Whether you call them belt bags, waist bags or fanny packs—this versatile fashion accessory will never go out of style. What was once deemed unfashionable—especially in the 1980s and '90s—has now been revived into a chic strapless bag option for on-the-go travel.
On those days when you just don’t feel like carrying a purse, having a crossbody weigh you down or dealing with the straps of your tote bag—a belt bag is there to save the day. The hands-free holder allows you to keep your valuables close by but also gives you room to breathe. They're especially great for adventurous days when you know you'll have to do a ton of walking, be it a hike, out shopping or on vacation sightseeing. You'll never have to worry about setting it down and forgetting it anywhere.
Below, we've curated nine chic belt bags to rock when you prefer to be hands-free.
