This shopping season, keep your hands free and your valuables secure with a belt bag – the perfect alternative to lugging an oversized handbag around the mall. While thoughts of the dreaded ‘fanny pack’ from years’ past may conjure up nightmares of dorky tourists and unfashionable mom style, this time around designers have updated the belt bag to a sleek and trendy must-have item. Jean-Paul Gaultier included the look in his final Hermes collection and Mr. Elegance himself, Michael Kors designed a number of belt bags for F/W. Our suggestion: opt to splurge for a high end bag for a more sophisticated option to the sartorial embarrassment that once was the ‘fanny pack’.
