As a sixth grader, I had a major fashion moment: I went on a bike ride around our Michigan suburb wearing a Hypercolor shirt, stonewashed jeans and a fanny pack. I felt so cool that I almost felt embarrassed anticipating how much people would be admiring my ensemble.
Cut to two decades later: People are now riding bikes, wearing fanny packs and actually looking cool. As you may have seen, designers have been releasing highbrow fanny packs this spring and calling them “belt bags.” And they’re weirdly appealing. Wouldn’t it be liberating to go hands free this summer? You could just bring along keys, a $20 bill and a lipstick.
Would you ever wear a fanny pack? Definitely not? Maybe yes?
