It's every bridesmaid's worst nightmare (except for maybe the multitude of terrors in Bridesmaids): buying a bridesmaids dress that you know you'll never wear again. Maybe it's too formal. Maybe it's too small. Maybe it's too ugly. So when a dress comes along that you actually like, the trick is then knowing how best to re-wear the look in a way that's reflective of your non-maid style. Blogger Tanesha Awasthi, of Girl With Curves, wore an eggplant chiffon Bari Jay Bridesmaids maxi dress to her sister's wedding last summer. With the addition of a DKNY blazer, a Forever 21 scarf, and Steve Madden flats, Awasthi took her dress from summer wedding to summer brunch—and doesn't she look great?!
