Have you recently spotted an errant Tumblr youth with a fanny pack slung across his chest? Have you surprised yourself by thinking "Hey, that doesn't look half bad?" If yes, you might be coming around to the idea of the bum bag, as these 10 celebrities already have. Make up your mind once and for all by clicking through the photos ahead.
This is the Tumblr-youth uniform we spoke of, basically, with the titular accessory worn cross-body. Your belongings would be extremely secure—especially if your jacket is worn over the bag—but can anyone confirm this is actually comfortable?
Here, we move up a degree of dressiness with the striped suit and slicked-down hair. Works.
Also works with pleated evening co-ords, though a vinyl fanny pack you got as a freebie might not cut the mustard.

Interesting how, despite its name, nobody's actually wearing it on her bum, probably because moms (and the MTA) are always like "Keep your bag where you can see it. Also, if I see it's a centimeter unzipped, I will shame you."
You have to admit the hands-free aspect is very intriguing, even for situations in which you do not need to flail wildly to music.
Such as poolside, in a cabana. (Swimsuit designers still haven't figured out the bikini pocket thing, sigh.)

Bold move fanny-packing it at Chanel, but actress Juliette Maillot's provides a nice "pop," as the fashion folk are trying not to say anymore.
Mom jeans, mom bag.
Let's Socratic Method blogger Doina Ciobanu's "velvet, three ways" look, with the jumpsuit, boots, and bag, which kind of resembles a jewelry pouch strapped around her waist. Yes? No? Discuss.
OMG, Dwayne Wade.
