It is universally known that fashion trends come back around and nothing really stays forgotten. Even some of the most divisive ones (hello, scrunchies) somehow find their way back to our closets. And if you need proof, look no further than this 90s classic––the fanny pack. The functional belted pouch, which was a must-have for every tourist back in the day, has made a surprising comeback, re-invented for the 21st century.
First of all, don’t expect to find the familiar cotton or nylon construction in bright neon colors. It’s all about the luxury details this time around and that means leather, elegant metal buckles, sleek shapes, and removable waist straps that help transform it into a crossbody. Second of all, even the way we wear a belted bag, as they have now been rebranded, has changed. Street style personalities and influencers have been carrying it across the chest as a really short shoulder bag.
Now check out ten luxury waist bags that prove fanny bags are the latest "it" accessory worth investing in.
