This £35 Hunter "Bumbag" Is Summer's Hottest Accessory
Bumbags are no longer a tourist staple — street style stars have been spotted wearing them everywhere. I used this Hunter Original Bum Bag ($45) for Glastonbury Festival — which I was attending from the US — and to say I'm obsessed would be an understatement. That's me, pictured above, living my best life without a handbag weighing me down. Everywhere I looked on the festival grounds, attendees were wearing these bumbags.
For starters, this bumbag carries so much stuff. I mean, it's practically Mary Poppins's magical bag. Let me break down for you just how much I fit into that little pack: My phone, a portable charger, a hair brush, two lipsticks, wet wipes, my powder compact, a wallet, my keys, a little bottle of Tylenol, a scrunchie, hand sanitiser, and a packable jacket. I'm not joking. I think there was even room for more.

Besides being useful, I also feel that it added something to my outfit, especially wearing it crossbody. It was the pop of red my dress needed. Plus, not having to carry a heavy bag around meant that I was able to enjoy myself much more while trekking from stage to stage.
Pretty much all of England is loving this bumbag, so let's jump on the bandwagon, my fellow Americans. To be honest, I've already used mine several times since being back home. Read on to check out all the colours you can get of this festival (and now, all of life) essential.
