Whatever You Do, Don’t Call it a Fanny Pack!

This season, some of our favorite designers have done what they do best and applied a bit of capital-d Design to an item you may once have scorned: the belt bag. That’s right, the one-time fanny pack got a major modern makeover on spring’s runways, with designers from Gucci and Prada to brands like Aldo and Zara all offering new spins on what’s now called the belt bag. No longer does this hands-free option need to be reminiscent of tourists or grandparents. Instead, with bright colors, exquisite materials, and details like embroidery and fringe, the belt bag has become the must-have accessory of the season. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the standout styles from Simon retailers, each of which has its own update to offer. Scroll on to find your favorite, but whatever you do, don’t call it a fanny pack!
