Are fanny packs a dumb trend?

Celebrities are back to wearing fanny packs, which means we are back to wearing fanny packs. Fanny packs were popular and worn around the waist back in the late '80s and early '90s, but now are often seen worn over the shoulder. And their resurgence is being met with controversy. On one hand, fanny packs are a convenient way to carry your everyday necessities. But on the other hand, they are just plain ugly. Is this a dumb trend?

Fanny packs, a.k.a. waist bags, a.k.a. “bum bags” (as they're called in the U.K.), have been making a comeback for a while now. Rihanna was spotted wearing a fur fanny pack back in 2016. According to Marc Bain of Quartz, women originally set the trend, but now men are getting in on the fun.

They’re also proving able to draw customers of different genders. The bags were noticeably prominent on the women’s spring 2018 runways, for instance, but they’ve also been a major trend for men, who tend to wear them slung over the shoulder and across the chest, rather than around the waist, avoiding the unsightly bulge the pack can create.

Others continue to oppose the trend, regardless of how many celebrities are wearing fanny packs.
