Rebecca Lim got us obsessing over pretty dresses with pockets: Here are 8 places to shop for these


She shot sensible dressing into the spotlight when she wore a sophisticated, sleeved Viktor & Rolf wedding dress that was elegantly minimalist and functional (it has pockets!).

CNA Lifestyle reported that the Singaporean actress selected the dress specifically because it was “loose-fitting” and had pockets.

The desire for functional clothes, like dresses with pockets or comfortable lines, is more than just a feminist statement.

It’s hardly sexy when you grunt awkwardly as you struggle to hold in the belly bloat in a skin-tight dress or tug anxiously at a hemline that’s determined to ride up your thighs. With forgiving cuts, you’ll be able to move around more comfortably, and you won’t have to worry about fashion mishaps as you go around your social circuits.

Having pockets in evening dresses is also something we’d like to see more of. Who doesn’t love pockets? You can put your hands in them when you’re feeling chilly or just to store small items like your phone, credit card or tissues. When you’re busy playing social butterfly, it can get a bit cumbersome to lug around a bag around and keep it safe.

Comfortable doesn’t mean frumpy, nor does it mean we must wear jeans, jumpsuits, or jumpsuits. A well-made dress in a comfortable cut is classy, and details such as cutouts at the back and sides, a deep v-neckline, flowy or asymmetrical hemlines add a touch of sexiness without being uncomfortable, and to top it off, pockets are cleverly integrated into the dress’s design.

A growing number of designers and boutiques are recognizing our desire for comfortable and functional clothing that is still sophisticated and (gasp) feminine.
