The Pocket Dress

Pockets keep your hands warm. They keep your lipgloss and Amex close but within easy reach when you're dancing at the club. Hands tucked in implies a certain coyness and slight innocence. It used to be that pockets were a must on hoodies or dressing your behind, but lately I've been seeing more pockets being sewn on the front of dresses.

I want to say it began with the emergence of the jumper. Pockets add a school girl quality to even the most provocative outfit. Slip on a deep-v with deep pockets like this Young, Fabulous, & Broke dress (left) or Rachel Pally's pocket dress (below) - my favorite pockets!
