The 1990s were a wild time for fashion in Miami, and the new show The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is inspiring us to revisit the era.

If you’re obsessed with the FX series, there’s no doubt the style has something to do with it. (If you’re REALLY obsessed, you can actually book a stay in the late designer’s South Beach mansion.) The crime drama concerns the events surrounding the murder of iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace and the man who killed him, Andrew Cunanan.

The show has ruffled the feathers of various critics, including the Versace family, who refused to loan any of the designer’s pieces to the show. Still, ratings are high, and audiences are loving the nine-episode series and swooning over the recreated fashion.

Penélope Cruz stars as the designer’s sister, Donatella Versace, who would eventually take over the empire. Her costumes, Versace’s designs, and the style of other Miami residents during the decade are total costume porn.

We’ve compiled some pieces that remind us of the period. (At a far more affordable price point!) Because if you’re obsessed with the show, just like us, then here are a few fashion pieces that emulate ’90s Miami fashion. Check ’em out:
