The End Is Near: Fanny Packs Are Back

We don’t know exactly where to begin with this one so we’ll just go ahead and jump right in: fanny packs are making a comeback. Yes, we we're just as shocked as you are right now. Trendhunter spotted the hands-free bags on the streets, and evidently, not just for tourists and creepy joggers in short shorts, the fanny pack is touted as a must-have for busy eco-conscious urbanites, with new enhancements like an iPod pocket, a Blackberry pouch, and compartments for your wallet and keys.

Our response: really? Really? Because, let us be crystal clear on this – there is nothing chic about wearing something that looks like a tool belt around your waist. Using a subway commute as an excuse to have your shoulders free is ridiculous. The only time a fanny pack/utility belt is acceptable is if you have to walk your dog. We will give you a hall pass for that use and that use ONLY.

If you and your pooch would like to play, this Guess Demi Mini Waistpack ($58) is a cute, hands-free alternative to juggling treats, leashes, poop bags, toys, your phone and your keys. We repeat: if you are playing with your dog, we are fine with this as an acceptable option.

But if we catch you out at night with this thing around your waist, it doesn’t matter how eco-friendly it is, we will make fun of you.
