Updated ·3-min read

Mother's Day is right around the corner (May 14, FYI!) and Nordstrom Rack has the perfect affordable gift idea for the stylish mom in your life — a flattering, easy-to-wear maxi dress for a great price. The highly rated Lovestitch Gauze Maxi Dress was recently added to the clearance section, and it's up to 65% off just in time for summer. Right now, you can scoop up this pretty little number for as little as just $30 (down from $88), so grab one in Mom's favorite color. And at these prices, score one for yourself while you're at it.

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 breaks the mold. Says a fan: "It’s a gorgeous, comfortable, flattering dress for any body shape."

This breezy frock is made with a lightweight gauze material that will keep Mom cool on those hot and humid summer days, but makes for a comfy, sleek option indoors come fall. Its relaxed fit provides ultimate comfort and flatters all shapes and sizes, and there are 15 colors to choose from, including classic neutrals, eye-catching brights and pretty pastels.

But that’s not all — the V-neck dress even has adjustable spaghetti straps and pockets. And when a nip creeps into the evening air, this dress will look amazing with a leather or denim jacket.

“Really the perfect dress,” insisted one happy customer.

“It has great pockets, flowing material and it's not shaped like a big old tent!” proclaimed a fan. “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 dress it down with jean jacket and flats. I love the side pockets and how it flows 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.”

The reviewer added: “I received several compliments when I wore the dress. It's a great investment. I have and will continue to recommend this dress to my family and friends.”

At just $30, the gorgeous dress is so popular that customers are coming back to stock up on more than just one color. “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,” admitted one loyal fan.

“I bought five because the comfort was so great,” raved another.

This shopper went all out and got the dress in every shade: “I like this dress so much I bought it in every color.”

It looks like the perfect dress does exist after all.
