Wedding season is upon us—but we all know that buying a dress for a wedding isn't the easiest. Whether you're going to a party at a decked-out barn in the middle of nowhere or a traditional, white-napkin venue, finding the perfect frock for someone else's nuptials can be the opposite of fun; especially when you have to drop major cash on something that you'll probably never wear again.
So, we've decided to take a stand against the whole one-and-done dress thing: The key to happiness here is finding a piece that actually can be worn again, whether you dress it down for work or play it up for a party. Click through for our picks.
