Hellllloooo! Today I’m sharing with you my favorite outfit right now!! I know- I literally have a new ‘favorite’ every week. I’ve noticed a lot of top blogger babes rockin’ the fanny pack recently. Daniel Bernstein of We Wore What and Paola Alberdi of Blank Itinerary are some of my top faves. Fanny packs really skyrocketed in popularity when big name designers like Gucci and Prada created styles that were worn by celeb influencers like Kylie Jenner. So of course, I had to hop on the train.
In an attempt to re-brand the fanny pack I’ve noticed it renamed as ‘the belt bag’ or ‘the hip pack’. Maybe this new marketing is supposed to help us forget that the original fanny pack is so 80’s and that our grandma is the only one who should still be styling this bag? Or maybe, they’re just trying to pretend that they discovered something new? Who knows. I think it’s hysterical that they won’t just own up to the fact that a trend we thought was “so out” is now “so in”.
Fanny packs have come a long way from the neon color-blocked polyester material we remember. This gorgeous quilted leather fanny pack (similar) that I’m wearing not only can be worn as a belt, but it comes with a separate strap so you can wear it as a purse. I’ve also seen bloggers wrap fanny packs across their chest. I attempted that with this one, but it was little to bulky! ZARA has more cute ‘belt bags’ like this one here, here & here.
