Top 65 Pop Culture Trends in February

From Upcycled Wool Mittens to Virtual K-Pop Experiences

— February 28, 2021 — Pop Culture
These February 2021 pop culture trends kick off the new year with excitement and new experiences. The internet brings attention to many different topics this month. One of the most notable pop culture trends went viral because of Bernie Sanders.

During the 2021 inaugural ceremony, Sanders was photographed in his cozy outfit and iconic wool mittens gifted to him by teacher Jen Ellis. Ellis made the sustainable mittens from upcycled materials, lining the mittens with fleece made from recycled plastic and knit from old wool sweaters. Another great pop culture trend this month is by AirBnB. It launched a digital K-pop experience entitled 'Inside K-pop.' The online experience allows fans to explore the world of Korean music, their culture, and art.
