Closet Remix: 7 Actually Cute Ways To Re-Wear A Bridesmaid Dress

by krismkoch

Let’s face it: Even if it is actually not that bad, or pretty cute (like the dresses for my wedding were, right my lovely bridesmaids?), once you were it in a wedding as a bridesmaid, you really aren’t going to wear it again. Like if you wear it to another wedding, you’re going to feel like a bridesmaid and run the risk of someone else having been at the other wedding and recognizing it, making you feel even more like a bridesmaid. And even if you can be certain there’s absolutely no overlap, it’s hard to shake the frump factor of a bridesmaid dress, no matter how unfrumpy the dress is in reality. It’s just got that stigma attached. But that $300+ dress doesn’t have to be a total waste of money (as long as it’s not completely unfortunately looking (in which case, you’re pretty much just screwed)). With the right styling and maybe a little help from your tailor, I swear you can wear that bridesmaid dress again without anyone even knowing.

1. Layer a long vest over
