Oh, fashion designers -- you can be so perplexing sometimes. Just yesterday, Tory Burch revealed a stunningly beautiful Spring 2014 line, with models walking down the runway in bohemian-chic looks. But one model caught our eye with her clutch, which, instead of being held in her hand, dangled in front of her like magic...
This could only mean one thing: Yes, Burch brought out the fanny pack.
This isn't the first time we've seen this interesting accessory on the runway, on the streets or even at red carpet events. The fanny pack seems to be the one item designers and celebrities desperately want to make a "thing."
How badly do they want to make it work? Here are all the ways fashion has tried to push the fanny pack upon us:
As a festival accessory: We get it. You're at FYF Fest and you're in L.A., where comfort usually takes precedence over style. But your butterfly fanny pack is just a little too comfy-looking.
On Givenchy's spring 2012 runway: What could have been a perfectly fine sleek spring outfit was obliterated by that awkward square pouch hanging off the model.
Rachel Zoe's red carpet attempt: Even someone as stylish and trend-setting as Zoe can't seem to get the fad to take off.
The metallic version: In 2006, Shay Todd tried to make the fanny pack look futuristic and cool. It still looked awkward.
Kourtney Kardashian's Chanel fanny pack: Okay, the accessory gets a point for its practicality. Kardashian, a mom-on-the-go, needs her hands free to hold her precious caffeine. But not even Chanel can make it look good.
As a man-purse: Is that a mini-purse in a fanny pack position on will.i.am? We're confused... and this just looked so wrong and disheveled.
Amber Rose's furry fanny pack: This huge fuzzy pack (with a pocket!) just crosses the line.
So... what do you think of this trend?
We would much rather look at these accessories...
Katie Holmes' Tights
Whether you want to admit it or not, it's tights season. But hey, no need to go with a boring black opaque pair. Spice things up with sheer, patterned tights.
Cheryl Cole's sunglasses
Reflective sunnies are all the rage right now, and for a good reason. They make any outfit instantly cooler.
Khloe Kardashian's Chanel necklace
Khloe's outfit is rather plain, but by adding a chunky gold chain, she made her look fashion-forward and edgy.
Kate Walsh's hat and shoes
Walsh's hat helps her stay incognito and in style. And those shoes are both insanely creepy and insanely awesome at the same time.
Kris Jenner's Hermes Birkin bag
We love how Kris used a bright red bag to add a pop of color to her otherwise neutral look.
Olivia Wilde's Frends headphones
When people think about accessories, headphones rarely come to mind. But a metallic pair, like the ones Wilde is wearing, can totally edge up any look.
Bella Thorne's Iosselliani Rolex chain necklace
Bella Thorne's necklace steals the show because she's wearing it with a strapless top -- the perfect neckline if you want your accessories to really shine.
Gwen Stefani's retro sunglasses
In a sea of aviators, it's refreshing to see Stefani in a pair of striped wayfarer-style frames. There is no way she is going to blend into the crowd with these sunnies!
Heidi Klum's Roberto Cavalli purse
Upon first glance, this supermodel mom looks like she's just wearing casual weekend attire, but her fire engine red purse with a hint of cheetah print make her paparazzi-ready.
Lily Collins' Giuseppe Zanotti clutch
The actress' clutch is so cool because it is lined with animal print, adding visual interest to this tiny purse.
Priyanka Chopra's Christian Louboutin clutch
What a badass clutch for a seriously stylish outfit. Chopra looks ravishing from head to toe, and this metallic gold Louboutin bag is the icing on the cake.
Bella Thorne's Bionda Castana ankle-strap pumps
These mint green strappy heels are just beautiful. We love how they add a pop of color to her floral dress, and the ties on the top provide an espadrille-like flair.
Christa B. Allen's Jimmy Choo clutch
This multi-colored clutch works wonders with Allen's pink nails, and the varying shades of purple add a sweet final touch to her bright look.
Eva Longoria's Chanel bag
You can never go wrong with a classic, and Longoria pairs her Chanel bag perfectly with jeans and a white tee -- quintessential fashion staples.
Fan Bingbing's bright yellow bag
Bingbing's bag gives her all-black ensemble the right punch to make her plain outfit look very fashion-forward. We're digging how unique and bright the color is.
Heidi Klum's Birkenstock sandals
We never thought we would say this, but Klum makes these Birkenstocks look so cool. And what girl doesn't want a comfy shoe when she's running all over New York City?
Paula Abdul's Edie Parker clutch
How do you accessorize a simple dress? With gold shimmer, of course! Abdul's sophisticated clutch is so shiny and lovely, we want to find fancy events just for an excuse to wear it.
Miranda Kerr's Miu Miu sunglasses
We thought cat-eye glasses were out of style right now, but here's Kerr wearing a tortoise-shell version and looking like one super-stylish mom.
Gabrielle Union's Gucci pumps
We may be skeptical of cut-outs on clothes, but not on shoes. Union's take the basic black pump up a notch with a catchy cut-out on the side.
Alice Eve's Bionda Castana heels and Sophie Hulme tote
This is a summer look that exudes sophistication. Eve's woven open-toe heels are the perfect choice for an outdoor event, and her sleek tote is simple yet eye-catching.
Rita Ora's Chloé bag
It's hard to make a tote look really fashion-forward. Its main purpose is practicality more than anything else. However, Ora's two-tone bag is a fashionable alternative for an everyday look that can also easily transition into fall.
Selena Gomez's Dolce & Gabbana clutch
Kitschy and crafty designs are having a moment right now. We've mostly been seeing this trend on dresses and skirts, but Gomez's clutch takes the cake as it cleverly amps up a basic white dress.
Solange Knowles' multi-colored Preen pumps
Solange is officially the queen of cool. Case in point: these edgy pumps. There are so many patterns going on here but -- of course -- she manages to make it look like all of them were meant to be worn together.
Toni Collette's Rachel Roy pink heels
We know gold and metallic are super in right now, but Collette changed the game up with these amazing hot pink strappy sandals with a classy gold plating.
Zosia Mamet's flower statement necklace
Mamet took a chance and mixed a delicate statement necklace with a hard-edged leather dress. The two couldn't complement each other better.
Emma Roberts' gold look: Schutz 'Imalia' peep-toe sandals and a Tory Burch clutch
Sometimes, perfectly matching everything works wonders. We love how committed Roberts' look is, particularly that futuristic square Tory Burch clutch!
Elizabeth Olsen's Robert Clergerie sandals
Snakeskin makes a comeback, and it's never looked better.
Gwen Stefani's Triwa Henry sunglasses and L.A.M.B. bag
Stefani is the epitome of cool. We love how her yellow glasses work magic with her signature red lips. Also, her bag is the picture of minimalistic awesomeness.
Naya Rivera's Monika Chiang silver heels and Aubrey Plaza's Brian Atwood gold pumps
We need to grab a pair of shoes like these, pronto. Metallic is so great for an end-of-summer look. The shininess is fresh yet polished, making it a perfect style to transition into fall's more serious trends.
Natalie Dormer's Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and gold earrings
This "Game of Thrones" star's dangly gold earrings could have dated her ALICE by Temperley dress... but she offset the antiquey jewelry with unique sandals featuring a killer folded heel.
Nicole Richie's gold-chained necklace
Richie's gold chain necklace adds just enough flair to a laid-back island vacation outfit.
Solange Knowles' bauble earrings and Prada bow-sandals
Only Solange could pull off such a contrasting look, appearing funky and cool with intricate earrings and cutesy satin bowed Prada sandals. We bet we'll see more stars wearing these come the end of summer...
Vera Farmiga's Jimmy Choo black and white pumps
Farmiga's shoes are sophistication to a tee. Note how a metallic gold stripe amps up the otherwise basic heels, breaking up the black and white.
Olivia Palermo's Same Dress In Daytime And Nighttime Styles
This is a prime example of how accessories can be used to transform a simple dress from day to night. Palermo kept things light and fresh during the day with nude flats and a great large summer tote bag. Then, she got funky at a nighttime event with very on-trend tribal-inspired shoes and a matching necklace.
Rita Ora's Damir Doma sandals
White pumps are definitely trendy right now, so we love that Ora stepped out in these intricate white leather sandals. They definitely amp up her basic dress.
Katie Holmes' Karen Walker glasses
Only Holmes could look this chic while taking Suri to gym class. While her tortoiseshell sunglasses aren't as funky as Stone's, we absolutely cannot get enough of Walker's designs and love how these boast an oversized dramatic flair.
Vanessa Hudgens' turban and Givenchy bag
We feel as if only certain people can adequately wear a turban, and Hudgens proved that she is one of those lucky few when she stepped out with this awesome leather headpiece. Her Givenchy oversized bag is edgy and handy for running errands.
Miley Cyrus' Céline shoulder bag
This metallic-gold bag is seriously making a statement. We love how its brightness can spark up a basic look. It makes it so easy to just throw on a simple dress or shirt and shorts and use the purse to stay noticeable.
Kate Moss' Christian Louboutin sandals
This is how you add some oomph to an LBD. Moss' Louboutin sandals steal the show and we're not complaining. The multi-colored neon shoes are seriously eye-catching and fabulous.
Sharon Stone's blue-tinted tortoiseshell sunglasses
Seriously, how cool are these glasses? We love how they take the traditional retro tortoiseshell look up a notch and feature bright blue lenses. "When in Rome," right?
