So, you have to buy a bridesmaid dress for a friend's upcoming wedding? Relax. We know things can be tricky right now, especially with so many weddings being postponed due to COVID-19, so you're probably hesitant to give in and splurge on something you really love. What if, in the end, the show does not go on? (At least not this year, anyway.)

That's why we want to present you with these 16 dress labels that make jumpsuits, maxis, and knee-length numbers that go far beyond a wedding. You'll rewear the looks here for years to come, whether it's on a romantic date or even for another wedding down the line. Most of the brands here ring in around $200-$300 for a well-made, wear-anywhere dress, and a handful of them keep sustainability practices in mind, which is hugely important to us.

Ahead, we've rounded up some of our go-tos for you to explore and also included descriptions of the collections, so you know if they are in keeping with your unique taste. Bonus: shop our favorite selection from each — trust us, you're in good hands.
