When it comes to festivals and other summer events, I hate carrying purses, pockets are never deep enough, and I'm not in school anymore so carrying a backpack feels weird. IMO, Fanny packs are the perfect music festival accessory. You're not going to set it down when you're dancing and lose your stuff, and you don't have to worry about people stealing out of your backpack when it's behind you. When you're spending a long period of time outside, you're going to get some sun. I don't know about you, but I'm not the biggest fan of backpack tan lines.
My first fanny pack had a bejeweled Winnie the Poo on it, and the thought of a fanny pack probably evokes the bad taste of neon and your childhood. But fanny packs don't have to be the lifeless hip dangling bags of your '90s nightmares. They've graced runway shows, celebrities have been seen wearing them, and major stores like Forever21 are carrying them again.
If you need the perfect place to carry your essentials to a music festival this year, look no further than these stylish fanny packs. And no, that's not an oxymoron. Here are your new go-to festival fanny packs.
