Thankfully, some popular Free People styles have become such cult favorites that they’ve been duped—and for a whole lot less money. With that in mind, keep reading to uncover 10 Amazon fashion buys that are basically Free People for less.
1. A lacy bralette
Much like the Free People Adella Bralette, this stretchy bra with over 1,900 5-star reviews features intricate lace detailing, a smocked back, double spaghetti shoulder straps and adjustable criss-cross straps. Only, instead of $38, this one costs less than $20. What’s more, where the Free People original is sold in 23 colors, this Amazon staple is available in a whopping 43 shades. In other words, have fun trying to pick just one.
2. A lace bralette maxi dress
After the Adella Bralette jumped in popularity, Free People launched the Adella Maxi Slip, which is essentially the bra with a ruffle-hemmed maxi skirt tacked onto the bottom. Although the Amazon version doesn’t feature quite as intricate of a bralette, over 900 shoppers have awarded it a 5-star review. Considering it’s the same overall concept—a lace-topped, adjustable-strap sleeveless maxi dress that’s sold in 15 colors—it makes sense.
3. An oversized turtleneck sweater
Whether you’re headed somewhere cold, love to cozy up in oversized sweaters or are already working on expanding your fall wardrobe, this turtleneck tunic sweater is a must. Very similar to the Free People Ottoman Slouchy Tunic, this Amazon version features a mockneck, extra-long sleeves and a hem that reaches beyond hip level. Best of all, it’s sold in 27 colors. Over 4,200 customers gave this sweater 5-star reviews, though several individuals mentioned that the colors of the sweater did not match up one-to-one with the photos in the listing.
4. A pair of dolphin-hemmed shorts
Love Free People’s The Way Home Shorts? This pair from Amazon looks very similar and costs $6 less. Like the Free People version, this pair features a thick, stretchy high waistband equipped with a back zip pocket for storing your cashy, keys or phone. The one downfall is that they’re not sold in nearly as many colors as the Free People pair. Still, with 10 shades to choose from, they remain a great, affordable buy, with over 2,500 5-star reviews.
5. A high-neck cropped rib tank top
A dupe of the Free People High-Neck Ribbed Crop, this Amazon fashion find features a 2000s-inspired form-fitting silhouette. It’s sold in 31 colors, a handful of which have a stylized hem. Made with a blend of polyester, cotton and spandex, the crop top is slightly stretchy and perfect for lounging in, as well as for layering under other tops throughout the year.
6. A fleece shacket
Designed to mimic the Free People Ruby Jacket, this 100% polyester shacket (shirt jacket) has a fleecy feel and plenty of pockets. The button-up silhouette can be fastened or left hanging loose and is perfect for late summer nights and autumn adventures alike. One thing to note, however, is that unlike the various bright colors and prints Free People offers, Amazon only sells a selection of nine rather neutral hues. The upside? They’re nearly $80 less than the FP version.
7. A lacy mini dress
A near replica of the Free People 100 Degrees Mini Dress, this Amazon option features an A-line silhouette topped off with a halter bodice and a ruffled tulle hem. It’s designed to be flowy, making it a fantastic find for twirling through early autumn. It’s sold in 15 colors, so prepare to potentially want to buy a few—especially since it’s $50 less than the original FP design.
8. A quilted jacket
The Free People Quilted Dolman Jacket costs $198 and is adored by Free People shoppers. This Amazon dupe features the same slightly padded, quilted design and oversized silhouette and costs less than half that price. Additionally, unlike the Free People version, which is only sold in 10 shades, the Amazon version is available in 17.
9. A square-neck peasant dress
The smocked bust, puff sleeves and A-line silhouette of this Amazon find is very similar to the Free People Dahlia Embroidered Maxi Dress—only without the intricate floral details. Even without them, though, this much more affordable midi dress looks romantic and carefree—so much so that you’ll be stoked to know it’s sold in 31 colors.
10. A backless maxi dress
Free People’s Extratropical Maxi Dress has become a staple of summer over the past year or so and, luckily for us, the style has now emerged on Amazon—for a quarter of the price. Like the original design, the Amazon option features a smock bodice with an open-back design accented by three elastic straps. The A-line maxi silhouette fans out into a ruffled hem. Most importantly, it’s incredibly comfortable, so you’ll be glad that you have over two dozen colors to choose from when adding to your summer wardrobe.
