Summer music festival season is still kicking, and we're starting to get a better idea of what makes up this year's festival fashion aesthetic

At Panorama Festival, which took over Randall's Island Park for three days in New York City (but was cut short on Friday night due to weather), festival goers turned to fanny packs as a wardrobe must-have — possibly replacing the mini backpacks that were once such a festival fashion staple. While we usually see this accessory draped across a wearer's chest, like the clout packs that took over London Fashion Week: Men's street style, those at Panorama opted to wear them in a more traditional way: fastened around the waist. Plus, the style of fanny packs ran the gamut, from sophisticated leather versions in neutral tones or high-end monograms to a sportier type in an eye-catching, colorful print.
