By now you’ve likely realized that the fanny pack is back and not even in an ironic way. More commonly referred to as a belt bag these days, designers have championed the look on the runway for several seasons now, transforming the once nerdy silhouette into a must-have accessory from sporty to ultra-feminine. Celebrities and fashion darlings alike are rocking the look at every turn as added proof that the modern belt bag is the way to go hands-free for summer.

"In fashion at the moment, it’s all about being free. A fanny pack has that attitude."

“In fashion at the moment, it’s all about being free—that whole attitude of being a loose, free spirit and doing what you want,” says Marina Larroude, fashion director at Barneys New York. “A fanny pack has that attitude. There are so many variations, including sporty ones like Fila or refined and feminine styles.”

Not just a craze, Larroude says the trend is sticking around for a while, boasting its versatility not only with activewear, but with everything in your wardrobe. “It gives an instant update to any look. I strongly recommend trying it over a dress, jeans or skirt.”

Whether with a cozy sweat set on the go or polished workwear, the stylish belt bags below are some of the season's best offerings.
