Displaying attributes in a drop-down menu

We have a bedding website and have our normal categories on the top nav bar, but we are wanting to use a couple of “shop by” options for customers so that we are not vague in our categories.  We are afraid of creating duplicate content, as we were hit pretty bad by the Panda update so my question is this:

Is it ok to create categories such as “shop by style” or “shop by color” if they are already set up as attributes and show as layered navigation on the category pages, or will this get us into trouble with duplicate content?  Ideally, it would be nice to display the attributes so that we don’t have to go back to all of our products and add them to the different categories we have to create.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello
Yes, there is a solution with no content duplicating.
You can find out more about how to control layered navigation here:
