when a picture gives you 2016 vibes, how do you say it in a sentence? Is it accurate to say “This picture got me feeling 2016 vibes” , or any other way to say this sentence?

This may be a silly question - but what was wrong with the expression that you used naturally - that "the picture gives me (or gave me) 2016 vibes" it sounds more natural than the two other options you suggest. Otherwise, I would suggest something like "the picture resonated 2016" or "the picture evoked 2016".

  • @Michael Harvey - I assumed that it meant that it recreated the feeling of being back in time in 2016 as opposed to 2,016 vibrations - but I was just feeling the vibe :)

  • I got that. I can imagine a 1980s vibe, or a 1970s vibe (I'm that old) but a 2016 vibe? Commented Sep 25, 2018 at 17:44
  • @Michael Harvey as my 62nd birthday is on Monday, I have to admit to finding it hard to differentiate between decades, let alone years :) - but the way that fashions change so fast, these days, maybe someone who is very fashion aware might see the clothes in a two-year old picture as dated... [she said, adjusting her maxi skirt and wondering where her bell bottoms had gone...]

You could use the word "imbued" or one of its synonyms. It can be used to describe conveying strong/nostalgic feeling, memory, or emotions.

This picture imbues me with "2016" vibrations.

This picture fills me with "2016" vibrations.

This picture permeates (me) with "2016" vibrations.

This picture conveys (to me) "2016" vibrations.
