If the return of roller-skating, tie-dyeing, and other throwback activities have been any indication, summer 2020 is shaping up to be the season of nostalgia. There are plenty of reasons why these trends—many of which hit their high points in the ’90s—have resurfaced over 20 years later, but let’s face it: nothing brings back a sense of joy quite like revisiting the days of our youth.
