The life of a modern woman is full of transitions, from bustling workdays to evenings filled with social engagements. Donna Leah, the founder of Donna Leah Designs, knows this all too well and has curated a collection designed to make these transitions as seamless and stylish as possible.
As an eveningwear designer, she combines her love for shine, sophistication, and sustainability to craft versatile pieces that maximize the use of your wardrobe.
Styling a single outfit from a day at the office to an evening out isn’t just a nod to sustainable fashion—it’s also an exhibition of your personal style’s versatility. The Sizzle Series, Donna Leah’s newest collection, is a testament to this adaptability.
The Sizzle Series isn’t just a dress—it’s a swim cover-up, a cocktail dress, and even a tunic when paired with leggings or jeans. “This style is extremely flattering on any body type because it’s not clingy or shapeless. I wanted this piece to be the new summer staple because we want one piece to do it all—fashion, function, and everything in between,” says Donna Leah. This collection reflects her love for shine and shimmer and encapsulates the joyous, laid-back vibe of her home base, Miami. Whether you’re exploring the stunning beaches or admiring the beautiful sunsets, the Sizzle Series is a wardrobe staple that effortlessly transitions from a sophisticated beach or pool cover-up to an elegant evening dress.

Here are Donna Leah’s exclusive 5 steps to transforming your outfit from day to night effortlessly, featuring the game-changing Sizzle Series:
Choose Your Base
The base of your outfit sets the overall tone. The Sizzle Series introduces a flowy, tunic-style dress crafted from all-over sequin fabric with appliques. The dress features a rounded neckline and mid-length sleeves with a small cuff, creating a laid-back t-shirt silhouette. With its length of 33”, it pairs perfectly with sneakers for a sophisticated lunch or heels for a night out. For added versatility, cinch it at the waist with a belt for an entirely different look.
Select the Jacket
Layering with a jacket offers additional sophistication. Blazers, trench coats, and denim jackets make the transition from day to night effortlessly. As the evening unfolds, swap these out for a leather jacket or another luxurious piece from Donna Leah’s collection.
Choose Your Footwear
Footwear greatly influences the vibe of your outfit. Opt for comfortable flats during the day, then swap them for stylish heels to elevate your evening look.
Donna Leah champions the transformative power of accessories. Keep it simple during the day with understated pieces, then as night falls, let your accessories shine by layering necklaces, stacking rings, and adding chunky bangles.
Adjust Your Makeup
Complement your outfit with suitable makeup. Keep it neutral and light during the day and transition to bold, vibrant colors for the evening to add an extra pop to your look. Donna Leah’s philosophy extends to makeup too, reminding us that fashion, including makeup, is a form of self-expression. Let your personality shine through as you transition from a day at work to a night of fun or relaxation.
As Donna Leah explains, “The Sizzle Series is more than just a dress—it’s an expression of versatile fashion that transitions smoothly from dawn to dusk.”
