The Great Pocket Caper: Why Women's Clothes Still Don't Have Pockets (and How Bags Became Our Heroes)

Have you ever lost your phone or wallet because your jeans pockets are the size of a matchbox? We've all been there. This blog perfectly captures the frustration of the fashion industry's seemingly eternal war on women's pockets.

While the lack of pockets might seem like a minor inconvenience, it's actually a reflection of a deeper issue: the historical expectation that women prioritize aesthetics over practicality.

A History of Sacrificing Function for Form

From the disappearance of convenient "pockets" (pouches worn around the waist) in the 18th century to Christian Dior's infamous 1954 quote, "Men have pockets to keep things in, women for decoration," Fashion has historically prioritized aesthetics over practicality for women, forcing them to choose between style and functionality.

The Rise of the Bag: Necessity Becomes Fashion

But here's the twist: Enter the bag. What started as a necessity for women who lacked proper pockets in their clothing has evolved into a fashion statement in its own right. The handbag (or purse, tote, backpack – you name it!) has become a woman's trusted companion, carrying not just essentials but also reflecting her personality and style.
