Pretty or Practical?
Girls’ clothing is often designed more for visual appeal than for utility - and that affects how girls play, move, and navigate daily life.
The vast majority of girls’ clothing (and women’s clothing too) is devoid of pockets. Rather than thinking of girls as kids in need of kids’ clothing, many designers think of girls as mini-fashionistas in bubble skirts, big sunglasses, and heeled sandals that the vast majority of kids on the playground would never wear (or at least not as one outfit all at once while at the playground).
Pockets are not just useful - they are a means of encouraging self-sufficiency and independence. A child with pockets does not have to rely constantly on a parent to keep things safe - just as a century ago, women without pockets used to have to rely on their male companions to hold their money. Pockets give children a small degree of autonomy as they begin to play on their own without their parents' constant oversight.
At Princess Awesome, we’re committed to making dresses with pockets - because we can, because they’re useful, and because girls deserve them.
