Most people *cough* mainly boys *cough* don’t understand the fashion difficulties girls go through.

Fashion is everything now a days for most teenage girls. But many find a common problem with the choice between style and comfort. Pockets on girls’ pants are either extremely small or just completely non existent. How are we supposed to manage our lives? Many agree that the struggle is real.

Madeline Barros (‘16) shared her story of a traumatizing loss because of the pocket dilemma,

“Once when I went ice skating, I didn’t have any pockets so I had to hold my phone and I dropped it on the ice.”

Of course no one enjoys a broken IPhone, but believe it or not, it can get worse. Sarah Burbridge (‘16) filled us in on a time when her pockets prevented her from smuggling food.

“One time I couldn’t sneak McDonald’s in my pockets into a movie theater.”

Luckily, she also has a wonderful solution to the problem.

“I personally don’t care if girl pockets are bigger because that’s what boyfriends are for.”

Well Sarah, unfortunately, not everyone has that luxury.

Are these types of pockets a gift from God or a curse from the Devil? Mackenzie Lusich (‘17) gave some insight on the possible reason pockets are made like this.

“Girls want their pants to be really really tight, so they don’t want their pockets to make it look bigger,” she says.

Vivian Sweha (‘16) believes style of pockets is important.

“Sometimes pants have like huge pockets and they kind of like stick out and it’s kind of ugly.”

With all these ideas, the Talon couldn’t help but wonder, Would girls carry more things in their pockets if there was more room? Makenna Chapman (’17)  is content with the way pockets are now.

“I don’t wish girl pockets were bigger because then my pants would look frumpy.”

Vivian  agreed, adding, “even if my pockets were bigger I probably wouldn’t carry anything in them, I’d probably still be a mess.”

Akemi Alden (’16)  took a different side and feels that bigger pockets would be better.

“I’d probably carry more money or candy or something if the pockets were bigger.”

Pockets are a place to store things, but will they last? Will the future cause pockets to become non-existent on any type of pants?  How will the next generation survive?
