Bum bags are merely a revival of the 1990’s fashion statement—fanny packs. Ideal for travel, this is one of the most essential fashion investments and continues to live up to its standards. It’s convenience and portability is what makes it such a hit. Lipstick, shades, your wallet or your passport, everything is right there buckled up.
In case you’ve been wondering, why buy a fanny pack when a tote or a satchel would be a smarter investment? Well, here’s our take.
Firstly, it is much more convenient to carry, has space for only how many things you require at hand and avoids overcrowding. Secondly, there are lesser chances of losing anything in a gigantic purse or having the fear of leaving it behind, as everything you have is right there clinging on to you.
Lastly, designers have made fanny packs not only an essential merchandise, but also have made it look super chic. So convenience apart, it will enhance your ensemble.
Of late, we have spotted celebs walking in and out of restaurants, parties and airports with these trendy looking pouches, these little charmers are definitely a travel favourite among B-town.
Jacqueline Fernandez seems to love her bum bags a lot. She’s often spotted wearing them in different colours and sizes; we are totally crushing over the blue sequenced one. She definitely makes them look better with her comfy travel attire. Throw on a pair of loose denims, a crop top and belt up your bum bag, and you are all set to catch that vacay flight.
Deepika Padukone is another bum bag lover, and seems like she owns a collection of blacks. She is often spotted at the airport with her round black shades and the bum bag. Her beau is not far behind. Ranveer Singh joins the bandwagon sporting a white fanny pack, when he returned from a recent vacation.
Alia Bhatt has picked red as her style colour. Her airport fashion spots her in two different brands of red bum bags. She definitely does justice to that look with her badass red jacket and blue denim on black boots.
Disha Patani seems to love her black & white bum bag. The best part about her is she wears it as a cross body bag, which gives it a funky edge.
Among the others, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Amisha Patel seem to be slaying it with their basic outfits paired with a statement piece. Kriti Sanon was spotted wearing hers at a film screening paired with a chequered ensemble. These actresses made these bum bags even more glam than they actually are.
