Style Trend: Fanny Packs Have Grown Up. Introducing the Belt Bag
With two little ones on my heels, being hands free has become a priority. My boys prompted me to want a belt bag because they're practical. The fashionista in me felt I needed one because I love how they look. There's isn't much of a difference between a fanny pack and a belt bag, except for the fact that the former may remind you of something your grandma would wear. Hence, the fashion world adopted a new name for these convenient carryalls and came out with updated designs that are giving crossbody bags a run for their money. The one I'm wearing from Theory is sold out (you can see more detail shots in Street Style: Paris in Chicago), but here's a similar style for less. Scroll below to shop five belt bags we love.
