It’s funny, because we usually underestimate the value of a good belt bag. For non festival-goers, it’s kinda like, “well what the heck am I supposed to fit in there?” But when you really think about it, they’re actually the perfect size for fitting all your most valuable essentials (phone, keys, money, lipgloss—and if you’re lucky, you might even be able to squeeze in a powdered bronzer).
If there’s one thing that Coachella is never short of, it’s statement belt-bags (AKA bum bags or fanny packs, depending on where you are in the world!), and as the festival draws to a close for another year, we’re taking this opportunity to pay homage to this humble little accessory, because fact of the matter is, you really don’t have to be in the middle of the desert for permission to rock one. They’re practical, they’re comfortable and they’re super stylish. Plus, sometimes you just can’t be effed carrying around a big bag, are we right?!
