Belt Bags

Updated on November 16, 2014

Belt Bag - The Hottest Spring and Summer Trend!

Belt Bags are the hottest spring and summer fashion trend this year. Far from the stodgy fanny packs of our parents generation, belt bags are now a designer item, and styles are available for casual, dressy, and every occasion in between. At different price points and made of different materials, you can find a belt bag that is eco-friendly as well as one made of leather, one appropriate for casual afternoon shopping as well as one for going out dancing. Belt bags are back, and in addition to looking good, they may even help reduce back pain - plus they are a great way to accessorize your outfits!

Below are reviews of some of the top selling belt bags this season - you are sure to find one for you!

Julie Apple Wrapper Belt Bag - Eco-Friendly Fashion from Julie Apple

Julie Apple's designer line brings you the Wrapper, a belt bag that looks great and makes you feel great too. The belt bag incorporates recycled canvas, 100% organic hemp materials, and environmentally friendly AirDye technology - so you can look good, and do your part to live sustainably!

This bag comes in 16 different color patterns, from bright and casual to more dressy and formal, so you are sure to find one to meet your fashion desires and needs. Lightweight, the belt bag wraps around your waist, leaving you hands free.

Kipling Presto Deluxe Waistpack Belt Bag - Kipling Belt Bag For Travelers

From Kipling, the Presto Deluxe Waistpack belt bag is a great option for travelers and busy moms on the go. With a variety of compartments to hold everything you need, while still laying flat against your waist, the Kipling is a wonderful option. The True Blue color blends as a neutral with any outfit and the bag is extremely sturdy - you'll be using this one for years!

Vera Bradley Microfiber Belt Bag - Classic Vera Bradley Belt Bag

From the illustrious Vera Bradley collection, this microfiber belt bag features an adjustable belt, zippered main compartment and three very convenient interior slots for credit cards or IDs. It measures 13" x 4" x 3", so its just big enough to hold everything you need and small enough to sit comfortably on your waist as you shop or travel. I think this particular belt bag would be an excellent alternative to a small pursue when on a cruise ship or out to Sunday brunch, as it is upscale enough to fit those occasions.

Calleen Cordero Gavranita Belt Bag - Beautiful Leather Calleen Cordero Belt Bag

This gorgeous belt bag from Callen Cordero, the Gavranita, displays both attitude and class. Made in the USA of leather, is features an adjustable belt and enough room for all of your necessities. Featuring the Callen Cordero spirit - Old-World artisan-quality - this belt bag is both beautiful and durable, luxurious as well as practical. A must have for any aspiring cowgirls!

Foley + Corinna Lady Belt Bag - Luxurious Belt Bag By Foley + Corrina

Designed by Anna Corrina, half of the renowned Lower East Side design duo Foley + Corinna and part owner of the boutique of the same name, this beautiful belt bag, the Lady Belt, is leather. Though vintage-inspired, the design is all Corrina's, and this bag is a standout in her collection. Available in both Tawny and Black, this belt bag is truly gorgeous.

      Fun!! Definitely cuter than those clunky fanny packs from the 80s. And good for carrying stuff that's too big for pockets, without having to worry about carrying a purse!

      Nice lens! Blessed by a Squid Angel!! :)

      My friends who go to Burning Man have these awesome belt packs. I could really use one for going out dancing!

      I like the Foley + Corinna Lady Belt Bag best, and second, the one right above it. These seem the least like 'fanny packs' to me.

      Oh, and belt bag is a much nicer name, too!

      I like the one with the fringe tassel the best. It looks the least like a traditional fanny pack.
