Discovering your dress has pockets is like finding a toy treasure at the bottom of the cereal box. Hidden gems make Us happy, and pockets provide so many unexpected perks. Who needs a purse when you can keep your phone, wallet and keys on you at all times? (We rarely take advantage of the extra storage, but it’s comforting to know we have the option.)
Pockets are also a game-changer for photos — we never know what to do with our hands! Even just casually placing your hands in pockets makes you seem instantly more relaxed.
When shopping for summer dresses, pockets are a top priority. So, we tracked down the 16 best midi dresses with pockets that you can take from the office to out on the town.
