Gelo Lasin

Remember those god-awful strap-on purses that were a faux pas in the 90s? The one that made you look like a loan shark who’s about to collect a payment on someone’s utang?

Thanks to fashion’s ever-revolving door of trends, the cringe-worthy fanny pack is making a legit, die-hard comeback to our hips and hearts.

Resurrected as the ‘Belt Bag’ – along with a more sophisticated and glossed-up look – this newest fashion reboot is taking the world by storm.

Unlike it’s bulky older brother, the belt bag is modeled to resemble a miniature version of a signature bag or purse.

The design is also embellished to give the accessory a little bit of “OOMPH!”. Some bags are also versatile enough to be worn traditionally around the waist or across the body.
