Let’s talk about pockets - an essential Emily and Fin feature.
It wasn’t until dress trends embraced slim skirts and tiny waists in the late 1800s that sewn-in pockets became fashionable. From about 1650 to the end of the 19th century, tie-on pockets, made with any fabric from simple linen to ornately embroidered silk, were commonly used by women. These large pear-shaped pockets featured a vertical opening and were worn, either singly or in pairs, tied around the waist and concealed beneath petticoats. Just like today, pockets were used to carry all sorts of useful everyday objects.
Highly-functional and practical yet super stylish, Emily and Fin skirts, dresses, trousers and jumpsuits have always included pockets and always will. Not any old pockets, whether concealed for a sleek silhouette or boldly on display, ours are deep and generous enough to fit the items you want to carry so you can grab your phone, keys, lippy… and just go. We consider pockets an essential design requirement, combining both beauty and function, and our customers are always telling us how much they love them too!
