Alert the presses, because you heard it here first—whether you call it a fanny pack, a bumbag, or a waist pack, the iconic, hands-free, carry-all pouches are back in style and better than ever. Summer means more rooftop barbecues and and fewer reasons to stay inside, more lemonade and less hot cocoa, and more “Can someone turn the AC up?” and less “I think I need a hat and a scarf.” All of these warm weather changes also means that we all have fewer layers to cart around all day just in case the cold turns colder, and less need for huge carryall purses to keep the layers in. This is where smaller, chicer, more versatile options come in handy.
Crossbody bags, fanny packs, and small backpacks are the perfect spring and summer outfit staples that are stylish, have enough space for your phone, wallet, keys, mask, and SPF, but don’t require much effort to carry around since they sit on your waist, back, or hip rather than on your arm or in your hand. They are easy to dress up or down, are ideal for traveling, running, or a quick jaunt to the store, and much safer than storing your essentials in a back pocket.
