The Look for Less: Hot Pockets

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld once said the one thing that's missing when you're wearing your birthday suit is a place to put you hands. While we don't advise wearing nothing but a belt with pockets (Jerry's solution), we do dig pockets on frocks.

Pockets provide a place to put your idle hands—maybe even some cash or a key—and they're cropping up in the most unlikely of places these days. We've seen them on evening gowns, day dresses, jumpers, rompers, and babydoll tops.

We love Derek Lam's interpretation of this trend.

The nice thing about that tunic is that you can layer it. the forever 21 model is very cute and suspiciously similar to the runway version!
