In just a few seasons, the fashion pack has transformed the fanny pack from a tourist staple to a high-fashion statement. With so many ways we’re bogged down these days, it’s a relief to have your hands free once in a while. And you may think that the fanny pack is just too much, once you taste the sweet freedom of having your hands free to browse a rack, hold a coffee, and take a selfie, you’ll be converted. Designers are hoping you’ll see the light, because plenty of them are offering up takes on the fanny pack that ring in under $200 — the accessories sweet spot that lets you play and get something in soft, sumptuous leather. Slide your phone and essentials into one next time you run to Trader Joe’s and you’ll see why everyone from America Ferrera to Rachel Zoe have all been spotted sporting these bags.
