We’re Obsessed With These Fanny-Pack Looks

How to Wear a Fanny Pack

Fanny packs are back in style (much to our surprise), and we have a feeling they’re not going anywhere. Whether you’re a fan of them or not, there’s one thing we can all agree on: they’re incredibly convenient. With a bag around your waist, you have both hands free to hold your iced coffee in one hand and check social media in the other—it’s perfect, really. If you’re itching to try this trend but don’t want to look like you came out of a ”90s sitcom, take notes from these CF community members on how to style the new It bag of the season.

Wear It Over Your Shoulder for An Unexpected Take

If you’re proud of your new fanny pack and want everyone to know it, wear it over your shoulder like a crossbody bag. It looks extra-chic contrasted against a non-sporty look.

Pair It With Overalls for Throwback Vibes

Go full-on ’90s by pairing overalls with your favorite fanny pack. Make this look musical-festival appropriate by layering a black mesh top underneath.

Show It Off With a Bright Color on Top of a Neutral Look

Get fancy with your fanny pack by experimenting with different textures like velvet or corduroy in a bright-pink hue. Pair it with an entirely neutral outfit to ensure everyone notices just how on-trend you are this season, and carry around an iced matcha for added effect.

Throw It Over a Tee to Embrace Your Inner Tourist

Take this trend back to its roots. For a perfect travel look, pair a sporty fanny pack with your favorite old tee. Finish the ensemble with a pair of high-waisted jeans for tons of comfort and seriously old-school vibes.

Upgrade a Minimalist Outfit With a Sleek Leather Pack

Does your simple outfit need a little extra something? Add a plain leather fanny pack to your winter outfit to make your pared-down essentials a little less basic.
