Waist Bags are Back in Front

For decades, the waist bags (aka fanny packs, bum bags and belt bags) were written off as a fashion faux pas. But these days, they have become the season’s must-have in every well-dressed closet.

Sports stars, celebrities and stylish icons are wearing the trendy staple. And thanks to a handful of cool, designer waist bags currently on the market, you can stay stylish for a while since it looks like these little necessities aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

And although they may seem casual in nature, don’t just pull them out for daytime use.
