I never thought the following words would be leaving my mouth…I am currently obsessed with all things fanny pack. Not your grandma/touristy fanny packs covered with cliche branding-though, I do have a couple of those too. I’m talking about your high fashion, patent leather, embroidered… belt bags if you will? Calling them fanny packs feels belittling. I grabbed this cutie from Forever 21 a few weeks ago in anticipation of my trip to Miami-which I know totally contradicts my saying it isn’t touristy. I didn’t get it for obvious tourist reasons though, I genuinely just thought it was chic as hell.
Fanny packs get a terrible rep and I don’t think it’s fair, it’s not the item’s fault after all but the wearer or rather styler. I’m on a mission to change the minds of the naysayers by simply wearing them stylishly. I posed an Instagram poll the other day to see what you guys thought about fanny packs and it was surprising how many of you were actually pro-fanny pack, giving me hope after all. More of you guys were open to the idea of wearing them when styled in a trendy way, you know, not wearing the branded ones. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite styles on the market right now, pick your favorite and lets change people’s minds together!
