Even though NYE feels like it was just last week, somehow it’s nearly August already. There may be a way left to go before the year is out, but if there’s one trend that we can say for certain will stand out as a 2017 staple, it’s the fanny pack. 

The accessory, formerly reserved for embarrassing dads, was rebranded as a “belt bag” and began making appearances all over the runway – most notably on the Louis Vuitton x Supreme lineup. It was instantly picked up by all the cool kids of the world and slung over a shoulder rather than clipped around the waist to truly redefine the look. 

We may have thought it was a passing trend at the end of last year, but belt bags, bum bags, pocket belts, fanny packs – whatever you want to call them – have been embraced by the fashion set in ways we could never have predicted. We’ve come to realize that this versatile style is ideal for so many reasons. Firstly, it’s a small (but not too small) and easily accessible way to carry your essentials – think of it as the perfect complement to a cavernous backpack or tote. Plus, there are endless different designs, from streetwear-ready slogans to jewelled embellishments and sleek leather pouches to suit every style, whether you want a subtle piece of arm (or waist) candy, or something that will really pop against your outfit. There is no denying that the fanny pack is back for good. 

Indulge in a pompom pack to complete your multicolored denim and crochet festival attire, or pick a classic design in leather to up your street cred next time you rock a monochrome, head-to-toe look. 

Whether you have already traded in all your bags for fanny packs or haven't yet tried the trend, now is the time to embrace the look. Check out our selection of belt bags for 2017:
