My day could not have got any better than when I saw a tweet from US Instyle stating that the fanny pack is the bag of choice this summer for the girl on the go. I have been smiling all day – mainly because you have got to love our cousins across the pond who call it that, but also because I am a closet fanny pack lover.
In the UK, where the word ‘fanny’ has a different meaning, we refer to them as “bum bags” which, you could argue, isn’t a huge step up in the speaking-nicely stakes. In the world of fashion, I believe they will be referring to them as belt bags or waist packs. Deemed the ideal bag for the festival goer, there is no doubt if you are in need of being hands-free (jogging for example) there is nothing to beat it.
I still have my black leather bum bag from the 80s. It may not be pretty…….
It may not be designer like this one from Alexander Wang ……
It might not be good enough for celebs…….
…….. but golly it is useful.
If you too still have one at the back of the wardrobe from the 1980s, get it out, dust it off and get it on.
