There’s no denying that fanny packs are the most highly sought-after accessory and have made a fashion comeback in the past year. The once-tacky tourist necessity that made you wrinkle your nose in the past has now been spotted on celebrities such as rapper A$AP Rocky and the Kardashians. The dramatic makeover can be attributed to big brands like Alexander Wang, Fendi and Gucci who have given the 80s retro bag a facelift by making it more chic and à la mode. If you’re contemplating on what to get, here are five options that might appeal to your cool-girl side.
