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.

Alvina Valenta

The illusion neckline and deep-kohl color make this knee-length bridesmaid dress also very cocktail-party-worthy. Which is a good thing because, really, who doesn't need another LBD?
