In an age of music festivals and all-day outdoor events, the fanny pack has found its new time to shine. Urban Outfitters came out with fanny packs with comedic sayings on them to cater to the demand for the utile pouch. The fanny pack is a great investment for festivals, Central Park or even the well-anticipated Spring Weekend 2015.
Don’t get me wrong: There are still plenty of people out there who consider fanny packs to be no more than the staple item for moms taking their children to amusement parks. Until big name brands came out with their fanny packs, many people rejected the comeback of the waistline purse. Now, young teenagers and college students are wearing their custom-made or tailored fanny packs. In fact, GO! NYC has a sale of Fordham fanny packs that are maroon with a white “F” on them. The popularity of these fanny packs is a clear testament to the current ode to the ’80s.
In the ’80s, unisex fanny packs were worn everywhere, even as often as women wear purses. Nowadays, fanny packs are worn by the younger generation as staple items to match their high-waisted shorts or muscle t-shirts.
Whether we like it or not, the ’80s fanny pack left an imprint on the heart of Americans. If any fellow Rams plan on traveling through Central Park or keeping their phone in their possession during Spring Weekend, take the advice from the ’80s and get yourself a fanny pack. After all, nothing says sassy like a good old-fashioned fanny pack.
