One of the hardest things about being a Betch is keeping track of trends. Not just what you should be wearing, but also which trends are gross or painfully overdone. This brings us to something which we never could have predicted would be the least bit trendy: the fanny pack. Girls (and guys) have started wearing them left and right, and you probably have as many feelings about this as we do. Fanny packs can be tough, but we’re going to go over some basics.
First, let’s talk about when fanny packs are acceptable. There are actually times when they’re super useful, like a music festival, or if you’re running a half marathon or something. They’re never going to be the cutest thing in the world, but it’s worth it to not lose everything you own at Lollapalooza. In this situation, it’s best to get a fun fanny pack with sequins or some design, just so people know you don’t wear it in your everyday life. Also, anyone who can run more than ten miles without literally dying gets a free pass.
Now, more importantly, are the don’ts. I’m not going to go through and list every place you shouldn’t wear a fanny pack, because I expect you to use your fucking common sense. Basically, never ever wear one in your daily life. You’re a grown woman, so you should have all the storage you need in a real purse. Any time you feel any urge to reach for a fanny pack, just say no. Grab your purse instead and go out into the world like a goddamn adult.
