All of us love putting our hands into our pockets and cocking our arms back. It’s the perfect picture pose (arms always look skinny while in this stance) and it gives a sense of self-assurance (our pockets are like our security blanket). Pockets are also very easy to change-up, jazz-up, or doll-up. Patch pockets in the shape of hearts that are top applied onto a garment (using leather!) or pockets that are shirred at the bottom add the right amount of panache to any piece of clothing. My favorite way to jazz-up pockets lately is to make them slouchy at the top. It adds coolness to a garment, like a James Dean or a Marlon Brando type of look (STELLLAAAA!!) Pockets like this would look fabulous on a Renfrew or Sorbetto top, don’t you think? Although the drape at the center and top of the pocket is better achieved using a knit, that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work well on a woven too.
