Bridesmaid dresses get a bad rap (think: poufy taffeta get-ups that will never see the light of day again), but it doesn't have to be that way. At New York Bridal Fashion Week, designers debuted versatile, re-wearable styles. We've rounded up our favorites, so do your bridesmaids a favor and choose a dress that's stylish enough to be worn again.
