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".
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.
