Presenting: The Dresses and Sandals With the Best Nordstrom Reviews

I'm an equal opportunist when it comes to retailers. Recently, I've done stories on my favorite finds from & Other Stories, the best celeb-approved sneakers on Amazon, and Meghan Markle's sold-out Topshop blouse. That said, however adventurous I get with my online shopping, I always revert to an old favorite: Nordstrom. Why? For starters, I find the reviews to be extremely helpful when deciding what to buy.

Since spring is upon us, I decided to round up my favorite dresses and sandals with stellar Nordstrom reviews. Just one of the dresses, for instance, has already racked up an impressive 2265 five-star reviews, while one pair of sandals has over 5000 five-star reviews. Shop these tried-and-true pieces below, and hear what customers have to say before you take the plunge.

What reviewers are saying: "Such a cute print! But the cut is really the star here. Sexy dress. Skims the body lightly. The straps of the dress are adjustable just like bra straps and I can still wear my black bra undetected under the straps which is a huge plus."

Credentials: 9 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Love this dress. Very flattering in the waist. I just had a baby and the gathering in the waist made me feel like it held in my stomach more. The color is super vibrant and cute. Such a unique dress"

What editors are saying: "I'm obsessed with these strappy flat sandals, which are very on-trend yet super easy to wear. I'm 5'10" so I live in flats, and these are my favorites right now."

What reviews are saying: "Bang for your buck! This affordable dress is a favorite new piece to my year round wardrobe.

Credentials: 2265 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Love this dress. I bought it for a trip to Aruba and I love that it can be casual with sandals or dressed up with heels and earrings. I'm usually a size 8 or 10 (5'6, 145 lbs) and ordered a size medium. It hugs the curves nicely (without showing too much) and the bottom of the dress elongates my legs. It fits perfect."

Credentials: 35 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Initially bought this just to try, and fell in love with this dress! The leg slit catches your eye. Love the high neckline, but has a cute back detail as well. Would definitely recommend!"

Credentials: 962 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "I didn't want to spend a ton of money for the leather version of these shoes so I got these instead. I love the color and they are so comfortable to wear and go with everything."

Credentials: 87 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "This dress is beautiful and classy AND it has deep pockets! What a pleasant surprise. I got many compliments on it." 

Credentials: 578 five-reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Bought this dress for a wedding—comfortable and elegant at the same time."

Credentials: 95 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Quality and workmanship is durable. The sole is hard as you can see from the pictures, but I've walked all day in them and my feet were never sore. The ONLY con is if you were to run across some rain, your foot easily slides in the sandal, but I don't take points off because it really is just that great!"

Credentials: 10 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "This dress is amazing! It fit perfect, it hugged my curves in the right places and flared where necessary. The material is beautiful."

Credentials: 526 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "This dress is perfect for work! I love the material and weight. I still wear a slip underneath just in case. I am 5'7'' and would say it is the perfect length but anyone taller might find this to be too short for the office."

Credentials: 447 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "I am absolutely in love with these shoes! I ordered them for work during which I am standing for long periods of time. They didn't hurt my feet at all and made me feel loads taller."

Credentials: 358 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Very nice summer dress. Can be casual or dressed up. I ended up getting this in three different colors (red, purple and black) since it's so versatile."

Credentials: 1074 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "A maxi dress is always a must. I add to my collection with a new color every year. They’re so perfect for the summer! They’re light and flowy so they help you stay cool while keeping some sun off you."

Credentials: 290 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Very flattering dress. Have in 2 colors. Can dress it up elegantly and make it work but it is more a casual feel. Lined. Beautiful neckline."

Credentials: 126 five-star reviews

What reviewers are saying: "Fits true to size. Has a cushioned sole and is comfortable. Fits my normal width foot. Would be too wide for a narrow foot. The back strap has room and doesn't fit too tightly."
