The Bridesmaid Dress — The goddess draping, the dusty jewel tones, the modest lengths — there's something about a bridesmaid dress that screams I'm part of the wedding party even long after the ceremonies are long over. To combat it, wear the dress with edgy, modern, on-trend pieces, like cap-toed, pointed pumps, a dark, smoky eye, and a structured blazer that the bride would have never let you wear on her big day.
