We'll be blunt: If you buy only one dress this season, let it be the Grecerelle maxi at Amazon — it's $26 and some colors are even less.
This ridiculously popular frock has amassed over 29,000 five-star ratings, and there's something for everyone. It comes in 45 different colors, from a bright sky blue and classic black to an array of fresh floral prints. Best of all, this is the kind of dress you can wear year-round — with sandals or boots.
And Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? No worries; you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here.
The Grecerelle maxi is one of those easy-breezy dresses you can just throw on for a low-key weekend look. Made of super-soft, comfy rayon and spandex, it features a V-neckline and (in a welcome touch) has pockets too. To give it a slightly sexy look, it has a low-cut back and side slits. You can style it with booties and a crossbody satchel or dress it up with heels or tall boots.

“The fit was perfect — flowy, loose but fits perfectly," said one five-star reviewer. "I ordered three for lounging around the house, but they are way too nice for around the house. I do stay in the dress after I get home — so comfortable. The colors are rich and the dresses are soft. I love, love, love these dresses!!”
Size and fit
“I LOVE this dress!" gushed another big fan. "After seeing a blogger post about it on Instagram, I decided to give it a try! I’m 5’7” and135 pounds with a growing baby bump, and I LOVE how the small fits me! It’s a little shorter than other maxis that I own, but the slits on the sides make that not a big deal. I actually like that it shows off my shoes! The fabric is super comfy and stretchy so I plan to get a lot of wear out of this dress as the bump grows! I highly recommend ordering one!”
Great for petites
“I got the extra-small because of my height and because everyone said the dress was flowy," said this diminutive shopper. "It fit perfectly! The bottom hovers the ground with sandals. If I had a smaller butt or chest it would probably drag a little. It’s not too clingy, but it did fall right over my curves, which I love because it doesn’t make my short self look ‘boxy.’ It’s thick enough so you cannot see your bra through it but thin enough to wear on a hot day.”
This shopper got herself a pleasant surprise: “Awesome dress! After giving birth to my daughter I have felt very self-conscious about my ‘mom body’. However, this dress is so comfortable and very flattering. I was scared that because it's a loose-fitting dress I would look like I was wearing a muumuu. I looked awesome and actually felt pretty again! Will be buying more in other colors!
Trends may come and go, but we know one thing for certain: when it comes to summer fashion, you can never go wrong with a maxi dress - and for good reason. Summer maxi dresses are often fitted with a more breathable silhouette, so you can navigate even the hottest temperatures of the season in style. From nap dresses and body-hugging coverups to sundresses and sleeveless frocks, maxi dresses give the illusion of a well-put-together outfit, all while requiring little to no effort at all.
While the start of a new season is always a popular time to stock up on dresses, there's something about the demand for the garment during summer that's particularly unhinged. Long dresses, short dresses, nap dresses, going-out dresses — they are flying off the shelves faster than we're flying outside. And though there are plenty of trending styles to choose from these days, there's one kind of dress that will never go out of style: an affordable one. And that's where good ol' Nordstrom Rack has

After having kids, the standards for a clean house are inevitably lowered. Pre-kids, maybe you liked pristine counters, preferred immediately putting away clean clothes, and enjoyed non-cluttered surfaces and sparkling floors. But now that you live with little mess-makers, the littlest things can make you happy. Like walking across the living room without stepping on […]
