Chic waist bags that are anything but the tacky nylon styles of the past.
These elevated fanny packs are totally influencer-approved.
Waist bags, belt bags, buckle bags, bum bags, waist belts or straight-up “fanny packs,” (the bona fide old-school term for the style)—call them what you want to call them—but this formerly outdated and downright dorky accessory has been resurrected from the fashion grave and his held steady as a popular handbag choice for a couple of years now. Designers, fashion bloggers, and other tastemakers have all been spotted sporting modernized and contemporary spin-offs the cheap nylon versions we’re used to from the early ’80s and ’90s in luxe leather fabrics, chic patterns, and elevated metal accents.
But aside from being on-trend and clearly 100 percent influencer-approved, they’re also just remarkably convenient and functional—I mean we’re talking a hands-free, theft-proof bag that’s roomy enough to stow and tote around your daily essentials without feeling (and looking) bulky and cumbersome. Of course, if you’re feeling a little bit nervous about rocking one yourself, we totally get it. That’s why we’ve sifted through a slew of chic and style-forward options so you don’t have to. Scroll through to check out some of our favorite waist bag styles below.
