The Fanny Pack Is Back – And Better Than Ever Before!

The fanny packs back and not going anywhere. For those who aren’t up on the trend (don’t worry we don’t judge), a fanny pack is the same thing as a bum bag, waist bag, belt bag, etc.

Still not ringing any bells? So fanny packs actually date back to 15th century France, where people wore small bags that hang from their belt called a chatelaine. However, it didn’t become a popular trend in America until the 1980s. It’s essentially a bag that clips around your waist (the reason it was coined a fanny pack) that’s perfect for holding wallets, keys, and maybe even a cold beer :)

Many older fashion trends have begun circling back around and even major fashion designers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci have released luxury fanny pack lines of their own.
