It looks like one of the most polarizing trends of the '90s, the fanny pack, is making a comeback, courtesy of Sarah Jessica Parker. The style icon and trendsetter has been seen rocking the fanny pack on not one but two recent occasions, and we have to admit we're sort of obsessed.
Parker's black leather Chanel fanny pack made its first appearance on Wednesday evening at the Art of the Pixel Gala in New York City, where the actress accented a classic LBD and blazer with it. Parker wore the fanny pack cinched around the waist of her Tracy Reese dress, which featured a full skirt and feathered hemline, and under a gray Saint Laurent blazer (above, right). The very next day, the actress and shoe designer took her fanny pack to the streets, pairing it with a striped shirt, distressed jeans, and Mary Janes (above, left). One thing's for sure: This isn't your mother's fanny pack.
Of course SJP (or shall we say Carrie Bradshaw?), is no stranger to the fanny pack—she wore one emblazoned with the Gucci logo in the fourth season of Sex and the City. And just like she did then, the actress has us seriously coveting a fanny pack of our own now.
