Who knows?

All decades in pop culture started with an important political event:
-1980s with the advent of Reagan and Thatcher
-1990s with fall of Bolshevism
-2000s with 9/11
-2010s with the global financial crisis of 2008

So my guess is that the cultural 2010s will stay with us until something important happens.

I think the early 2020's will still feel like an extension of the late 2010's, specifically 2020 and 2021. By 2022, it will probably be transitional and the quintessential early 2020's year. I think the current fashion will still be around by 2020 and it will take some time to completely fade, but by 2029 fashion will probably be very different. I actually have a feeling trap will probably fade this year, but it won't take until about the 2020-2021 school year for it to be completely gone. I have a feeling 2020 will feel like a different world from 2029. This is all just a prediction so I could be 100% wrong.

I always had a feeling that the early 2020s would be different than the late 10s and the mid and late 20s I have a feeling It will be somewhat like that especially if a shift happens in late 2018 or 2019.

I'm just sort of thinking out loud... In the early 90's there was kind of this uprising of people like the grungers who were tired of the Republican materialistic kind of values that had been characterizing the past era... they'd grown up in broken homes and were trying to fight for their roots and their rights, there was this feeling of realness... In the early 2000's I feel like there was this split between like, "party hard, be superficial, let's have a war" and this gothy underground scene of people who felt misfit in all that, a lot of us had real problems with depression and self harm, it was a tough time to be a misfit... It felt so weird later into the 2000's when those two extremes seemed to morph into one thing, stuff like Fall Out Boy and My Space... After Obama was elected things felt more peaceful to me but also more isolated, technology was taking over and movies like Her about being isolated with technology to the point of falling in love with it didn't feel too far fetched. I feel like nowadays, the rise of technology has made it easier for far right types and far left types to really seriously isolate themselves with a chorus of like minded types, and there's this feeling of people being at war... Someone spewing hateful language being elected President doesn't feel too surprising.

So I don't know... I could see the 2020's being characterized by more political involvement than there's ever been before... I mean there is only so much isolation anyone can take and with someone polarizing as Trump being elected and with so many voices being raised via technology it's going to be harder to just hide from all that. You're already seeing it taking place really, like with everyone wearing black to the Golden Globes. Truthfully though, I hope that doesn't mean another celebrity President, I hope it just means more involvement in general.

I believe ‘10s culture will linger into the early ‘20s while ‘20s culture will start to form. So most likely it’s own era.

If Palm Sunday this year is anything to go by, they are part of the same era. But if I see more than two people get their feet washed on Maundy/Holy Thursday, then it is a different era.

Not sure anything I know or own if I were to time travel back to around 2016 would make much of a difference to anyone.

Climate change coming into the "mainstream" seems to be the main thing, other than that it seems more about new technologies that are announced to be "on the cusp" in the next few years that seem to be the big news. We're living in a specific point where a hell of a lot of major changes are on the horizon and in the testing/development faze but we haven't had any enter the mainstream in the past several years.

2010s will be marked by rise and saturation of social media, but the rise bit happened very early on. 2020s seem projected to have the bigger living changes but they'll be toward the latter part of it.

It seems like the 2020's will be a very political and progressive time. I think people will be questioning and challenging a lot. People seem less wrapped up with materialism. It's an exciting time.
