Fanny PackWatching the Prada spring runway show, I witnessed yet again what's perhaps the worst trend to return to stores this year ...

The fanny pack.

Yes, ladies.

It's baaa-aaack.

And designers have taken it on with such a vengeance that even the Wall Street Journal is covering its return.

According to the WSJ, designers are trying to bring back the look by calling it something else, from 'belt bag' to 'bum bag' to 'waist bag' to 'apron bag' to 'belted satchel.'

Puh-leeze.

A fanny pack is a fanny pack, no matter what you call it.

Take a look at the latest high-priced versions of the trend after the jump -- and then tell me ...

Would you wear a designer fanny pack?

The fanny pack pictured above (renamed a "Jammy Pack") is actually somewhat reasonably priced. Revolve Clothing is offering it this season in several different colors for $65. But you can pay a LOT more for the look.

Will you wear a fanny pack this spring?
