A new way to wear pockets

Think you know everything there is to know about pockets? Think again.

You've seen them on the backs of jeans, the sides of cargo shorts and the fronts of t-shirts. Recently, we've even started seeing them on dresses. But have you ever seen a sideways center pocket? If you're interested in seeing what this unique fashion statement looks like, have a gander at the dress that Patty Hou wore when she arrived to announce the nominees of The 22nd Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan.

The Taiwanese star opted to wear a black and white Yves St. Laurent dress with a very noticeable detail - a single pocket sitting just above a slightly off-center slit. Of course, that wasn't the only source of the dress' glamor and intrigue: It also sported a unique neckline that showed off Patty's shoulders while still covering her d├ęcolletage. She paired it with some strappy sandals, bright red lipstick and a big, glittering cocktail ring.

While not as noticeable, many prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses and even some wedding dresses are now sporting hidden or subtle pockets. What a great idea!
