We’ve covered belt bags on this thread! I have one and at least in my area, the trend is still going strong. I got it in 2020 and use it all the time. It’s great for dog walks and errands. I have the OG Lululemon one in black like every other basic b. You can also buy nicer ones that aren’t as sporty and I’ve even seen some that are convertible (crossbody to belt bag).

In 2019 I went to Barcelona with my mom and we met up with one of her friends there. Her friend now lives in Andorra and travels often throughout Europe. She had a beautiful leather crossbody bag that converted to a fanny pack-style bag that she’d gotten somewhere in Italy. If you’re worried about it not being timeless (cause let’s be real, the Lulu one is definitely not), you could go for something like that. As an aside, Barcelona is known as the pickpocket capital of the world and plenty of tourists were wearing their backpacks on the front. I’d been pickpocketed in Cape Town earlier that year, so was VERY aware of my bag in Spain. A bag that can be kept close to your body and in the front will always be practical for travel. I spent that trip hoping to find a nice bag like my mom’s friend.
