You are walking down Aisle 11 and then you meet it. The “oh-no-she-didn’t” (and shouldn’t).
Name a decade and I’ll tell you the fashion trend or habit that just cannot seem to be left in the past. For the 70s its that feather top hair, the 80s the mullet or too much bright, the 90s is the clogs, and early 2000s….the midriff.
Social psychology and life experience in general tells me that I am not immune to the “I-just-can’t-let-it-go-because-I-wore-it-when-I-was-twenty,” so here are a couple things some teenager will be judging me for in the grocery store in t-minus 30 years.
1. Bangs & Side-part
Admit it. Side bang or full bang, we have been rocking bangs since the since the early 2000s. And bangs come with a necessity, the side part. I got both of them junior year of high school and I cannot fathom growing them out.
So, when then trend hits to have a center part and now bangs, I might just go out of style.
2. Cheap Pearls
4. Mix CDs
This one might die out quick. Operation iEverything makes burning your favorite songs on a disc feel “old school.” But, if possible, I plan sending Mix CDs to my pals as long as there is snail mail (which might not be very long either).
5. Ballet Flats
If the 90s rocked clogs, we rock the ballet flats. I may regret the lack of arch support for the last five years…but hey, weren’t they cute?
6. Thinking I am going to contract a disease from the microwave
I do not remember who told me (Social Psychology application:Sleeper effect), but as a child I truly believed I would get brain cancer or hurt my eyes if I watched the popcorn pop. Physics class and multiple discussion have confirmed that this is NOT true…but I think I will always feel uneasy when I reheat leftovers.
