I was not a fan of fanny packs the first time they came around in the 1980s. Back then fanny packs were generally a tell-tale sign of someone who didn’t dress cool. They were reserved for tourists, older people or people who put function above fashion. Fast forward 20 years later, and fanny packs have evolved from their former state of dorkiness into a something that’s functional and cute.
