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.
