You know the ’90s are trending when a stat like this exists: 37% of people in a new poll said it was the BEST decade to be alive.
Three in five adults feel nostalgic about the 1990s. A third of Gen Z’ers now think ’90s fashion and culture seemed fun. And 14% of people who lived through the ’90s still wear at least one piece of clothing from back then. (You can’t tell, but I’m wearing a Hypercolor shirt with baggy jeans and a slap bracelet right now.)
People were asked to name the BEST things about the ’90s, and the show “Friends” took the top spot. Here are the highlights . . .
