Fanny packs have long been under fashion’s “do not resuscitate” list – mainly because they’ve become synonymous with the unfashionable version of the American tourist stereotype. But when you take away the Bermuda shorts, cuffed ankle socks, and binoculars, there’s no denying they’re incredibly practical. Whether you’re walking around New York City or traveling abroad, it’s always nice to go hands-free, knowing that your belongings are safely tucked away where you can see them. Fortunately, there’s a wide range of fashionable fanny packs available for your travels in NYC and beyond, combining fashion with convenience.
Sleek, sophisticated, and chic, this fanny pack from LeDonne is the perfect option for everyday wear. Made from Colombian Vaquetta leather, this classic style features dual zippered compartments and an adjustable belt for a snug fit. Choose from either black, brown, or tan, depending on your mood du jour.
Available in four metallic colors, a water-resistant fanny pack is great for any excursion around NYC. Go hands-free for the day, without worrying if your precious cargo will be damaged during a random city downpour, which happens more often than you’d think.
Many fashionable fanny packs today are taking on a more envelope-like shape, blending the functionality of traditional packs with a more modern aesthetic. Made from vegan leather, this floral design adds a pop of color to your wardrobe without being too showy.
We may or may not have our Jersey sisters to thank for this, but – whether you like it or not – leopard print has basically become a neutral in today’s wardrobes. And if you’re bold enough to rock it, this leopard print fanny pack is absolutely fabulous.
Fashionable fanny packs may not be able to fit everything your oversized tote can hold, but this pretty pack by Calvin Klein will definitely accommodate the essentials. Keys, lip gloss, credit cards, and cell phone – you’ll be good to go with its chic and streamlined shape.
