Just when you thought the fanny pack was the worst fashion faux pas you could make, along comes a pair of homemade ass-less chaps to fug the outfit up even more. (His butt should read: "I'm sorry.")
Loony-toon roll call! The NYC subway is her stage and the hippy-hippy-shake is her talent. But don't be fooled: the fanny pack is not a costume. It's a red flag— someone needs to crank down the crazy in this joint.
Just as a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, a fanny pack made by any other material would still be a fashion no no. I don't care if this American Apparel Vinyl Fanny Pack ($17) is shiny, it's still tacky. I'd never wear it, would you?

I'll be the first to admit that I am not a fan of fanny packs. However sometimes when exercising, I find them acceptable. Still not fashionable, but acceptable. Wearing one while dancing around at Disneyland, totally unacceptable.
As far as fanny packs go, this Sportline Trail Tracker Sport Pack ($20) is as functional and sporty as they come. Not only does it have an over-sized media pocket with integrated music port and internal iPod holder, but it also has a built in pedometer. What's more? It's reflective so
everyone will know you're wearing a fanny pack cars will see you during your evening and early morning runs.
It's not bringing sexy/back, it's bringing the fanny pack back! American Apparel has just come out with a new line of nylon cordura fanny packs, which are a very close throwback to the amazing cell phone, marker and chalk holder my high school English teacher used to wear. And only because they are from American Apparel and available in cool colors like amethyst, dusty rose and peacock am I giving them any attention whatsoever. For only $14, they might just be the perfect solution to that camera/iPod case you've been searching for...if you happen to be in the market for a fanny pack. According to Styledash "these bags are slightly better than the fanny packs you might remember from 1988." Hey if Courteney Cox can get away with wearing an ugly cell phone clip, anything is possible!
