We’re about to blow your mind: Fanny packs don’t count as carry-ons or personal items when traveling. Meaning, whether you’re a fan of this trend or not, it has serious practical value.
But what does one wear with a fanny pack? Fashion expert Dawn Del Russo says that belt bags look amazing styled with high-waisted skinny jeans or with an oversized sweater to cinch the waist. “If styled appropriately, you can even wear a fanny pack to the office or for a night out,” says Del Russo. “At the office, I would choose a more sleek, streamlined style in simple leather; for night, go with embellishment or a chain belt.”
