The Fall/Winter 2020-21 Eveningwear collection by Zuhair Murad is an elegant and sophisticated presentation of tailored ensembles featuring distinguishing elements. Even if the world isn’t yet ready to return to large-scale gatherings and celebrations, special occasions will still take place, albeit with a smaller guest list. And these ensembles are a surefire way to make an entrance, whether you’re attending an intimate rehearsal dinner or venturing out for a romantic date night. There’s a beautiful juxtaposition created between classic and timeless silhouettes, which are elevated by various embellishments and textures for an updated look.

Three elements we’re loving in the Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 2020-21 eveningwear collection:

Belted Structure

This coming season is all about belted structure and accentuating the natural waist. (Brides-to-be will notice many bridal gowns featuring belts for the 2021 as well.) The peplum effect can be quite flattering, as it creates a beautiful hourglass shape, and Zuhair Murad incorporates belted styles across this evening wear collection – from blouses, to little black dresses.

Bold Prints and Jewel Tones

There’s nothing “cutesy” about this eveningwear collection. Zuhair Murad opts for a classic Fall/Winter color palette of black and jewel tones, with bold patterns sprinkled throughout. While black may be the more universal pick during the colder months, we love having alternatives in the form of rich burgundy, a Versailles-esque blue, and deep purple.

Statement Lace
Lace eveningwear is as modern as it is timeless. In this collection, classic lace frocks are transformed into statement lace dresses with tiered sleeves and skirts adding volume, while a belted waist adds structure to the silhouette. White lace blouses provide a more understated and ladylike option when worn with flared black trousers (a great day-to-night look). And for those who love wearing black head-to-toe, a floor-sweeping black lace top with wide-legged trousers is a gorgeously non-traditional approach to elegance.
