The Best Women’s Clothes with Pockets

It’s a frustrating mystery as to why most clothing designed for women doesn’t include pockets—or, even worse, has a fake pocket (we’re looking at you, women’s jeans). Fortunately, we’ve found 10 great pieces of women’s clothes with pockets that are big enough to be useful.

United by Blue Responsible Flannel Dress

United by Blue’s dress has both pockets and a conscience. It’s made from organic cotton, recycled polyester, and organic dye, and the buttons are made from corozo (a renewable and sustainable nut). The dress has a drawstring at the waist to create a custom fit, plus a chest pocket and two large hip pockets.

Tasc Uptown Ultra High Rise Pocket Legging

Tasc Uptown Ultra High Rise Pocket Leggings

Tasc’s Uptown Ultra High Rise Pocket Leggings have a plethora of pockets. There are two large side pockets and a hidden stash pocket in the waistband that’s large enough to hold a phone. Made from a silky smooth, stretchy fabric, these pants won’t sag or fall down during your workout.

Title Nine Manresa Joggers

Made from an ultra-soft and cozy terry fabric, Title Nine’s Manresa Joggers are the perfect pants to wear on a long flight. They have plenty of pockets, including two front handwarmer pockets (one with a secret internal mesh pocket for valuables) and two in the back.

Orvis Signature Merino Wool Cardigan

Orvis’ Signature Merino Wool Cardigan is the ultimate plane layer. The merino wool will keep you warm but won’t retain odors or sweat, and the cardigan design looks much more pulled-together than a sweatshirt. This versatile layer works over a dress or a shirt and has two side pockets that will hold anything you need as you pass through security.

SCOTTeVEST Margaux Cargaux Travel Pants

Women’s cargo pants with pockets? That’s easy to find. Women’s cargo pants that are thoughtfully designed? That’s harder to find, but SCOTTeVEST has achieved it with its Margaux Cargaux Travel Pants. These pants have 11 pickpocket-proof pockets in different sizes that can store your phone, camera, wallet, sunglasses, and more. These pants can quickly convert into capris using the attached ankle ties.

Title Nine Mad Dash Reversible Running Tights

Carry everything you need on your run in Title Nine’s Mad Dash Reversible Running Tights, which have two pockets on the side that are large enough to store your phone. A waist stash pocket securely holds your keys or energy gel. These are the perfect leggings with pockets for travel since they reverse from a fun print on one side to a solid side, so it’s like packing two pairs in one.

Columbia’s cozy Canyon Point Sherpa Pullover is great to layer under a jacket on freezing days or to wear alone during milder weather. Zippered hand pockets give you a secure place to hold your valuables.
