I work from home, so my standard everyday outfit is leggings and a tank top. However, when the temperatures start to rise, I’m ready to shed my stretchy pants for something a little breezier, like a casual cotton dress. Dresses can be just as comfortable as spandex, if not more so. However, my everyday look doesn’t have to be overly formal or expensive. You can find some incredibly cute yet comfy casual dresses under $50 at Nordstrom Rack.

Nordstrom Rack’s website even has a section for dresses under $50, and you can filter them by material, length and more. If you’re looking for a simple cotton tank dress or T-shirt dress, you can find one for about $20. However, if you want a dress between T-shirt style and cocktail attire, like a pretty tiered maxi you can wear with flip-flops to lunch or dinner, the retailer has that, too.

Take a look below at seven great casual dresses under $50 at Nordstrom Rack that you can wear pretty much anywhere, anytime.

If we’re being honest with ourselves, this dress lacks shape. However, it doesn’t lack style. The shift-style maxi dress features ruffled straps, a tiered skirt and a crinkled cotton fabric. It’s perfect for days when you feel like wearing a baggy T-shirt and shorts but also want to dress up just a little bit more. (P.S.: It comes in six colors.)

You can dress it up or down.
