Fanny packs and chunky sneakers were wardrobe essentials back in the ‘90s but the past two decades fashion magazines and blogs have told us we should absolutely steer clear of them. But have we got some news for you!
The popular ‘90s fashion items are still very much in style today as they were thirty years ago. At the beginning of this year there were many fashion shows where you could spot fanny packs and chunky sneakers. Brands like Dior and Prada featured items that looked like they were made decades ago but had given a second chance to steal the show.
When you think of it, it’s not strange these items came back in style again. With festivals like Coachella getting more and more popular, it’s a no-brainer that you need a small bag to store all your belongings in, while you are dancing and socializing. And who wants to bring a duffle or backpack for only a few small items like a wallet, ID, phone, sunglasses, keys, etc.
A fanny pack is an ideal option to store these things and still be on the safe side when carrying your stuff. Because pickpockets love people who are carrying backpacks or keep all their valuables in the back pockets of their jeans.
All that dancing and walking around on festival grounds can really ruin your feet as well. That’s why good walking shoes are an absolute must during these fun days.
But you don’t want to look like a backpacker or a complete fashion misfit. No need to worry, because there are lots of high fashion brands which have been releasing comfortable chunky sneakers, that will make your grandparents want to run to the store with you. While these Balenciaga Triple S sneakers have sold out you can find similar styles from Prada, Valentino, Dior, and Yeezy.
We can imagine you don’t want to dig up your old fanny pack from the attic or ask your grandfather if you could borrow his sneakers. Luckily for you, you don’t have to because there are a lot of newer versions on the market these days. Ones that look more fashionable and updated than the ancient items we used to wear back in the day.
Another tip to look fashionable wearing a fanny pack is to wear it cross-body, instead of strapping it around your hips the old-fashioned way. It gives a more nonchalant and masculine look, which (we can imagine) would make most men feel a little more comfortable.
