Chances are, you're highly familiar with Lululemon's Everywhere Belt Bag ($38). The versatile wardrobe essential is quite literally famous on social media, particularly TikTok and Instagram. It's become so popular that it's nearly impossible for the brand to keep it in stock. What's more, countless brands have come out with lesser-price dupes to keep up with the crossbody hype. That's all to say, though, that the Everywhere Belt Bag is still highly sought-after, and I completely understand why. Although it sells out often, be sure to check for restocks. If you can't wait that long, the Everywhere Fleece Belt Bag ($58) is a cozy alternative! Ahead, I break down everything you need to know about the popular bag — and why you need it in your life too.
What I Like About the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag
I'll be honest, I initially purchased the Lululemon Belt Bag solely to see what all of the hype was about. I'm so glad I did, though, because it's become my go-to for every occasion I don't feel like toting around a "real" purse (read: *most* circumstances). As someone who tends to carry around the bare minimum (i.e., my phone, cards, and keys, plus occasionally hand sanitizer and lip gloss), it often feels inconvenient to lug around a sizable handbag. And even with those items stashed inside, it doesn't feel bulky at all and could easily fit more.
The belt bag was also thoughtfully designed with an inner pocket and an outer pocket. The inner compartment features mesh pockets on both sides, and there's also an outer zippered pocket, too. I personally tend to only utilize the main compartment, but the outer one is definitely convenient for items you want to keep extra secure.
What's Worth Noting About the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag
Most notably, its versatility. The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag can be styled one or two ways: across your chest or at your waist, like a fanny pack. (I tend to stick to the former.)
As touched on earlier, another thing worth noting is that the brand has a *very* hard time keeping the Lululemon Belt Bag in stock. Yup, it's so popular that you'll rarely find it in stock. That's an obvious testament to how popular the style is. In other words, this probably isn't the right accessory for you if you'd prefer to find a one-of-a-kind piece.
Who the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag Is Best For
The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag is best for those who want a compact, hands-free alternative to a purse. The design lends itself to a casual–cool 'fit that's perfect for people who are always on the go yet want to look chic and stay organized all the while.
