10 seriously stylish belt bags you can buy online right now

10 seriously stylish belt bags you can buy online right now

Belt bags are back and ready for action. Instagram has been riding so high on this trend that it’s no longer purely defined as a festival bag, because let’s be honest, love them or hate them, belt bags are the most practical accessory going.

The stylish hip-huggers have a uniquely casual vibe that can be easily dressed up. Wear yours with a tailored blazer and a dusty pink slip dress on a Saturday night or style it with a blue velvet suit for a dinner event. From Jacquemus’ green crocodile-inspired style to Fendi’s utilitarian take on the trend, there’s something for everyone. There’s not much you can squeeze into them other than your iPhone and a bright-red lipstick, but honestly isn’t that all you need? It’s an accessory that’ll shape your silhouette beautifully too, so simply consider it your new travel companion instead.

You might say belt bags are a fancy name for fanny packs or bum bags, but if your looking for something lightweight and hands-free, it’s a perfect switch from every other style on the market. So with all that being said, I’ve rounded up ten seriously cool belt bags that you can shop as of today.
