Y2K fashion trends are back in a big way, but this time around, Paris Hilton is not to blame. Instead, a new generation of It girls has taken it upon themselves to bring back some of the era’s most celebrated fads, from statement hair accessories to crop tops.
Ruched dresses have also made their way back into the limelight, thanks to celebs like Kylie Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, who are regularly spotted sporting gathered, figure-hugging looks that could’ve come straight out of 2001. But the trend isn’t reserved for the rich and famous — Amazon carries tons of affordable ruched dress options, some of which look just like the styles seen on Jenner and Ratajkowski. Keep scrolling for five of the best ruched dress dupes Amazon right now.
VWIWV Women’s Ruched Tube Top Bodycon Maxi Dress
This flattering mauve style is the spitting image of a dress worn by Jenner in March. Plus, it looks super comfy, and its $26.99 price point is probably a fraction of what the original costs.

Ali & Jay Women’s Snapdraggon Long Sleeve Bodycon Ruched Short Mini Dress
Kylie Jenner seems to have a thing for white ruched dresses. Back in December, she wore one in a pearlescent satin, while she opted for a style with exaggerated sleeves during a beach trip last week. This dress by Ali & Jay combines elements of both: Its fitted sleeves are reminiscent of the first, while its jersey fabric makes it summery like the second.

Valphsio Women’s Off Shoulder Mini Dress

Cleobella Women’s Belinda Dress
It may not look like the others on the list, but if you ask us, the elasticated bodice on this smock dress qualifies it as ruched. In addition to the bodice, its breezy ivory fabric, puffed sleeves, and floral accents are reminiscent of an eyelet lace dress once worn by Ratajkowski.
