Maxi dresses are one of the first things we add to our carts online when shopping for summer and spring attire. They look great with jean jackets in the spring and on their own once the summer weather hits.

Wearing a maxi dress can make us feel confident and it's such an easy outfit to put together. Dress it up with a pair of heels or wear your favourite sandals or sneakers.

Fill your closet with different easy breezy maxi dresses this year. They are multipurpose, lightweight and can be worn at any event.

Promising reviews

This gorgeous maxi dress has earned a 4-star rating with more than 800 reviews from Nordstrom shoppers, who have called it the "the perfect vacation dress."

"Flattering - Hides a Multitude of Sins. I purchased this dress as a birthday gift for my daughter. She is 5.9 and weighs 200. She looks stunning, it fits and is flattering to the body. She is busty and it shows a little cleavage but it is still nice. The length is just right and she can dress it up or down. I purchased in the dark blue and the royal blue. Gorgeous! And a perfect buy for day to night dressing in California," one happy customer wrote.

"Comfortable and curve flattering! Great maxi dress for spring or summer! Fits wonderfully and is great for busty ladies. The material is acceptable for a casual/hang out dress, but definitely not for formal events, in my opinion. It’s too thin and basic for a nice occasion. I recommend sizing up if you prefer your maxi dresses to be loose on the mid-section and bum. The material clings," another customer wrote in their review.

"Perfect vacation dress! I LOVE this dress! I ordered the petite for the length and am so happy I did. The fabric is super soft and comfortable. I carry my weight in my middle : ( unfortunately but the empire waist line was perfect. Flowed nicely below so it did not cling to me. LOVE this dress! Can't wait to wear it on my upcoming vacations," wrote another Nordstrom shopper.

"So pretty! I love it ! Very fitting on the top then long and flowing! Very figure flattering! I am 5 ‘6 and 173 I got the large and xtra large the large fit perfect! Can’t wait to wear this out! I love Lovepella dresses," another happy customer wrote.

Another customer warned that the dress is still "too long" despite having petite sizes.

"Cute but still too long. It's comfortable and cute, but I got it in a petite and it still drags on the floor. The average size of American women is 5'4, so I don't know who these are being made for. I'm keeping it, I just have to lift it up when I walk because it's just a little too long (I am 5'4). Not sure whose idea of "petite" this is," the customer wrote in their review.
