Whether you love these summer wardrobe staples or shy away in favor of something less revealing, we have a style you're sure to swear by — and for a great price.

It's currently just $30 at Nordstrom Rack (that's 65% off!) in over a dozen colors.

If you don't want to spend a ton on flowy dresses this summer, you don't have to. While some maxis cost upwards of $200, this gem at Nordstrom Rack is marked down to just $30 — a steal for such a flattering and comfy piece that you'll wear on repeat all season long. It would also make a great Mother's Day gift for all the women in your life.

Let's be real: Very few clothing items can be described as versatile. If it's stylish, it's probably not practical. And if it's sensible, it's most likely the opposite of fashionable. Well, this dress from Lovestitch breaks the mold.

The breezy frock is made with a lightweight gauze that will keep you cool on hot, humid summer days (read: it won't cling to your body). Its relaxed fit keeps things comfortable and flatters all shapes and sizes.

But that’s not all — the V-neck dress has adjustable spaghetti straps and pockets. Style it with strappy sandals and a denim jacket or throw it over a bathing suit and turn it into a beach cover-up. This may be why one happy shopper exclaimed that it's "really the perfect dress!" It's available in sizes up to 2X and comes in 14 sizzling colors, from classics like black, navy and white to bright pink and yellow.

Nearly 1,700 Nordstrom Rack customers rave about how comfy this throw-on-and-go dress is, especially during hot summer days. In fact, many of them are coming back to the Lovestitch Gauze Maxi Dress to stock up on multiple colors.

"Originally bought three and, after wearing them each in the span of a few weeks, I quickly saw this was going to be a summer staple, so I bought four more ... one for every day of the week," said one loyal fan. "I like this dress so much I bought it in every color."

"It has great pockets, flowing material and it's not shaped like a big old tent!" proclaimed another happy shopper. "Whoever designed this knew something about the female body shape. The dress is flowing, but actually hangs on the body very nicely — it has a shape to it."

One five-star reviewer pretty much summed it up: "I love the versatility of this dress. You can dress it up with heels or down with flats. I love the side pockets and how they flow when you walk. The dress is so comfortable and stylish, and it wears very nicely. The fabric is light but durable and easy to care for."

Some Nordstrom Rack shoppers caution that the maxi is extremely long, a potential issue for buyers on the shorter side. "I love this comfortable, flowy dress. My only complaint is that it was made for tall people," said one reviewer. "I am 5-foot-6, and even with the straps adjusted all the way, I trip on the hem. I will need to have it hemmed. Other than that, I love it!" Another customer agreed, adding, "They should consider selling petite sizes for us shorter gals."

Several reviewers mention that the sides of the dress poof out near the pockets. "Love the pockets, even though they do add a bit of visual mass to my hip area," said a final fan. "It doesn't bother me and I still think it's incredibly flattering. I expect to live in this dress all summer."

Whether you're heading to brunch or lounging around the house, this laid-back piece has you covered. "I wore three of these all summer feeling like Mrs. Roper — effortlessly cool Coastal Grandma!" exclaimed a fan.
