Once reserved for dads vacationing abroad and decidedly labeled “uncool,” the fanny pack is back and with a brand-new and improved reputation. Now, when you take a stroll through a hiking trail or wait in line at a summer concert, you can spot several passersby wearing fanny packs. And no, they don’t look uncool or out of touch. Instead, they look trendy, whether they’re sporting Lululemon’s fan-favorite Everywhere Belt Bag, Louis Vuitton’s iconic Mini Bumbag, or any other style.
The accessory is also now available in a ton of different price points, shapes, sizes (we’re loving mini bags right now), and colors, so it can easily find a spot in your wardrobe. Whether you refer to them as fanny packs, belt bags, or sling bags, throw one on and enjoy all the perks that the mini crossbody style has to offer (i.e., being hands-free, having your belongings securely strapped to you, looking tourist-chic, etc.)
Read on to find your perfect belt bag for summer activities in a range of everyday and athletic styles as well as elevated and designer options.
