Why You Need a Belt Bag in 2018

Calling them fanny packs would just be taboo. Today's hip-hugging mini purses are nothing like their day-glo ancestors of the 1990's formerly known as 'dad bags'. Instead, belt bags are exactly that -- a cosmic combination of two charming accessories that blends the best of both worlds. If you've been wondering how to wear the trend this season, we've got the inside scoop.

Think of belt bags like a hands-free clutch. They can be sporty or chic, add a dash of sparkle, a splash of color, or serve a quieter, utilitarian purpose. After watching them appear on the red-hot street scenes of Paris, Milan, NYC and Madrid, belt bags are going to be everywhere in the next 3 months, so keep your eyes peeled.

If you're a traditionalist, wear them around your waist or use the belt as a tie over your blazer or trench. For a casual, weekend, brunch-n-go style, sling them up over the chest like a tiny crossbody. Any way you wear them, there are dozens of styles, textures and colors to choose from to make your style pop. Here are a few of our faves:
