There is a reason 90s and Y2K-era fashion is back -- The Doctors say it's a way of coping with the stress and uncertainty of the current state of the world and the COVID-19 pandemic

The Doctors explains the resurgence of throwback styles, trends, and pop culture is likely providing many with a sense of relief right now. Studies have found that embracing nostalgia can be a great way to cope during a stressful time.

"Nostalgia has a purpose... it gives you the sense of positive vibes," psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli explains. "When we're going through difficult times in the present, we need that. We need to look back at things and feel confident and feel good."

He also says these trends of yesterday remind us of what we like, what we enjoy, what makes us feel good, what we want from the future. Dr. Sportelli says right now is "one of the most anxious times in history" and a good dose of nostalgia can be a great way to help you feel better.
