Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. – Coco Chanel

If you are and avid fashion follower, then you might be following certain designers, magazines, fashion festivals etc. But, have you ever decided to follow fashion movies? Yes, it’s not a labeled genre, but that doesn’t mean some movies don’t carry authentic style.

Here are 12 movies (arranged date wise), that carry panache in every shot. They might not all be about fashion, but you can’t separate fashion from them. So, if you are obsessed with impeccable style, you definitely have to watch these.

1. Cover Girl (1944)

A chorus girl gets offered a chance at stardom by a wealthy magazine editor. After she takes the opportunity to be a highly-paid cover girl, her romance with her dancing instructor Danny hangs on a weak thread.


2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, the film is about a naive, eccentric cafe society girl who is looking for a rich man to marry. But eventually, she becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building.


3. Blow-Up (1966)

You won’t find a better movie if you want to see the 60s style in full glory. The story is about a fashion photographer who attempts to unravel a provocative murder mystery after finding something very suspicious in the shots of a mysterious beauty in a desolate park.


4. Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

This biographical crime film directed by Arthur Penn tells the story of the two notoriously violent bank-robbing couple and their gang. This movie triggered a fashion revolution. It single-handedly brought berets back into style and triggered the move from the mini-skirts of the mid-’60s to the maxi.


5. Annie Hall (1977)

One of the most famous works by Woody Allen, it is a story of a neurotic New York comedian who falls in love with Annie Hall. The movie not only discovered the enduring appeal of women dressed in menswear but started a form of rebellion and female empowerment.

7. Clueless (1995)
