Bring the Fanny Pack Back!

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.

For ROUND faces:

Play up more angles on your face by contrasting the round edges with sunglasses that feature sharp edges, a dramatic cat eye or opt for more rectangular or squared lenses. This helps balance out some of the roundness and elongates the overall look of your face.

Featured styles:

1. Steve Madden Animal Print

2. Original Penguin The Sammy

3. Steve Madden Colored Frames

For SQUARE faces:

Those with a stronger jawline should steer clear of sunglasses that are too angular. Look for more rounded sunglasses such as aviator shades and the super-popular retro round shades to soften sharp angles.

Featured styles:

1. Ray-Ban Original Aviator

2. Wildfox Twiggy

3. Original Penguin The Redding

For HEART faces:

Sunglasses with a more exaggerated bottom or slightly rounded shape bring balance to the face by downplaying the width of the forehead while softening the sharpness of the chin.

Featured styles:

1. Le Specs Peach Pit

2. Original Penguin The Bates

3. COACH Raegan

For OVAL faces:

Pretty much anything goes with this balanced face shape! Lucky you! Have fun with bold sunglass shapes like an oversized cat-eye frame or keep it classic with Ray-Ban Wayfarers or a timeless pair of aviators!

Featured styles:

1. Ray-Ban New Wayfarer

2. Ray-Ban Original Aviator

3. Ray-Ban Clubmaster
