Thigh Fanny Packs
I know you’re still in shock that the fanny pack movement has picked up this much speed. And it doesn’t seem to be slowing down, especially now that Bella Hadid is wearing them around her thigh.

Boots in the Summer
Forget about those cute sandals. If you really want to look like a fashion pro, you’ll pair your flowy dresses with edgy boots. Kate Bosworth’s wearing Alexander McQueen studded combat boots ($1,995; neimanmarcus.com), but you can switch up with a pair of trendy western-inspired boots at the link ahead.
