The Cold Gold Leather Belt Bags are one of our most favorite accessories (if we do say so ourselves) for a multitude of reasons: chic, convenient, colorful, must we go on? The revival of the fanny pack is one we’ve longed for and celebrate, but this is not exactly the dad-on-vacation-circa-‘96 model. Our take on the fanny pack challenges the aesthetic of the original, with buttery soft leather in a selection of fun colors, a hand-cut/sewn/riveted pouch with brass hardware finishes, and a natural rawhide belt that can be worn in many more ways than one. Small but mighty, these colorful leather belt bags put the fun in functional. Read on for a rundown of some of our favorite ways to wear it.
In classic fanny pack fashion, our first styling suggestion is to wear the belt bag on your hip, with the belt laced through your belt loops. The hand-cut rawhide belts are available in sizes xs/s/m and l/xl/xxl, with multiple holes along the way to adjust the size, so you can adjust larger for low-rise loops over your hips or smaller for your natural waist in high-waisted looks.
No belt-loops? No problem. Throw this bad boy right over your whole outfit the way you would if there were belt loops - we love it at the natural waist over a jumpsuit or dress, or around the hips with leggings and a crop top (or a big chunky sweater, weather permitting). This is an easy and functional way to define your natural waist in any outfit.
The cross-body look is quick, convenient, and keeps your most important items on hand while you’re handsfree. Adjust your belt to the loosest setting and pull it on over your head (and one shoulder) like your very own Miss America sash - except better, because yours has a hand-sewn leather pouch built-in.
Every now and then an outfit simply doesn’t need a belt - but this handy pouch already holds your essentials, so no need to re-pack. unbutton the back of the pouch to release it from the belt it comes with and stash it away in your purse, tote bag, or backpack. Don’t need much where you’re going? Carry it as a clutch in your hand or clip it to your Cold Gold Leather Keychain and make it a wristlet. Feel free to get creative with it! Because the bag can be removed from its natural rawhide belt, the leather mini bag can go onto another belt, a scarf, or clip directly onto a single belt loop to dangle.
