Fanny packs, waist bags, belt bags, or bum bags – so many names. In reality, they all refer to the same thing – a cute (or not so cute) small case for your essentials. The fanny pack has known ups and downs: from being a cool and trendy piece to being a tasteless take-it-off-immediately item. The lifehack for wearing one with dignity without looking like a tourist is to know how to style it, or, rather, which fanny pack to go for in the first place.
Virtually all luxury brands have picked up on the trend for bum bags and started offering some real gems. From a daring Balenciaga to a classy Louis Vuitton, a fanny pack can now be the it-bag in your wardrobe.
While the first place to go would be official brand websites, you can find really good deals if you dig a bit deeper. Try Farfetch, Louisaviaroma, Nordstrom, Poshmark, The Real Real, The Outnet, and Vestiaire Collective.
So, here we go with some of the most desirable luxury fanny packs. Let’s start with one of my favorite brands:
Bold, daring, young, and fresh, these two bum bags can now be found on The Real Real with a 20% discount. You can get yourself the econyl piece if you’re more into monochrome and universal design. Alternatively, the nylon logomania item will give your casual outfits a statement.
2. Alexander Wang
Alexander Wang is often called a fashion superhero. His attention to details and ability to forecast any trend is truly amazing. Just look at these four totally different but absolutely amazing fanny packs. We spotted the satin magenta beauty on Louisaviaroma and fell in love with it immediately.
Then we saw the leather spiked stud piece in white on Farfetch and… fell in love for the second time. Both feature a nice mix of zips and a chain, that adds flair to the most dull outfit. And what about the burgundy leather and suede piece from The Outnet? It has so much detail that you will discover something new every time you reach for it.
Finally, Alexander Wang even has something for lovers of class. The padlock belt bag in black leather with minimalistic silver hardware will even beautify your smartest office suit, and that at an affordable price of $240 on The Real Real.
These fancy Balenciaga belt bags with a chain full of charms easily blend into any wardrobe and will make you stand out. Modest and minimalistic, either the grey or black logo piece will become your go-for practical item for years. And, if at any time you get tired of the chunky details, just remove them.
Do you feel like Gucci? While this luxury brand is way beyond many people’s pockets, here are some affordable options. The canvas pattern piece will cost you $497, the black cloth cutie is sold at $497, and the red leather piece is available at $749 on Vestiaire Collective instead of the average $1000-$1500 you’d pay on the official Gucci website.
On The Real Real, you can also get yourself a true gem – a printed leather bum bag at 20% discount. The fact that these are pre-owned items only adds charm and mystery, doesn’t it?
What about some Valentino? Are you up for a unisex bum bag to share with your boyfriend? Or perhaps, you’re into a girlish stud and spike belt bag? A brown leather logo piece for a stylish edge? Maybe a studded white leather bag as a statement piece to add some chic to an everyday outfit? All of them are now being offered on The Real Real with a generous discount.
6. Louis Vuitton
For real chic and recognizability, you can pick one of these discounted but still ultimately desirable fanny packs. The Louis Vuitton patterned pieces are available at Poshmark for $925 and $1,000, or for just $580 on The Real Real. If you’re not a logo person, the $495 blue canvas bag is your obvious choice. And this one can be easily shared with your partner.
Authentic lamb’s leather and true Italian quality at $547? That’s possible on Luisaviaroma. Out-of-time red or interesting deep turquoise, these icon pieces by Versace will blast your jeans and white T-shirt ensemble. And if you are in a mood for something bolder and more telling, get yourself this heritage canvas item that’s now 50% off – a true signature item.
If you’re young and daring, you’ll love these Moschino pieces in blue and pink. Made in rigid calfskin and looking truly gorgeous, they are now available with 50% discount on the official Moschino website. This luxury brand is really democratic and loves its followers, right?
Here are more gems by other luxury brands who love the fanny pack trend. Which one would you pick?
If you’re a Mason Margiela fan, you probably know that a good discount is a real find. Don’t miss your chance to get this minimalistic fanny pack for your essentials on Farfetch.
Balenciaga is where cutting-edge style meets strong silhouettes and innovative shapes. This Italian beauty will definitely add some glamor to your sporty chic looks.
Stella McCartney truly knows how to make the sportiest bag ever look really feminine. This fanny pack will match your most elegant heels perfectly. Do you doubts it? Well, the attractive price on Farfetch invites you to check it out for yourself.
The same holds true for Saint Laurent. Have you seen how this glitter trick works as a fanny bag? Check it out on The Real Real.
Last but not least, these three fanny packs are so different in personality but so lovable, each and every one of them. Which one is you? Givenchy’s banana fanny? Fendi’s pattern-strap cutie? Or, maybe, Prada’s sporty piece? I know, it’s a hard choice.
Luxury is a state of mind, not a price tag. Yet it’s so much more pleasant to feel luxurious when you’re carrying a fanny pack by one of these brands. Check out these featured products and make sure you get one of the best deals before it’s too late.
