One of our favorite style stars proves that the fanny pack has finally grown up.

In today’s culture of convenience, it is not surprising to see that a new mini bag has emerged on the scene, with designers ranging from Marni to Nasty Gal serving up cute iterations of the hands-free style. Seen here on Nicole Richie, the belt bag’s sleek shape and luxe materials are a far cry from the neon, nylon versions donned by Zack Morris, and they provide a convenient and chic way to store your essentials when running errands. Make like Richie and pair a belt bag (hers is vintage Chanel) with ankle boots (she's wearing the Warner Booties ($140) by House of Harlow 1960), skinny gray jeans (she’s wearing Genetic Denim Shya Cigarette Skinny Jeans ($198) in Gaze), and a slouchy sweater for a casual weekend outing.
For the S/S 14 runway show, these bedazzled belt bags were worn with encrusted bomber jackets and matching embellished skirts. We think it would look just as great with a wool, A-line skirt and a button down.
