I know, you're probably reading this headline and thinking, "Are you for real?" And you know what? Yes! If you're going to spend days outside waving your hands around and dancing, fanny packs for festival season are exactly what you need. I promise they've come a long way since the '90s and can, in fact, be a surprisingly trendy accessory.
A fanny pack is straight-up the ultimate festival hack, and will safely secure all of your essentials. But just what should you pack? Beyond your tickets (duh), ID, and a little cash, Bustle's editors broke down their musical festival essentials and the list is 100 percent solid. Head fashion and beauty editor, Kara McGrath, is all about never forgetting sunscreen. She explained, "For an outdoor music festival, proper skincare is way more important than piling on makeup." #Truth
Another Bustle editor, Sara Tan, loves to keep things minimal, but high-quality. She shared, "Instead of packing my purse with tons of different things, I like higher-end products that make a major difference in my skincare. A face mist, some cover-up, lip treatment, and, of course, deodorant, are really all you need for a great weekend." Who can argue with that?
Now that you know what you need to pack, it's time to pick a fanny!
I mean, can you even have a remotely bad day with this one?
