To paraphrase the Spice Girls, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I really really really wanna wear a dress with functional pockets. But misquoting 90s pop songs aside, when it comes to shopping for dresses there’s often no choice but to go sans pockets. There is never a time when pockets don’t come in handy, from storing lipstick to just keeping your hands warm. So we’ve put together a practical list of dresses you’ll love…that have pockets.

The Floral One

Who said that fancy dresses shouldn’t include pockets? Not us. This floral print maxi has pockets for all those spare bits that won’t fit in a clutch bag. You know, the one that is so very impractical but looks fabulous. Yeah, that one.

The Relaxed One

It’s not just glam dresses that need pockets. This relaxed fit midi dress is in a bold red and is perfect for those days when you wish you didn’t have to leave bed for work. Made to store snacks in for that 3 pm afternoon dip.

The Velvet One

Extra pockets for an extra dress. The Dolores velvet dress is here to give you it all – pockets, velvet and glitter. We’re letting you know that practical and fabulous don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

The Leather One

The sight of a dress with pockets, rejoice! Only to be met with exasperation when it turns out that they’re fake pockets. Why do these even exist?! But all is not lost with this leather side pocket dress. We can assure you these are functional and perfect for all your pocket-based needs.

The Skater One

A waist belt, peter pan collar, and pockets. This Winona dress is for the woman who has everything, but nowhere to store it all. No need to compromise style for pockets here. Plus, the full skater skirt means that you can fill your pockets with all the essentials. A handbag is soo last year.

The Knitted One

Side effects of wearing this tunic dress may include feeling smug that you have somewhere handy to keep your phone. No more storing money in your bra that sometimes seconds as a pocket. Which your local Sainsburys will probably be quite glad about…
