Skater dresses, biker jackets. New, “diminutive” takes on choker necklaces. Scrunchies ranging from Debbie Gibson to Lizzie McGuire and a Desperately Seeking Susan Madonna. Trucker hats–trucker hats!–are a thing now. But the surge of 2016 nostalgia doesn’t end there.

You wanted to pour yourself into a jewel case, melt into the lowercase CarbonType liner-notes. And disappear. Into the music.
