We’ve reached the end of January which means a lot of you feel very sad. And I get it: It’s cold out. Sunlight is a lie, and accompanies only freezing temperatures and snow-induced blindness. Nighttime begins at 3 p.m., and anything other than Netflix and snacks seems cruel and unkind. Winter is tough, and unless you’re a freak like me (who hates the summer and considers moving to where it’s permanently cold and cloudy every May), you’re not alone.
That’s because it’s easy to hate winter. For what feels like eight hundred days, we force ourselves into the easiest jacket there is to zip up and we set out into the abyss, wondering how we ended up here and where it all went wrong. Everything is grey, our boots are salt-stained, and we’ve all worn every sweater 14 times and have completely given up on attempting another. It’s familiar, and it’s bleak.
But we can stop this, thanks to certain nineties pop culture staples.
And of course I’d cite nineties pop culture. (When have I not? Riddle me that.) The nineties, in all their oversize, fluorescent, cozy-looking winter gear made me believe winter could be less about screaming into the night and more about basking in the days that give us an excuse not to leave the house and how dare you ask. The nineties were practical, outlandish, weird, roomy, and seasonally appropriate. So if you think that just because you’ve lived through them once, this isn’t for you, you’re about to be converted.
