Everything old is new again. Case in point: Fanny packs have made a major comeback. While "waist bags" were ridiculed back in the day for being super-unstylish and dorky, they've gotten a seriously stylish upgrade. Now, you can find fanny packs in chic patterns and sleek colors that will have everyone wanting to hop on that '90s bandwagon.
In a lot of ways, it actually makes sense that fanny packs are popular again: They are a convenient option for workouts and travel. And they're especially useful if, for instance, you've got a run planned and don't know what to do with all your stuff... or if you're going to be sightseeing all day and have no interest in lugging a heavy bag around with you. Honestly? They're kind of genius.
So without further ado, here are our favorite fanny packs of the moment, from affordable options you can pick up at the drugstore to a luxe versions from a top designer brands.

Go back to school with this classic backpack brand's take on the fanny pack. It features two zipper pockets and an adjustable waist. We're fans of the black satin diamond quilted design, seen here.
