Confession: We love ourselves a good ol’ fanny pack (also called belt bags, waist bags, and bum bags if you’re across the pond). Though this ’90s staple had a bad rep for a while, you can’t argue with their hands-free convenience. Traditionally worn around the waist — or the modern way around your torso — fanny packs encourage people to travel light and carry the essentials instead of a chunky, Mary Poppins-esque tote bag. Belt bags have gone through a style renaissance, and now there are as many chic, functional options as you would see with backpacks, handbags, or gym bags. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite options so you can summer in style.
