How to Style a Belt Bag

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?

I’m definitely still in the boat you previously were, where I’m not sure I’d ever have the courage to try this trend out. However, your styling of the belt bag is utterly adorable. I just feel like if I get one, I won’t be able to figure out how to wear it properly haha! But I’m so into this entire outfit!
