Nordstrom’s selection of clothing and accessories is always on point, but certain items stand head and shoulders above the rest. Whether it’s a royal-approved brand like Madewell or a viral bodycon dress, you can bet you’ll find them included in the department store’s stellar fashion selection.

The latest item making waves among Nordstrom shoppers is the Loveappella Maxi Dress, which happens to be an updated version of their bestselling V-Neck Jersey Maxi Dress. Available in four colours and retailing for $68, it’s one style that you’ll want to add to your rotation of summer-ready styles.

While it maintains the maxi length and flowing silhouette, the new Loveappella Maxi Dress features a simplified V-neckline and spaghetti straps rather than wide straps. It’s also ditched the empire waistline for a more streamlined look. Made from a breathable stretch knit, it’s a great choice for soaring summer temperatures.

It’s available in sizes X-Small to X-Large in both regular and petite cuts, and four versatile shades. According to the item’s product description it runs large, so if you find yourself between sizes, your best bet will be to order one size down.

What shoppers are saying

According to Nordstrom shoppers, the Loveappella Maxi Dress lives up to its predecessor, and has already earned a 4.4-star rating from more than 350 customer reviews.

“I highly recommend this dress since it is a very comfortable breathable material and falls nicely on the body. It isn't too clingy and the fabric feels nice. Very flattering fit and great dress! I'm stocking up on this dress for summer,” one reviewer wrote.

Shoppers have also praised this dress for its two lengths, which offers an ideal fit even on shorter frames.

“I am 4'11" and the petite fit perfectly on me! Hugged and flowed through all the right areas. I want one in every colour,” reads one review.

Some shoppers have found the dress to be on the heavy side, so it's definitely something an important consideration if you prefer a lighter weight fabric for your clothing.

“I purchased this dress in black for a vacation to the desert. It is everything and more than I'd hoped it to be! It does feel a little ‘heavy’ towards the bottom as other reviewers stated, but I did not have any issues with it,” noted one reviewer.


If you’re looking to mix things up this summer, the Loveappella Maxi Dress is a great choice for a versatile piece that you can easily wear on repeat. Throw it on under a denim jacket for day, or with a pair of heels for a night out.

Shoppers have noted that it is on the heavy side (which is great for avoiding see-through situations!), so if you prefer something lighter-weight, you may just want to stick with the brand’s original V-Neck Jersey Maxi Dress.
