Lately quite a few celebrities from Priyanka Chopra to Kendall Jenner have been spotted following this trend and for a bag lover like me, I just found a reason to add something new to my bag collection.
Belt bag also known as Fanny bag/Bum bag; the name of which is derived from the style in which the bag is used; worn as a belt with a pouch around the waist.
Belt bags can be of different types like a simple sports belt bag or a classy leather belt bag.
Initially I found it difficult to find these bags in offline stores but later found them at Bigbazar store in Inorbit mall Vashi which was for INR 899/-, it was a sturdy and classy black bag but looked a little too big to be worn around the waist, so I continued my hunt for more affordable options online and came across a black belt bag which was for INR 814/- and ordered it.
I received the bag in a weeks time, talking about the quality of the bag even though it looked like a classic black bag, it wasn’t worth the price I paid, since it was delicate and prone to getting wrinkled on being folded or scratch marks from my nails on rough use of the bag.Nonetheless I love my new bag 😍
So is a belt bag/fanny pack just a styling accessory? No, apart from being a fashion accessory using a belt bag has many advantages too, let us have a look at some of the benefits!
- Keeps hands free while shopping, exercising etc
- 2 in 1 as its a belt cum bag
- Safer to carry than regular bags as they are tied around the waist making it difficult to steal
Outfits that go well along with a belt bag are:
A belt bag would look great with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a shirt dress.
