Editor's Favorites: Best New Bridesmaid Dresses for Fall 2012

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.

We're seeing more and more patterned bridesmaid dresses on the runway and this chiffon frock, with its classic polka dots, will never go out of style. Pair it with bright heels for a shot of color.
