Don't fear the fanny pack

I used to have a severe hatred for the fanny pack. They just looked dumpy to me, and I love a good handbag!

But after thinking about it and seeing this trend all over the runway, I discovered that it wasn't the fanny pack that made the outfit look bad – it was what people paired with it that gave the fanny pack that bad rap. So I decided to no longer knock it 'til I tried it.

So I scoured the internet and found a plain, faux leather fanny pack for the hefty price tag of $11 (lol). Now the question was what to wear with it?!

I decided to go with ruffles! This satin asymmetrical ruffle skirt paired perfectly with this ruffle-sleeved top I got in my latest Wantable style edit! Add some fun sneakers and secure my fanny pack around my waist – and I was in love! This outfit is fun, flirty and trendy without looking like you are wearing all of the Forever 21 clearance rack. (We all know people like that.)

So the verdict is: Say yes to the fanny pack! It's fun, inexpensive and kind of nice to be hands free!

Skirt: ASOS – and it's on sale for $9!
