Fashion Meets Function: Dresses with Pockets

Are you tired of carrying around a bulky purse everywhere you go? Do you wish your clothing had pockets that are more functional? No, this is not the beginning of a TopShop ad; we just want to tell you that you're not alone!

If you love dresses, you probably know the struggle of having to carry a purse or a backpack with you whenever you’re wearing a dress, and sometimes you just wish you had enough space for your phone, lip balm, and some cash, nothing more!

A 4-panel meme showing a girl wearing a black dress and another girl complimenting it. The first girl is trying to play it cool in the second panel but is shown bursting with excitement in the 3rd and 4th panel by saying “Thanks, I bought it myself” and “And it has pockets”

Luckily, dresses with pockets have become increasingly popular for their comfort and practicality. That's why we've put together a collection of dresses from different US and UK stores that come with pockets. These dresses not only look great but also provide the convenience you need to carry your essentials.
