Fanny pack, belt bag, bum bag—call it whatever you want! Thing is, it's definitely back on trend. We've seen them on the runways of Alexander Wang and Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel Couture, which is enough proof of this '90s relic's resurrection. Although, of course, the way we knew how to wear it in the yesteryear is a thing of the past now. More than just a practical accessory, this 2017, the fanny pack should be worn as a seamless part of your outfit.
Get schooled by top fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni who wore the once considered ugly bag as a fashion statement. As part of her sartorial repertoire, Chiara sported the snakeskin textured belt bag tightly fastened against her waist, eliminating the draped eyesore that it was once known for.

That said, maybe it's time for us to give this trend a chance. With a variety of textures and cuts, this bag can easily free our hands and, at the same time, tie our whole ensemble together.
