Embellishments may be glamorous and cutouts are bold, but no detail makes a dress more appealing than pockets. Think about it: the fact that a dress has pockets is likely the first thing you mention when you get a compliment about a dress — or it's a sweet bonus you can't help but mention. That's why Old Navy has doubled down this season, delivering more pocketed minis, midis, and maxis than ever. In fact, they've added double the amount of previous years after survey results showed that 71 percent of women say discovering that a new dress has pockets is an instant mood booster. We believe it.

The functionality of a pocket can't be beaten, particularly the perfectly placed kind like a slim slit to hold your ID and lip gloss during special events, deeper pouches for carrying your day-to-day essentials, and handy patches to contain your phone for quick access.

The ultimate MVP detail takes a dress from "cute" to "I've got to have it" in seconds flat. So, as you plot new purchases for the sunny season ahead, scroll to discover 16 versatile dresses with pockets for all occasions, from casual to event-worthy. And if you live near a participating Old Navy store*, head in from 12 pm to 4 pm on Saturday, April 1 for Pockets of Joy Day: You'll find tokens hidden in select pockets of new spring dresses that can be redeemed for a $20 gift card.
