You know those moments when you’re trying on dresses, and it comes down to two that you love, but you have to choose between them? The first dress looks and feels great, but then you try the second dress and you discover it has pockets. Bazinga! The choice is made. Dresses with pockets always win. Sometimes we will even add pockets to a dress we already love. Why? Pocketed dresses empower you to go leaf-peeping without having to trudge with a heavy purse through the park. So here are plenty of adorable dresses with pockets that will keep you cute-purse-free.

1. UO Flannel Button-Down Mini Dress ($69): This plaid button-down dress looks great, whatever the weather. Wear it alone or layer with a sweater for a totally ’90s It-girl look.

2. Anthropologie Gracie Tweed Dress ($138, sold out): Imagine walking into your office looking chic in this tweed dress and being able to grab your phone, your key card, or perhaps your business card holder in seconds flat. Very suave.

3. ModCloth Loop, Twirl, and Arch Maxi Dress ($100): This beautiful, romantic maxi is perfect for girls’ night or an intimate dinner. Plus, you can keep your lip gloss handy in the hidden pockets.
