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.
