Yes, you read right! It’s time to bring the fanny pack back. Let’s face it, this style isn’t going anywhere, so take it center stage and make it pop! The fanny packs of the past are completely different than today’s modern versions. Today’s assortment of styles and textures are endless. The fanny pack even has a new name, the belt bag (or waist bag, if you’d rather)!
Read on for some trend inspiration on how to rock the NEW fanny pack… I mean, belt bag…
The fanny pack, belt bag, waist bag, moon bag or whatever you’d like to call it, never really went away. There’s the runner you see on the street or the tourist grabbing their travel guide to ask directions, but let me show you just a few cool ways to wear it and turn those naysayers into fanny pack wearers!
Fanny packs are practical, convenient and trendy for those times when a spacious shoulder bag or that giant tote just won’t do, and you want something small, fresh and new. After all, our days are getting longer, so our loads need to be lighter.

A spontaneous date night with your beau can have you feeling light, free, and oh so sexy. Try the sleek and seductive Elizabeth and James™ Cynnie Belt Bag to set the tone for your mood.

The best thing about denim is that you’re always wrapped in comfort and confidence, day or night. Great jeans really do highlight our best assets -- from a great seat to strong legs, and everything in between.
A great-fitting pair of jeans can be paired in an astounding number of ways -- dressed up with a great jacket, purse, heels and accessories, or dressed down with classic Chuck Taylors and a comfortable cotton tee. Denim capris or shorts can be pulled on over a bathing suit at the end of a day at the beach, or worn on days when you’re just zipping around town running errands.
Denim in various washes and cuts can be rocked at every time of the year, and I’m so excited to share with you a great selection of plus size denim, from shorts to skirts to pants, that will carry you from spring through the summer. I hope you are as inspired as we are to experiment and rock denim in lots of stylish ways this warm-weather season!

With wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d focus on the most important design element of any wedding—the bride’s dress. After all, the entire theme of the wedding hinges upon the wedding dress! Whether it’s an intimate beachside affair, a chic courthouse wedding, or an all-out black-tie wedding, the right wedding dress is definitely of the utmost importance.
Showcased below are three standout bridal dress trends that are both timeless and on trend—a great combination, no matter what kind of bride you are.
A sweetheart strapless dress is the ultimate in simple, feminine style. It not only flatters the neckline and décolleté, it works with all types of brides—from traditional to romantic.
For something even more breathtaking, a wedding dress with a low back or lace back detail makes your exits as dramatic as your entrances. Try them with a cowl-neck front or even a halter if you have a fuller bust.
Last, but certainly not least, one of the most dramatic and stunning silhouettes in the world of bridal dresses is the trumpet gown. This classic shape accentuates curves like no other. It hugs in at all the right places and flares out into a train in the back, which can be of varying lengths.
No matter what wedding dress style you end up saying “I do” to, when “Here Comes the Bride” comes on, make sure it leaves an impression that will last a lifetime!

When it comes to the world of men’s shoes, it really is an exciting time to be a guy. Not that I have experience in it firsthand, but I definitely believe that a well-dressed man isn't complete without the perfect pair of shoes, am I right? There are lots of awesome footwear options this spring for guys to put on heavy rotation—from sandals to sneakers; we’re seeing lots of old favorites making a triumphant comeback in stylish new ways!
Below is our shortlist of top styles to note this spring for men’s footwear—straight from the runways to real life. There’s really something for every guy. There’s the laidback fisherman sandal, which by the way, is one throwback style that’s making a very unexpected but welome return.
There’s also a huge focus on retro-style sneakers from New Balance, Nike and other classic athletic brands. These aren’t just for the gym or running errands, gents. On the contrary, the most stylish guys are wearing them with everything from chinos and a blazer to even mixing things up by rocking them with their corporate business suits! They sure make those morning commutes a lot more comfortable.
If you’re less on-the-go dude and more beach-bum material this spring and summer, you’ll love the leather slides that are popping up all over the place, particularly in leather. Birkenstock sandals, anyone?
For the more preppy gentlemen out there, there’s something for you, too. The moccasin loafer is a great option for a more laidback addition to your chinos and other office staples. Who knew your dad’s favorite shoe would be deemed as one of the season’s most on-trend men’s shoe must haves? Fashion really has a cyclical nature, doesn’t it?
Check out a few of our favorites in men’s spring footwear below:
The Fisherman Sandal
