Coachella-friendly fanny packs to carry all your festival essentials in
There’s no denying that fanny packs are a good choice during Coachella and the rest of festival season, as they allow you to ditch the purse and keep all your essentials (keys, wallet, phone, etc.) safe and sound. And while bad ‘90s fashion may come to mind, celebrity stylist Ali Levine says that the fanny packs of today are cute, fashionable, and comfortable to wear.
While there are tons of fanny packs to choose from, Levine stresses picking a style based on what’s important to you and what you need to fit in it.
“If you want something you can load up for the day and night festivities, you're going to want a real pack that you can load up with those essentials, Levine tells HelloGiggles. “But, if you're opting for a cute look, you can wear a simple crossbody, she adds.
Again, the key to remember here is that your fanny pack should reflect your own personal style. Levine recommends sticking with leather crossbodies if you are obsessed with classic dressing, or selecting something with mesh and studs if you are feeling a bit edgy.
