Fancy Trends: A Marriage of Function and Fashion

Men have it easy, there is never a doubt that their pants or other clothing for that matter are going to come equip with pockets. This functional fashion statement has now made its way to women’s fashion. Now I know this is not the first season we’ve seen pockets in more feminine fashion but this seems to be the first season we’re seeing pockets in just about everything.

Take this spring's dresses and skirts from Tulle as an example. Tulle has done an excellent job of adding this functional element to their women’s wear in a less obvious fashion. Here we find pockets hidden along seam lines almost invisible to the un-trained eye.

Even Cheap Monday is getting in on the action this year with more of a cargo appearance to their take on pockets. These pockets become a statement piece placed prominently on the front of the garment.

So when your shopping for new staples for your Spring wardrobe consider adding a few more pockets to your life.
