Admit it: Dresses with pockets are the best thing since sliced bread. Sure, they give you the ability to carry around small, everyday essentials sans handbag, but they also serve as the perfect place to put your hands when you aren’t quite sure what to do with them. (A never-ending struggle, TBH.) And name a moment more exhilarating than receiving a compliment on said dress and excitedly responding with, “Thanks, it has pockets!" Exactly.
If we had our druthers, every dress would be designed with the nifty pouches, and their pocket-less counterparts would cease to exist all together. But we can’t always get our way, and thus, we have to track down these fashion-meets-function MVPs all on our own. Good news though, because shopping for them is a breeze, so long as you know where to look. And even better news: We do, so of course we’re going to show you what’s caught our eye.
