Here’s a thought: A bridesmaid outfit you’ll actually want to wear again. We know, we know—you’ve heard that promise countless times, only to be stuck drowning in layers of tulle in an, ahem, unique color that you can hardly convince yourself to wear to the wedding, let alone a second (or third) time. But trust us when we say we’ve actually found The One. Enter: the bridesmaid jumpsuit.
Last year, designers like J.Crew, Rivini, Viktor & Rolf and Temperley Bridal debuted bridal jumpsuits in dreamy laces and silks. Since then, the silhouette has been slowly making its way down the aisle and onto the wedding party. And if the photo above is any indication, they’re fun to wear! Scroll down for some of our favorite bridesmaid-ready jumpsuits.
A wide-leg jumpsuit is a great alternative if you’re scared to make the leap. From many angles, these look just like dresses. Left: Alfred Angelo (available in 61 colors), $99-$179; alfredangelo.com. Right: Lovers + Friends, $178; dailylook.com.
