Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora at the MTV Movie Awards [Getty]
Shopping for the perfect dress is never an easy feat. Here at Grazia HQ we’ve spotted a nifty little styling trick to transform your get up: dresses with pocket detailing. Rita Ora was spotted in a floor length black Barbara Casasola number and Ellie Goulding sported a white Emporio Armani cut out dress at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend. The key similarity? They both wore theirs with their hands tucked into their pockets.
What do we love about the little pocket detailing? Not just for the fact it makes for excellent red carpet posing but also for the way it channels the sporty trend for this season, it can transform your uptown outfit into a laid back ensemble. It’s not just a style for the red carpet; day-time dresses worn with pockets can make a pretty little frock become more masculine – and as soon as your hands are stuffed in, your vibe changes instantly
Opt for stiff cotton fabrics and structured silhouettes to nail the smart but sporty look. We’ve shopped around to find the best 20 pocket dresses that are available to buy now! Click through the gallery above to get shopping!
