Fashionistas should take notice: fanny bags are coming back into vogue this season. It’s time to start thinking about the latest trends and styles. To help you stay on top of your fashion game, we’ve scoured catwalks far and wide and put together a preview of what is hot in the world of belt bags. Those catwalks – as always – have shown plenty of styles to fancy. Best of all, you can feel good about your fashion choices, knowing that with your favourite fanny pack (or two), you have a sustainable wardrobe staple that will stay up to date for a while.
Best belt bag styles for 2023
So what makes this tiny thing an excellent pick? For starters, belt bags offer versatility. They can be worn over the hip or chest with a strap that allows you to adjust for the perfect fit – seamless for those days when you don’t want to carry a big pack but still need your essentials close by. Designer belt bags from high-end brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Hermes are on everyone’s radar. But what are the reigning styles of 2023? We have identified three main trends.
The structured look
Structured belt bags have a defined shape for a sophisticated but off-duty look. Pick a square design for an edgier vibe or an oval silhouette if you want something sleeker. Made of leather, timelessly chic structured belt bags feature a detachable buckle strap or flap closure with a top handle – depending on which style you go with.
The classic look
Transform your appearance with a mini bag with long removable straps, or opt for a more vintage-inspired piece with the recognisable logo monogram. The great thing about 2023’s classic styles is they come in different finishes to suit your individual look.
