Everything ’90s is still trending hard, and it looks like nail polish company Essie is all for it. Their Fall 2017 collection features fun new shades inspired by the decade that brought us platform sneakers, chokers and scrunchies. 

Today, we’re also channeling the ’90s with wear-now outfits inspired by three of Essie’s brand new polishes. Keep reading to see them all!

“As if!”

Outfit inspired by Essie's 90s nail polish collection: Outfit inspired by Clueless - beige slip dress over a t-shirt, mini backpack, velvet platform heels, blue nail polish, choker

Products: Dress – Charlotte Russe, Shoes – Betsey Johnson, Bag – Yoins, Necklace – BaubleBar, Nail Polish – Essie

If Cher was in school today, we have a feeling she’d wear this outfit. A layered slip dress looks effortlessly cool, but still chic enough to wear with these luxe velvet pumps. 

Stash your belongings in a pastel pink mini backpack and accessorize with a sleek silver choker. For a hint of cool-toned contrast, make the periwinkle-hued “As if!” your go-to mani color.

“Girly Grunge”

Outfit inspired by Essie's 90s nail polish collection: Outfit inspired by The Craft with black floral off shoulder top, black denim skirt, plaid shirt, layered rings, chunky heel ankle booties

Product Info: Top – Hollister, Skirt – Miss Selfridge, Flannel – Nordstrom, Shoes – H&M, Rings – Zaful, Nail Polish – Essie

Give your back-to-campus look some modern day Angela Chase vibes. Start with a dark floral cold shoulder blouse and a frayed denim skirt, then slip into a pair of chunky heeled booties.

An oversized flannel shirt adds to the grungy feel, and can be worn either over the blouse or tied around your waist. Don’t forget your accessories! This eclectic ring set is the perfect complement to Essie’s frosty, metallic purple.

“Saved by the Belle”

Outfit inspired by Essie's 90s nail polish collection: Saved by the Bell inspired look with off the shoulder dress, green ballet flats, pink statement earrings, oversized jean jacket

Product Info: Dress – ASOS, Jacket – Gap, Flats – Shoes.com, Earrings – BaubleBar, Nail Polish – Essie

The ladies of Bayside High serve as the inspiration for this nighttime-ready look. It centers around a bold, printed off-the-shoulder dress, which plays nicely with the baby pink “Saved by the Belle.”

Add a few additional pops of color, like comfy, deep teal ankle-strap flats and statement-making fuchsia earrings. Top it all off with a slouchy denim jacket and you’re ready to party like it’s 1991.

Your turn!
