrives on imperfections. It’s a little rough around its edges but it has a certain authenticity and rawness that makes it appear authentic. It was only a question of time until we all embraced the grandeur that is exemplified by the nostalgia crime drama set in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Adriana’s hip-hugging shapes, bold prints, and dramatic hair and make-up are all part of her feminine appeal.

She is a devotee of form-fitting clothing and avoids oversized looks. Instead, she opts for tight snakeskin pants with a patent leather dress, or statement workout sets. She’s a fan of animal prints and embraces a sensual look with voluminous waves, a signature smoky-eye, and an array amped-up outfits. In this universe of style, leopard is considered a neutral. (This is our cue to put the beige on hold). Adriana’s audacious line includes cheetah-striped co-ords and vintage Roberto Cavalli slip dresses featuring the full-on face and body of a tiger.

Gold jewelry is a must-have for the iconic character. Gold hoops, gold bangles and iced out rings are all symbols of not-so quiet luxury. It’s time to make the most of your opportunity. Make your showy, delicious stacks a real thing. Think again if you thought this meant reducing your handbags. Instead, add a splash of logomania to your look by adding a statement bag from your favorite Italian fashion house. The final step? Vintage fur, and of course a red-hot mani.

What’s the plan? Doesn’t matter. According to TikToker, @maleyanichole, weekend errands can be a good excuse to dress as if you were going to your ex-partner’s funeral. Adriana’s iconic style was evident whether she was at the gym or playing tennis. We should dress as if we are being watched by the FBI. You can borrow her coiffed-updos, and saucy nails. This is the opposite of understated minimalism and proves that more can be more.
