Oversized pockets are finally getting the love they deserve

Let’s be real: Any item of clothing that has pockets is a godsend. Especially if the piece has oversized cargo pockets.

Model Bella Hadid was recently spotted in Paris wearing an outfit with nine pockets in total, according to Nylon. We don’t know what she’s keeping in her vest and pants, but she practically doesn’t need a bag to hold her essentials.

Designers like Matthew Adams Dolan and Claudia Li utilized oversized pockets during New York Fashion Week holiday 2019 last year, making it the standout trend of the season. Glamour also cited the resurgence of cargo pockets in 2019. It’s timely since we need someplace to put our stuff in while carrying our micro mini bags.
