Heard of them? Those bags you used to wear when going to scouting, made out of canvas in case you ever took a spontaneous swim in the local pond?
That is what comes to mind when I think of bumbags, but nowadays (read: when it becomes an actual trend) they are not that scouting-proof anymore. Printed ones, leather ones, small or big ones: they come in all different kinds all of the sudden.
Let's discuss: go or no go for the bumbag?
You can't put your whole girl-stuff-ensemble in these fanny packs, which are small most of the time.
Also: they look a bit dorky.
They are perfect for festival-season. Your hips carry the weight, so no pain in the shoulders or arms.
Some bags are just a bag to actually put stuff in, but the bumbag is not only that, it can be an important outfit accessory too! It can make or break an outfit.
I think bumbags can be all of the above, but I'm in the 'go-team' for this one (I actually only once joined the 'no go-team' in this topic, but that's probably because only good trends - in my opinion - make it to the blog)
What do you think about this trend? Go or no go?
