Favorite '90s trend: fanny packs or mini backpacks?

As fashion evolves, some trends refuse to take a back seat. Fanny packs and mini backpacks were all the rage in the '90s, and it looks like they want to shine again. Fanny packs were popular worn around the waist back in the late '80s and early '90s, and now they are often seen slung over the shoulder. A mini backpack used to complete a girl's ensemble, and now they still hold up as a perfect on-the-go bag. Both may be tiny but the statement is mighty. Which comeback do you love more?

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.
