It was designed to keep you “hand-free” when wearing it. And most of them was made with leather and bulky pockets. When it comes to the 90’s, it had its down time and wearing a fanny pack was considered as nerdy.
More than ten years ago, different brands try to bring back the trend of cross body bag. They have eliminated the bulky shape and they are loved by rappers and celebrities. Furthermore, people doesn’t wear them on the waist anymore. Instead, they wear it across the shoulder – where the idea of cross body bag really kicks in. It helps to reduce the pockets you need and keep your outfit neat and minimal.
