10 Dresses With Pockets That You Deserve Now

You don't know convenience till you've worn one of these.

(SPOT.ph) What is the appropriate response when someone compliments your dress? “Thanks…” A) “I got it at (insert store name here).” B) “Your outfit is nice, too!” C) “That’s so nice of you to say!” D) It has pockets!!!!” Ding ding ding! We have a winner! Such a response is usually accompanied by sticking your hands inside said pockets, just to prove they do exist. All jokes aside, there’s nothing quite as handy as a dress with pockets. Dresses are (secretly) the lazy girl’s best friend—you can slip them on without a second thought and you don’t even have to think of what bottoms to wear. And then you add pockets to the mix, which means less space taken up in your bag, a place to put your hands, and a handy holder for your phone. Pure genius.

Here are 10 dresses with pockets you can shop now:

Who says formal dresses can’t have pockets? Wear this asymmetrical maxi dress from Plains & Prints’ Beyond25 line to your next big event. It features a unique abstract pattern that’s sure to make you stand out from the crowd. We know that fancy clutch you bring to formal occasions can’t hold all your essentials, so the pockets on this piece will be a total lifesaver.

Oversized Printed Dress (P3,295) from Zara


An oversized dress like this one from Zara is perfect for when you want to be all dressed up, but know you’ll be eating a big meal. The bold pattern and colorway are reminiscent of 1960s mod fashion and will have you turning heads. Plus, the loose fit will ensure that no one will notice that you secretly stuffed all your belongings in your pockets.

Short Shirt Dress (P2,295) from Mango


This shirt dress from Mango has the same casual elegance as a sleek button-down shirt, but with all the benefits of a dress—a.k.a no pants. You can dress it up with some bold colored heels (the cream shade will go with anything!) or dress it down with your go-to sneakers. You’ll love slipping the loose, lightweight material on when it’s humid out.

Fitted Dress (P1,490) from H&M


This fitted, button-down dress from H&M reminds us of those cute denim jumpers we all wore in the early aughts. You can put a white T-shirt inside or wear it on its own—it's almost like having two dresses in one. It comes in a quirky mustard yellow shade as well as a vampy deep red.

Mercerized Cotton Short Sleeve Dress (P990) from Uniqlo


This short-sleeved maxi dress from Uniqlo is the dress version of wearing a T-shirt—reliable, casual, and comfy. Despite its loose fit, you can still show off your shape when you wear it by wrapping a jacket, flannel shirt, or fanny pack around your waist. Plus, it’s got small slits on either side of the hem to give your OOTD a subtle allure.
