A question asked by no one ever: How many black dresses is too many? The limit does not exist, in my opinion. While it's important to have boring LBDs in one's wardrobe, there are also tons and tons of interesting, beautiful black dresses to choose from—especially on Net-a-Porter.

As the headline states, Net-a-Porter has a whopping 769 black dresses to choose from, and I think it goes without saying that it's not easy to narrow things down from there, as its buyers really know what they're doing. Each dress has, undoubtedly, been carefully selected, and on a recent fall trend presentation that I attended, NAP's team forecasted that "black is back."

As someone who loves both pretty black dresses and Net-a-Porter, I thought it would make perfect sense for me to narrow down the options to the cream of the pretty-black-dress crop. Scroll on to shop the ones that delighted me the most.
