We are all too familiar with that one hopeful phrase: “Don’t worry; you can totally wear it again!” As much as we’d love to believe it, sometimes the idea of wearing that drab bridesmaid dress again sounds like a total myth. Fortunately, Kennedy Blue designed its bridesmaid collection to not only be worn again but with its mix-and-match options, your girls can actually choose a style they’ll like! However, we don’t blame you for doubting wear-again bridesmaid dresses, so we took a variety of Kennedy Blue dresses and re-styled them to create fun summer styles. You would never guess that they once made their way down the aisle!
Wear-again bridesmaid dresses for your casual summer style.
Whether going to work, having happy hour with the girls, or stopping for a much-needed coffee break, creating a casual look is as simple as adding a few extra pieces from your everyday wardrobe. Here are some common myths about re-wearing a bridesmaid dress that we’re here to solve:
Myth #1: A floor-length dress needs to be shortened to be considered a wear-again bridesmaid dress.
Answer: Absolutely not! Try a cropped top on a full-length skirt to create a slimming look! We mimicked the look of a maxi skirt by pairing our full-length Kennedy Blue dresses Olivia in blush (left) and Emma in charcoal (right) with cropped tops that hit at the natural waist. The tied-up, vintage t-shirt and floral, cropped tank top add casual and summery elements to what was once a very formal bridesmaid dress. Adding a chunky and vibrant accent necklace will also create the perfect pop of color for a fun and girly look.
Myth #2: If the bridesmaid dress isn’t your style, you can’t magically turn it to something you’ll want to wear again.
Answer: But yet, you can! If a dress doesn’t fit your personal style, add pieces that reflect who you are as a person and make it totally your own. We paired Chloe in coral (left) with a light blue button-up and cowboy-like boots for a sweet and charming girl-next-door type of feel. For a more hipster, down-to-earth vibe, Charlotte in navy (right) was paired with a bold Aztec-patterned scarf, beaded headband, and TOMS wedges.
Myth #3: Bridesmaid dresses can only be worn again for other formal events.
Answer: So not true! Paired with everyday pieces such as a good statement necklace and denim, you create a summer style that’s unique and casual. By pairing Violet in peacock (left) with a classic denim jacket, or Hannah in navy (right) with a trendy denim vest, you’re perfectly prepared for a low-key lunch date or a full day of door-to-door shopping!
