A seasonless staple

With spring and summer on the way, you may think, "This dress will be perfect for the warmer weather!"

Well, guess what? Layer a sweater, oversized cardigan, or blazer overtop and a pair of black or patterned tights underneath. You can easily style this piece through the colder months as well.

Accessorize the Ruched Maxi Dress's draped elegant cowl neck with a necklace, and adjust the spaghetti straps to customize the bodice's fit.

Speaking of fit, Nordstrom says this piece fits true to size and comes in sizes XXS (OO) to XXL (18).

Seamless style

A polyester and spandex blend, this Maxi Dress provides a smooth and flattering fit; the rippled ruching accentuates the waist and décolletage.

Although the solid black is a great option to reach for daily, the purple dahlia colour packs a spring-y punch.

Purple is a fabulous alternative when you want to add a pop to your look or plan on making a bright and cheery entrance to an event.

This Easter egg hue is so in season.
