Sometimes it’s hard to hold yourself back from smiling when looking at old photos from your youth or childhood. We used to be bold, considered ourselves self-sufficient and were not afraid to shine brightly. Perhaps, the epoch of the ’90s is the best way to prove this to be true.

Bright Side collected photos from internet users that prove we looked so cool back in the ’90s!
