Hold On To Your Wigs Ladies! 15 Fanny Packs That Actually Look Grown Up

fanny packs for women

Belt bags, fanny packs, and bum bags have gotten a bad name over the years, where they have become synonymous with windbreaker-wearing tourists and coupon-cutting moms, getting a general sense of un-coolness attached to their name. At least, that is until now.

Seeing how everything from the ‘90s is coming back into style - from velvet scrunchies, to white dad shoes, to baggy mom jeans - it’s no surprise the fanny pack is back on the rise.
