New Year, new you: Looking ahead to 2020 trends

90's reboots, dorm living, and milk baths? These are some of the trends you might see pop up in the next year.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Welcome to the 20's, where what's old might be this year's newest trends. The New York Post analyzed Facebook's 2020 Topic and Trend report, and here's what they found: 

Grand-millennial style

Thank your grandmother for using Scotch-guard on her furniture. Grand-millennial style is now in vogue with heirloom furniture and traditional designs.

90's flashbacks

For entertainment, streaming services like Hulu, Disney+ and Netflix are bringing back  classic shows like Animaniacs and Party of 5. There is also a reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer expected this year. 


Remember dorm life? A growing number of people are choosing to live in a similar situation. Communities are forming in major cities like New York, where groups of people share a living room and kitchen, in exchange for cheaper bedrooms and amenities like free WiFi.

Milk baths

This year may mean longer waits for a turn in the bathroom. Milk baths are becoming a popular way to help soothe irritated skin. Literal milk, in either powdered or liquid form, is added to a bath with other scents or essential oils. 

Space travel

NASA is expected to open the International Space Station for private missions this year. The trips won't be cheap, and are expected to cost $35,000 a night.


Less of a diet and more of a lifestyle, Flexitarianism encourages people to eat more plants and plant-based proteins, eating animal products only occasionally. It's appeal is that it's a diet that is still considered healthy, but has fewer rigid rules than a vegetarian or vegan diet. 

'Sober Curiosity'

For those looking to cut alcohol out of their lives, or who just want to more closely examine their relationship with alcohol and drinking culture, the 'sober curious' movement might be for you.  

Pets welcome!

More and more places are excepting pets as guests. Thirteen MLB teams already host 'bark in the park' games, and this year the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is offering concierge and butler services for dogs.
