CNN —  

Is there any easier way to look polished than by throwing on a dress? And what’s better than a summer day dress? A dress with, that’s right, pockets.

During the pandemic, extra convenient storage for everything from your face mask to your hand sanitizer has become more necessary than ever, and pockets in dresses fill that need. Plus, they give you somewhere to put your hands, particularly when you’re still trying to avoid touching your face. From midi to maxi to different shirt varieties, start scrolling for our roundup of best dresses with pockets.
