Bridesmaid Dress Redux:
Holiday Parties

Somewhere in your rack of once-worn bridesmaids dresses is an ensemble just itching to party this holiday season. From full-length to cocktail, formal to relaxed, we re-styled a variety of dresses for a range of festive events. Take this bridesmaid dress by Alfred Sung, for example—the cap sleeves are conservative enough for an office holiday party, while the vibrant fuchsia hue keeps the look feeling fun, especially when set against understated gray and black accessories. So what if you tipsily admit to sometimes napping in the supply closet? At least you'll look professional. —Phillip B. Crook
