A fanny pack can be worn during any time of the day. This fashion accessory is great for festivals like Ultra, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Tomorrow World, Lallapollooza and others. Partygoers around the nation use fanny packs as a way to keep their belongings safe and secure while they’re at festivals.

People sometimes associate fanny packs as being uncool or not stylish. On the contrary, since the fanny pack first debuted in the 70’s it has come a long Way. The accessory comes in different variations and styles, which allows you to dress it up or wear it casually. Super Model, Tyra Banks was spotted in New York with a Gucci fanny pack strapped around her waist while she was shopping. Tyra isn’t the only model seen sporting this trendy item. According to Zoe Report, fashion designer Alexander Wang has created chic fanny packs made of leather. Models sported Wang’s creations down the Fall 2014 runway held in New York. It won’t be a surprise if fanny packs are seen again this year going down the fashion runway.

New York Daily News, states that “celebrities are bringing the fanny pack back.” Take a look at Matthew McConaughey who was seen in Boston at a Red Sox game wearing a stylish fanny pack. When asked about his choice in wearing a fanny pack, McConaughey told a local TV station, You kind of got to put it on the side to make it look a little not-as-nerdy.” With celebrities like Tyra Banks, Matthew McConaughey, Rhianna, Kylie Jenner, and Two Chainz wearing this fashion accessory I think it’s safe to say that fanny packs will be around for generations to come.
