How to Rock a Fanny Pack Like Kendall Jenner

By Kate Mendonca

Date June 21, 2017

No longer just a practical staple for tourists, the fanny pack is in the style spotlight once again and has been grabbing headlines ever since.

Supermodel and Instagram queen Kendall Jenner has been sporting a vintage Louis Vuitton fanny pack while running around New York, and other celebs like Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have jumped on the bandwagon as well.

Always the trendsetter, Jenner styled her fanny pack (or bum bag as the Brits call it) as a cross-body bag, rather than a belt around her waist. This begs the question: if it isn’t worn across your, ahem, backside, is a fanny pack still a fanny pack?

Either way, if you need further proof that this trend is here to stay, fanny packs and belt bags were seen on the Fall 2017 runways at Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang and Gucci as designers embraced the 90s throwback look. High street brands are catching on now too, with options available at Topshop or Urban Outfitters if you’re looking to pick up one of your own.

With a bag like this one, subtle rose gold hardware adds enough sparkle so there’s no need for jewellery.

Add visual interest without distracting from the rest of your outfit by choosing a belt bag in a solid colour.

Go for a utilitarian look by pairing your fanny pack with a military jacket in a neutral colour.

Accessorize your summer looks with a mini belt bag in a similar colour to the rest of your outfit.

Is there such a thing as too much velvet? We say no. Wearing one fabric head-to-toe is sure to attract attention in the best way possible.
