Nineties

4

Have you wondered why the nineties trends are so popular lately? it’s been only a little more than a decade since then, so why do we feel nostalgic for a decade that isn’t really that old? maybe it isn’t nostalgia, maybe it’s freedom. I’ll explain myself: if you have more or less my age, nineties were your childhood years, when we grew up watching series like Clarissa explains it all or Sabrina, the teenage witch, but you never had the freedom to choose what to wear, at least I didn’t. My mom loved to dress me up with cute little sundresses, and when it was cold she used to put me on a set of sporty windbreakers because it was easy to match at the mornings and she didn’t have to worry that I’d catch a cold.

What I want to say is: yes, maybe we do feel a little nostalgic about the nineties, but I think the main reason for its return is so that us, the Clarissa generation, have the chance to wear it and decide how to wear it, however there are some things that should never come back for any reason, like the tattoo chokers.

¿Se han preguntado por qué las tendencias de los noventas han pegado tanto últimamente? tan sólo ha pasado poco más de una década desde entonces, ¿por qué nos sentimos tan nostálgicos por una década que no es tan lejana? tal vez no es nostalgia, tal vez es libertad. Me explicaré: si tienen más o menos mi edad, los noventas fueron los años de su infancia, donde crecieron viendo series como Clarissa lo explica todo o Sabrina la bruja adolescente, pero seguramente nunca tuvieron la libertad para elegir qué ropa usar, al menos yo no la tuve. A mi mamá le encantaba verme en vestidos de verano femeninos, y cuando era tiempo de frío me ponía un juego deportivo rompevientos porque era lo más fácil de combinar en la mañana y no se tenía que preocupar de que me diera un resfriado.

A lo que quiero llegar es que: sí, tal vez sí nos sentimos un poco nostálgicos por los noventas, pero creo que la principal razón de su regreso es para que nosotros, la generación de Clarissa, tengamos la oportunidad de usarla. Aunque definitivamente hay cosas que no deben regresar por ninguna razón, como las gargantillas de tatuajes
