How to wear a fanny pack?
Traditionally, the fanny pack or waist bag was worn across the waist, with the pouch in front. This not only kept your valuables safe and close to you - especially when traveling, but also allowed quick access to your stuff.
Today's fanny packs can be worn around the waist or cross body across the chest or the back.
The fanny pack does not put strain on your back or shoulders.; It is much smaller that a purse or a backpack and thus restricts the amount of things to just the essentials.
As far as style goes - we would recommend that you design one that suits your personality.
If you like a lot of color and patterns, design one with you favorite colors / patterns, then chances are it will coordinate beautifully with your clothes.
If you prefer subtle things - design one in a neutral solid color or a subtle pattern with a touch of personalization i.e. such as your monogram or initial, and this will work well with most of your outfits.
