Warning: This article is only addressing the aesthetic that surrounds the Italian Mafia; this article is, in no way, glorifying the actions of the Italian Mafia, past or present. It is merely here for documentation purposes only.

The Italian Mafia aesthetic is based off of the Italian organized crime families that became prevalent in the 19th century. Also called the Sicilian Mafia, or just the Mafia, Italian Mafia was known for it's high class fashion and lifestyle, often indulging in expensive homes and imported goods. They are also known for heavy drug and alcohol use. The Mafia was most highly known for it's use of violence and organized crime to obtain money and notoriety. Crime cases that involved Mafia members were of high popularity at the time of occurrence, making the members and bosses notable figures. Other Mafia families have popped up in places across the world, including the USA.

Current day adoption of the Italian Mafia aesthetic focuses on the expensive look and risk of danger. This topic is written into many fictional novels and fanfictions where authors and readers may use it as an escape into a more exciting life. However, this aesthetic is not to be used outside of fiction in regards to drug use and violence. Similar fashion inspiration can be taken from the Boujee aesthetic. For posterity reasons, the elements of the aesthetic will be listed below.
