Happy International Fanny Pack Day!
If three years ago, someone had told us that one day we’d have a crush on these bags, we’d been fit of laughter. But it’s true: belt bags and fanny packs are THE 2018 bag trend – and we’re hopelessly devoted to them!
Bum bag, fanny pack or just – the good old bum bag! While the bum bags were characterized by the dealers’ image back in the 80s, it’s shaped by the cool kids today! The relict jumped from the trekking holidays right into the runway shows. You’ll find them in elegant styles à la Gucci, but also sporty bags in 90s style celebrate a comeback in 2018.
What’s great: although the name seems to require wearing a belt bag at the pants’ waistband, in 2018, it can be easily worn as a crossbody bag. Put your head and one arm through the bag’s belt and there you go! It works perfectly underneath a coat too.
On waist level, the 2018 bag trend is a real success – there, it highlights the feminine silhouette.
Styling-wise, everything is possible: the belt bag looks as cool sporty with a hoodie as with your cosy outfit combing sweater and pants. Many styling inspirations prove: belt bags look fantastic worn with an elegant skirt or dress.
