Trend Alert: Leader Of The Pack
August 20, 2008
What: Fanny Packs
Why: Once considered the sole territory of embarrassing dad’s at water parks, fanny packs are making a sophisticated comeback. The updated version has done away with the glow-in-the-dark neon and oversized zippers motif that relegated these industrious, yet style challenged packs of the past to the Disney World traveler, and replaced them with an accessory that’s as stylish as it is functional. With trend setting designers such as Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs rocking the belt/bag combo on runways, the notorious fanny pack may be well on its way towards validation.
