skins or smooth leather combined with silver hardware and luxurious touches made the fanny packs appear . . .dare we say fashionable? The bags themselves were beautiful, but the strap wrapping around the waist instead of dangling on the shoulder may be a tough sell. It should be interesting...

After receiving numourous slanderings for their unattractiveness, fanny packs have evolved into a chic version of their former self and are now even gracing runways. Do you think belt purses (a.k.a.) fanny packs are back in fashion? Or do they deserve to be thrown away with all their ugly...

back the fanny pack for spring '13. If the oversized envelope clutch is the "It Bag" for Fall then this begs the question: Will the fanny make it's way to the Key Item list for spring? Apparently Donna Karan was on the same page because she showed the fanny pack with 8 of her DKNY looks...

Shop the Gucci Marmont Belt Bag via Gucci ($1,100) 22 / 23 One very accessible approach to fanny packs, as seen on Yara Shahidi with her Chanel Fanny Pack, is to simply pretend it's not a fanny pack at all. Shop Chanel Bags via Vestiaire Collective 23 / 23 Yuwei is demonstrating an...

But I think I have to be real creative so the bag doesn't get labeled as a "fanny pack" (which sounds quite derogatory, really lol). :) How about you? Do you think you'd see yourself "wearing" a belt/ waist bag or a fanny pack again? :) x TheBagHag

Why? Because, there are certain images I simply associate with fanny packs. Most prominent, of course, is that of the clueless, Clark Griswold-esque tourist making his way through Europe, visiting an amusement park during vacation, or sightseeing in Mexico. And then, of course, there are...

I was lucky to decide I had to have the bag only a few weeks after it came out, when there were more available at resale and the fanny pack trend was still gaining traction. If you think the market for the most popular designer bags is annoying, please believe me when I tell you not to get...

Fashion brands have--somewhat inexplicably--been trying to make fanny packs (or, as they're more diplomatically termed, "belt bags") cool for years. Part of the rationale makes sense: trend variation is key in order for brands to keep sales up, so it's in their best interest to try and...

While I think the idea in and of itself is fairly practical, I can't help but feel like I'm about to depart on a week-long trip to Walt Disney World when I have a bag around my waist. All I can think about is my mom's collection of belt bags—aka fanny packs—that she carted with us on every...

But I'm afraid of the fanny pack, and here's why. 1. They symbolize, to me, the point of no return. This is how you know they're about giving up. The classic ones with company logos, which people cream themselves over now, have always been for safety rule dispensers. One day, I will...
