Whether you call them fanny packs, bum bags or belt bags we can all agree that they made a comeback this year. Not only are they super easy to carry, but they can seamlessly go with any outfit! I can admit, I’m such a bag lady. I used to carry huge purses and fill it with a million things that I didn’t necessarily need. With the resurgence of the fanny pack I pretty much force myself to carry only what I need. With that being said, they do come in a bunch of different sizes that allow you to carry more stuff but I like the challenge of downsizing. By downsizing I can actually keep track of what’s in there anyway!
I also love the fact that it doubles as a belt. Cinching in your waist helps define your shape and adds dimension to your outfit. Any kind of animal print is trending right now so the faux crocodile leather adds a sophisticated touch. In my next blog post, I’ll show you another way you can style a fanny pack, so stay tuned!
Have you hopped on the fanny pack bandwagon or are you loyal to your larger handbags?
*I am so grateful to be partnering up with River Island for a series of summer looks! Throughout the next few weeks I will be sharing with you how I style some of my favorite pieces from their site.
