LAST UPDATED - December 11, 2023

If you thought fanny packs were just a fad, think again! Unlike the short-lived trend of the late 80s and early 90s, these practical bags are here to stay. In modern-day fashion, accessories designers have reimagined the trendsetting style in new materials, silhouettes, and proportions. In addition to sporty, vintage-inspired fanny packs, there are all sorts of sophisticated leather and suede bags too.

To help you find the perfect hands-free bag, we've rounded up the best designer fanny packs and belt bags of the season below. Our editorial team has independently selected each bag from our favorite brands and stores. Thanks to their adjustable straps, you can wear these versatile bags around your waist like a traditional belt bag or sling them over your shoulder for a stylish take on a crossbody bag. Unlike a backpack or tote bag, a fanny pack won't leave you with back sweat or putting weight on your shoulder. Another perk: they're entirely genderless too!

Fanny Pack Or Belt Bag?

When shopping for a fanny pack, you will notice two types on the market: fanny packs and belt bags. There are many differences between the two, but both bags allow you to keep all your essentials within reach. Perfect for carrying your sunglasses, cell phone, wallet, and other personal items.

Fanny Packs

A fanny pack is designed to hang near one's fanny. Hence the name, fanny pack! With a strap that buckles when you put it around the waist, the sips open along the top and feel like a purse, and it ensures your hands are free. Unlike belt bags, this accessory takes on a layback and casual persona. It is also slightly bulkier in design and carries more items, and some moms even use the small wonder as a fashionable diaper bag for a short out and about.

Belt Bags

The belt bag is a more sophisticated version of a fanny pack. It is often crafted with high-quality material, has a higher price bag, and has a more stylish design. Belt bags are more elegant and with status attached to them. Perfect for wearing to weekend brunch, it pairs well with business casual outfits and can even be worn to a black-tie event.
