Introducing the “chic” Utility Body Vest.

Yes, you might feel a bit SWAT team (minus the weapons) in this, but the “versatile utility-style body pack” from & Other Stories is the ideal accessory for those who wish to roam hands-free.

The khaki and orange, one size fits all vest was designed in Stockholm, Sweden, and is made from leather and canvas.

It features eight functional compartment pockets, perfect for storing your cash, phone and lippy, and an adjustable D-ring strap for added security.

Admittedly, at £69 it’s not as cheap as a bumbag, but hey, it’s certainly a way to stand out from the crowd.

We recommend styling it with a plain white T-shirt and blue denim jeans or shorts.

Complete the look with some chunky boots like these ones from H&M.
