Why should a brides­maid’s dress be some­thing you only wear once? Wear these high-style pieces again and again

The days of ruf­fled pas­tel num­bers are long gone—so why should a brides­maid’s dress be some­thing you only wear once? These high-style pieces are worth wear­ing again and again

J crew

This oh-so-cool New York brand has been cred­ited with ush­er­ing out the out­dated brides­maid’s dresses of the past to make way for a youth­ful, glam­orous and quirky ap­proach. As the com­pany’s bridal line grows, it’s mov­ing fur­ther away from tra­di­tional gowns, opt­ing in­stead for trendy skir­tand-top com­bi­na­tions and ruf­fled oneshoul­der dresses in all the colours of the rain­bow. The ma­jor­ity of J Crew’s brides­maid dress de­signs cover the knee, but that’s where the sim­i­lar­i­ties end. The floor-length ging­ham num­bers are the ideal op­tion for a wed­ding in Provence, while jewel-hued cock­tail dresses are best suited to a city event in Hong Kong or New York. The beauty of all these pieces? They’re eas­ily re-worn as ca­sual sep­a­rates, or to an­other glam­orous sum­mer event. jcrew.com/wed­ding
