Beyond the Trend: Belt Bags

START

Bum bag, fanny pack, waist bag, or belly bag, whatever you choose to call it, the accessory has been linked to fashion’s fads including dad style and the neon hey-day of the ’80s. The style transcends its status as a trend, however, with origins reaching as far back as the 34th century BCE. Back in the day, belts with attached pouches were made for utility, since they predated pockets. This idea carried on for centuries until more decorative hanging pockets emerged during the 1700s. Since then, versions of belt bags have appeared in various cultural traditions and styles, reflecting the evolving nature of the accessory. With the resurgence of ’90s fashion in recent years, the fanny pack has become a meme-worthy accessory. Click through to ssee the belt bag’s development through the ages as it’s marked different eras of modern dress and become one of the biggest trends to date.
