Let’s get one thing clear: A girl’s best friend isn’t diamonds; it’s a dress with pockets. We’re often deprived of pockets (like, we don’t want pocketless jeans, okay?), so finding a dress with some extra storage is one of life’s simple pleasures. And since they can still be hard to come by, we did some internet sleuthing so you don’t have to. From casual dresses with pockets to ones appropriate for the office and others you can add to your wedding guest dress line-up, we’ve rounded up our favorites.
Scroll on to find a mix of casual mini and trendy midi dresses as well as formal maxi and glamorous gowns that got the pocket treatment. Cart them up ASAP to build your fall dress wardrobe and enjoy the privilege of storing your lip balm and phone somewhere other than your handbag.
Casual Dresses with Pockets
What do we mean by a casual dress, exactly? Well, anything you’d want to wear on the day-to-day to lounge around in, run errands in, or take hot girl walks in. We’ve found a range of sweater dresses and denim dresses with decorative pocket details, lightweight mini and midi dresses with pockets, and workout dresses with hidden pockets on the undershorts. So whether you’re looking for large-and-in-charge pockets or ones that are delightfully hidden, we’ve got you covered.
Dresses With Pockets For Work
Fall puts us in the back-to-school or back-to-work mood, so it’s time to get well-dressed for the office again. Dresses with pockets are ideal because you’re not typically walking around the office with your work bag in hand, so keeping your mini essentials on hand (aka in pocket) is super-helpful. Find a mix of business-casual styles and more formal, fashionable ones to upgrade your wardrobe.
Formal Dresses With Pockets
There’s very little that’s more exciting than finding a formal dress with pockets in it. It’s a fun little surprise that never fails to get compliments. Whether it’s a mini party dress or a gala-ready gown, pockets are especially a godsend when you don’t want to carry a large purse (or just don’t know what to do with your hands at social gatherings).
