Bum bags are back. This may be hard for many of you to get on board with but if Rihanna's wearing a Chanel one at PFW and Kylie Jenner was rocking one at Coachella we feel like we can't ignore this anymore.

With 90s fashion back in almost every other way, it's no real surprise that these waist slung bags are also having a revival.

So can you wear them if you are not at a festival, a giant hipster, or your dad on holiday?

How to wear a bumbag in real life


  • Keep the rest of your outfit simple - don't try and make several fashion statements at once, you will look immediately try hard.

  • If you want to avoid looking like you got lost trying to find your tent, we'd suggest avoiding any serious prints. Aztecs included.

  • Don't try to conceal the bum bag - then you really will look like your dad hiding your passports from rogues.

  • If you're worried about that tourist look, try keeping it slung to one side of your hip.

  • Also avoid having it around your actual waist.

  • As with all bags, the better the fabic the nicer it will look. A proper leather one will alway look the best.

We'll admit this certainly isn't a look for everyone, and we're not sure it's going to be sticking around for years to come, but hey, at a festival who's going to be laughing when they have their suncream right there on their belt?

They never said we'd like socks and sandals...look at us now.
