25 Black Dresses I Plan On Living In Once Summer's Over

Sometimes, you just really can't be bothered with color, and I don't blame you. As someone who tends to gravitate toward all the fanciful frills that trends provide, seeking out reliable all-black pieces is not something I'm accustomed to. However, now that we are in the midst of a pandemic, my wardrobe priorities have shifted away from impractical trends and toward a wardrobe that is actually wearable. For me, that starts with a solid black dress. 

This fall, no matter what my social life may look like, I plan on investing in dresses that I can wear and repeat without batting an eye. I went ahead and shopped out the 25 black dresses I am eyeing for fall including everything from timeless turtleneck styles to one or two (or three) cutout dresses because I can't just change who I am overnight, okay?! Either way, the selection of black dresses ahead is perfect for fall 2020 and beyond, you'll see.

Cutouts are all I can think about right now. 

Believe it or not, but off-the-shoulder dresses are back. 

Mini dresses layered underneath a big blazer will be one of the most popular outfit trends this season. 

Grab your favorite Converse and you've got yourself the easiest casual fall look ever. 

Get this in every color. You won't regret it. 

Belt it, wear it under a blazer—the options are endless with this basic. 

Sometimes a cool logo really can make all the difference. 

If you have yet to buy into the shoulder pad T-shirt moment, now's the time. 

This dress can be dolled up or dressed-down with ease. 

Pairing a voluminous mini dress with tall boots is such a vibe right now. 

Comfortable, affordable, and seasonless. 

Polo-style necklines were a micro-trend spotted on the fall/winter 2020 runways. 

I just bought this and plan on wearing it as deep into fall as I can. 

These micro pleats make this dress look so expensive. 

Lots of leather is trending yet again this season. 

Built-in baubles on the straps make accessorizing ten times easier.
