Welcome back to my series, Trending Friday where I talk about trends I’m loving. This post marks the fourth installment and I am so excited about the topic. Today is all about the belt bag. If you’ve been on the fence about this trend, I hope I can convince you to love it as much as I do.
The Belt Bag
The belt bag is basically the more sophisticated older sister of the fanny pack. You remember fanny packs? The clip-on bag you wear around your hips that was popular in the 90s. The fanny pack definitely had a come back this year too, but I’m telling you, it’s all about the belt bag.
Belt bags are the number one street style accessory of 2018. They’re everywhere. And most designers have come out with their own collection of them. My favorite one is from Gucci. It’s so chic.
To wear a belt bag, you have a couple options. First, you can actually loop is through the waistband of your jeans or trousers. Doing it this way, the bag will sit closer to your hip. The second option is to use it to accentuate your natural waist. Simply wear it around your waist with either a flowy dress or form-fitting top or dress. Either way, you’ll definitely be on trend. I like to wear mine around an oversized jacket.
What do you think of the belt bag? I hope it stays trendy forever because I’m a big fan.
