Spring is here and it's officially festival season. With Coachella upon us and many more to come, it's time to begin formulating the perfect festival outfit. I have my cut-off denim shorts and vintage cropped band tees all ready to rock, but here comes the hard part: finding a bag to store my tickets, money, sunscreen, and other necesseties in that I won't have to worry about losing or getting stolen. When I expressed this complaint to my mother, she had her own horiffic solution. From the depths of the closet of past acessories she pulled out a lime green fanny pack; this thing could be seen for miles. I quickly rejected the offer and wished I had never asked. However, my mother might have been on to something. While her "hip" '80s "bumbag" should just be left in the past, a fanny pack of some sort could be the perfect solution to my problem.
This Fashionista has the right idea. She sports a stylish maroon leather fanny pack to accessorize her vintage tee, blue cardigan, jeans, and brown moccasins. With a pair of sunglasses hanging from her tee, this outfit is the epitome of Southern California cool and casual. Fanny packs can carry everything necessary for a concert or festival and you never have to worry about them leaving your side, because, well, they're clipped to you.
Even celebrities like Rihanna have been photographed sporting this convenient style. Here she wears a leopard pack with chin accent for a wild and fierce look. Here she wears a pink Louis Vuitton pack for a chic and girly look.
Hint: Take a tip from Rihanna and this Fashionista if you think there aren't any cute fanny packs out there, you just have to know where to look. This Ecote pack from Urban Outiftters comes in tan and black and would be the perfect festival acessory to hold all of your necessities.
