Throughout history, movies and fashion have had a close relationship. On numerous occasions, what we see on the silver screen becomes the next big thing in the fashion world. This article will explore the top movies that have significantly influenced fashion trends.

Iconic movie fashion: The 1920s to 1960s

Starting in the '20s, 'The Great Gatsby' set a trend for flapper dresses and headbands, promoting the so-called 'Roaring Twenties' look. Similarly, in the '50s, 'Roman Holiday' made the little black dress and pixie cut popular, thanks to Audrey Hepburn's stylish presence in the film.

In the '60s, the movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' had women rushing to stores to emulate Hepburn's iconic oversized sunglasses and little black dress. The film 'Bonnie and Clyde' also made waves in the fashion industry with its berets and tweed suits.

Fashion trends from movies: The 1970s to 1990s

The '70s saw the rise of disco fashion, largely influenced by 'Saturday Night Fever'. The white three-piece suit worn by John Travolta became a hot ticket item.

The '80s and '90s were no different. 'Flashdance' popularized off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, while 'Clueless' brought back the preppy look and made plaid skirts and knee-high socks a trend.

The influence of the 2000s and beyond

As we moved into the new millennium, movies continued to influence trends. 'The Matrix' brought us futuristic fashion with its sleek black leather outfits and sunglasses. And let's not forget the influence of 'The Devil Wears Prada', which brought high-end fashion to the forefront.

In recent times, 'Crazy Rich Asians' has tremendously influenced the luxury fashion scene, with its display of opulent costumes and sophisticated style.
