Linen-Blend V-Neck Button-Front Mini Dress in Antique Coral
Madewell

It's an unspoken rule that if someone compliments your dress and it has pockets, the only appropriate response is, "Thanks! It has pockets!" I don't make the rules, but ask any other dress-wearing adult and they'll agree. It's just the way it is. Pockets are to dresses what salt is to watermelon: a slice of watermelon is delightful on its own, but sprinkle a little salt on that bad boy and bam! You've got a reason for celebration. I love a sturdy, strong-enough-to-hold-my-phone pocket, but in a pinch, even a flimsy, decorative afterthought of a pocket is still comforting, should I need a place to stash a handful of Cheez-Its or do something with my hands in an impromptu photo shoot. Summer is the season of dresses, so we've rounded up 18 picks with pockets that you can happily wear all season long.
