The 13 Highest Reviewed Nordstrom Rack Dresses

·19 min read

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're 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 us covered.

Nordstrom Rack is a reliable go-to for some of our favorite brands (think discounts on Topshop, Madewell, Cinq à Sept, and more). So it comes as no surprise that the internet's savviest shoppers gravitate toward its abundance of stylish, well-priced offerings. And, lucky for us, they also leave behind reviews to help the rest of us decide what is (and isn't) worth our $$. We've scoured Nordstrom Rack's top-rated frocks and plucked out the crowd-pleasers you need on your radar (and in your closet). The best part? True to Nordstrom Rack form, they're all on sale, all the time.
