Fanny pack, belt bag, waist bag, bum bag, hip pack—this summer’s It bag goes by many names. Like other ’90s style staples—platform shoes, scrunchies, bike shorts and tie-dye, for example—the humble fanny pack is making its return, and has been popping up on runways, social media and in stores over the past couple of seasons.
