Celebrities are consistently stepping out with the accessory of the hour: Belt bags! Consider them a chic upgrade from the fanny packs of the ’80s and ’90s. Stars including Kendall Jenner, Rihanna and Fergie have all been spotted with the retro-style pouch wrapped around their shoulders or waist — but this trend isn’t just for Hollywood.

If you’ve been eyeing the trendy look yourself, then take it from Us: It’s time you got in on the surprisingly easy street style outfit. The style is a fashionable and convenient way to carry all your essentials while keeping your hands completely free. They’re great to wear if you’re shopping and have your hands full, or if you’re going out dancing and don’t want to worry about where your bag is all night. Practical fashion for the win, always! The Shop With Us team found two excellent choices — one worth splurging on and another style that will fit right inside your budget.
