Pocket Revolution

Ten or so years ago, the New York Times raved about a dress from a mail order outfit specializing in travel wear. I looked over the catalogue and ordered a lightweight synthetic skirt to carry me through a city summer. A concealed zippered pocket turned out to be the skirt’s most useful feature.

Every season more manufacturers include secure storage in their designs. Being able to slip a card and a key key into a zippered pocket is liberating. I don’t have to worry about losing my side bag; I can sit, catnap, and exercise without worrying about gravity; and I can scoot out of the house bareback for short trips.
