We all remember the fanny pack as the go-to accessory of the 80’s. The synthetic material wrapped around the waist boasting bright neon colors. Which was usually paired with a matching tracksuit. Everyone from joggers to fashion enthusiasts could be seen sporting one. The trend eventually fizzled out and became a fashion faux pas.
Fanny Packs Are Making A Comeback
Fanny packs started trickling back into mainstream fashion when we first spotted them as a street style trend. Brands like Supreme and Louis Vuitton even started showcasing them during the Fall men shows. It wasn’t before long that other designers like Gucci and Alexander Wang began to follow suit.
Here’s Why You Need One
Unlike other fashion accessories, bags are selected for their functionality just as much as their style. Whether the occasion calls for a tote or clutch there’s one thing that it has to do… hold your stuff! According to Alexander Wang, “A fanny pack is the perfect hands’ free purse.” Even celebrities like Kylie and Kendall Jenner are loving the fanny pack comeback. The sisters designed a few for their latest collection. So how do you breathe life back into the style trend of the 80’s?… I’m glad you asked!
How To Rock The Look
Not all fanny packs have to hang lifelessly by your hip. Instead, opt for a stylish fanny option like the Kenzo Multi Pouch Belt. No longer do they have to stand out either, contrary to the neon styles of the past. Try a fashion-forward look like the Chanel belt designed to match the same fabric. For a subtle pulled together look. The fanny pack is a gender-neutral accessory so men can rock this style too! Available in a variety of sizes men now have a way to hold all their stuff as well. So don’t be afraid to do a new take on an old trend. Be bold and get into this fanny pack movement!
