A one-and-done outfit is always a win, at least in our opinion. Throw it on and you’re out the door? What could possibly be better than that? We’ll tell you. Although dresses are, of course, the original one-and-done wardrobe staple, the Holy Grail lies in one little extra detail: pockets. Dresses with pockets are the ultimate score and frankly, we’re not totally sure why most dresses don’t have them.

We’ve put together a list of our favorite dresses with pockets below. From maxis to minis, shirt dresses to sleeveless dresses, plus solids and stripes and patterns galore, we took care of trying to find dresses that look great, can be dressed up or down, and include those elusive pockets.
