Fanny packs are back!

Belt bags used to get a bad rap, but these designers are showing us that the fanny pack is the ultimate accessory for staying hands-free.

Once a symbol of tacky American tourism, designers have revitalized the image of fanny packs as a trendy accessory. We’ve seen a ton of celebrities rocking the belt bag, and they’ve been gracing the runways for quite a few seasons now.

What’s so great about fanny packs? They can be sporty or formal. They can be worn at the waist or slung over your shoulder. Best of all, these reincarnated 90s staples leave you completely hands-free and ready for anything. We picked the coolest styles from our favorite designers, so you can get in on the craze as well.

Logos

Like belt bags, logos used to be considered a tacky thing to flaunt, but we’re loving the printed logo craze. It’s eye-catching – and it shows your loyalty to your favorite brand.
