7 On-Trend Dresses To Channel Classic Hollywood Chic On a Budget

Fashion Trends with Hollywood Appeal

There are trends in just about every area of life, from fashion, to music, to interior design, to cosmetics. From Instagram influencers to famous housewives, we are inundated with inspiration. But I think we can all agree that at times, it gets overwhelming. And just because fashion editors are talking about a trend, doesn’t mean the average person is wearing it. Because let’s be honest, we don’t all have budgets to match the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

I love Hollywood.

But have you ever wondered what everyday women are actually buying? I do. And I have found a hack that I rather like.

I look at store rankings to discover the latest fashion trends—the Amazon store, that is.

HOW TO DISCOVER POPULAR FASHION TRENDS ON AMAZON

Finding the bestselling products on Amazon is harder than you might thing, so I have included a handy link that will take you right there: Best Sellers in Women’s Fashion

From here, it is easy to sort by category. For example, below I have listed my favorite Hollywood-inspired dresses trending on Amazon right now. They all feature a bit of retro flair!

And the best part? All of these bestselling (and top user-reviewed!) dresses come in under $35. That price should fit just about any budget just right!

POPULAR VINTAGE-INSPO DRESSES ON AMAZON

Iman famously said, “In a world full of trends, I want to remain a classic.” (Sounds like something Marilyn Monroe said about her favorite things.)

So without further ado, here are a few bestselling dresses on Amazon that will have you feeling like a classic Hollywood icon in no time.

CLASSIC BUT CASUAL FLORAL DRESS

This comfy dress looks so much like a similiar dress worn by 1940s film star and Latina bombshell Rita Hayworth. Gorgeous!!!

STRAPLESS POLKA-DOT DRESS

Again, this dress emulates the inimitable Rita Hayworth, posing on a yacht in Italy, as photographed in this Huffington Post retrospective on the iconic actress.

MAKE LIKE AUDREY HEPBURN ON A ROMAN HOLIDAY

With this little 1950’s inspired dress, you are ready for a romantic Italian adventure. (Like the kind Audrey Hepburn had in the classic romance movie Roman Holiday.) And if you want to go the extra mile and stand out from the teeming masses in their sundresses, add this one accessory that Audrey loved. (Hint: it costs practically nothing, and you probably already have one…)

The Little Black Dress

No vintage dress restrospective would be complete without the classic little black dress, a color that looks good on just about everyone.

RED IS THE SEXIEST COLOR

At least one study has shown that wearing red makes women more attractive to men, so if that’s your endgoal, more power to you. Either way, who doesn’t want to get caught wearing this adorable (and comfy) little red number? If you are looking for another pattern that makes you sexier, take a look at the science of seduction in fashion.

PENCIL SKIRT DRESS

The updated neckline on this classic silhoutte gives this little number an extra dose of chic. You are ready to be a glamourous leading lady!

Boatneck Tea Dress

In case you don’t know what a tea dress is, it was invented to give women a middle ground between full-on formal prom and hostess with the mostest. A little flash of leg kept the voluminous skirt from feeling Victorian. Audrey Hepburn wore a tea dress in the wedding scene from the classic film, Funny Face.
