If there’s one thing I think we can all agree on, is that belt bags are something you either like or you don’t like. I personally fall under the people who really like them. But I do have a confession to make… this trend had to grow on me a little, it definitely wasn’t love it at first sight. Belt bags or the ever so popular term “fanny packs” made a huge comeback this year and they’re everywhere! Although the trend came back earlier on in 2018, brands are continuing to flood the market with new designs, patterns and sizes of belt bags which is why the trend is still here!
For someone who loves having their hands free (hence my love for backpacks), belt bags give you that opportunity but also can be worn pretty much everywhere. They’re so much easier than carrying a backpack since they are smaller and wrap around your waist instead of hanging on your back. Belt bags are perfect for festivals, concerts, running-around or even just to be used as an accessory. They’re super practical for carrying around all the essentials while also doubling as a trendy accessory. Finally, in case you didn’t want to wear the bag around your waist, you can also carry them cross-body like sling bags because of the adjustable straps.
My favorite part of this trend is the fact that there’s a belt bag for everyone! As I mentioned before, so many brands have been putting out belt bags that you can absolutely find one that fits your personal style. Whether it’s the high end, luxury brands such as Gucci or YSL or streetwear brands such as Stüssy and Fila, you’re covered. My current favorite is this one from Tommy Jeans! I just love Tommy Hilfiger and I also love the color combo as well (I have also linked some of my favorites below)!
The belt bag trend is definitely one of the more popular fashion trends that made a comeback in 2018 but again, it’s a like it or hate it accessory. In my opinion, belt bags are the best way to carry your things around with you. There’s so much versatility that comes with carrying a belt bag, it’ll be your new favorite accessory! Let me know what you guys think of this trend in the comments below and tell me about your favorite brands for belt bags too!
