The strong winds and over-60-degree weather that affects our drip is officially here. (Hoodies are dope, but crop tops are so much more fun!) Aside from the weather and fashion changes, though, our romantic lives come into question now also.
In the digital age, this time is culturally known as “cuffing season.” You know—that time of year when many of us let go of our “Hot Girl Summer” and “f*ckboy” attitudes and begin to crave a significant other. Typically, the cold weather and lack of social activity outdoors means more nights at home, causing single people to crave intimacy and Netflix and chill nights. Plus, living the single life isn’t so glamorous (especially in some Latine homes) come the holidays. The societal pressures and avoidance of the infamous “y tu novio/a” question play a factor.
2020 has arguably been a political, social and medical rollercoaster. While social distancing disrupted the cuffing season “calendar,” people were still able to find innovative ways to date and embrace virtual zoom hangouts and perreo nights.
Will cuffing season hold a different value in 2020? With a pandemic and election on the way, the need for consolation and togetherness will be at an all time high. Knowing that music is both medicine for the brain and a perfect stimulant, the Remezcla staff curated this special massive playlist. The playlist includes everything from the melancholy, Toronto sounds found in The Weeknd, the nostalgia in Oasis favorite “La Cancion,” and Girl Ultra’s glow-up track “fuckhim” among many others will keep tucked up until Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!
