The belt bag (aka fanny pack) is certainly a trend I never thought I’d see myself wearing, but lately I’ve warmed up to it. I know you’re probably thinking that you would never, in any circumstance, also give in to this trend – but hear me out on this one!
I personally think the key to making a belt bag wearable is the style of the bag itself, and what you pair it with. I’m not saying that I think all belt bags are cute. The ones that look your Mom’s old Disney Land fanny packs (you know the ones I’m talking about) should only be worn ironically – if that. However, I do think there are some really cute styles currently available. When I saw this Zimmerman bag, it was love at first sight, but the $400 price tag was more than I could justify for such a trendy piece. When I saw this (nearly identical!) Topshop version, I knew I had to have it. It looks cute with dresses, skirts, jeans – you name it! I absolutely love being hands free when I wear it, they really are so practical. Check out a few of my other fave styles below!
- I love this one for summer! It has such a unique shape.
- Clare V. always makes the prettiest pieces. This floral print one is no exception.
- If you’re looking for a splurge, this Prada Cahier version is everything.
- If you fancy a belt bag for everyday, check out this pretty Madewell style. I’m obsessed with both colors!
What do you all think? Have you / would you try the belt bag trend?
