Dazzling Dresses That Double as Swim Cover-Ups
There’s something magical about multi-tasking that shouldn’t be reserved for work. Fashionably speaking, we love the idea of one wardrobe staple doing double duty. This summer that hero piece is a tunic style dress. The one everyone is craving right now is from Donna Leah Design’s Sizzle Series.
The idea for the collection came from the Miami based designer, Donna Leah, when she observed women craving a sophisticated cover-up for every swimsuit they owned. The beach lifestyle includes family days at the beach, evenings sipping cocktails poolside, and day parties on rooftops and terraces. There needed to be one dress that can handle it all – and so the Sizzle Series was created.
“We are all being more mindful of purchases by buying what we truly love and wearing it in multiple ways. It’s about diversifying our warm weather wardrobes and having a dress that can be worn with heels for a cocktail party, over a bathing suit with flip flops or brunch with sneakers,” says the designer. “My mission was to design an irresistible cover-up that does it all!”
The latest swimwear posts on social media are stepping away from cut off denim and are embracing a more sophisticated vibe. The reality is that a tunic or t-shirt dress cover-up is chic and more comfortable than a pair of shorts. Trending now are upgraded looks that are cool looking, easy to wear, and will bring in loads of compliments. There are a few things to look for when shopping for the perfect piece which the designer shares below.
The Perfect Length for Every Occasion
The reason why the Sizzle Series works so well from beach to bar is, in part, the length. At 33” in length from the center top shoulder, the dress hits the perfect place just above the knee. There is no need to worry about coverage if it’s not being used over a bikini. The length works equally as well when paired with fun metallic sneakers or that new pair of heels that you bought to kick off the summer season.
Color That Tells A Story
Donna Leah Designs takes her color palette and inspirations from nature found all over Miami. Think pinks and oranges from the sunset and blues from the ocean. If color was an emotion, the go to hue would be a multicolor that embraces the diversity, music, art, and an energetic vibe of a city that attracts a sophisticated international crowd.
Versatility for the Ultimate Wardrobe Staple
The sun is out to play, and you never know what the weekend will bring. A dress is the perfect choice for looking put together quickly and easily. The Sizzle Series was designed to be flexible in how it is worn, achieving “most versatile” piece in one’s wardrobe. Because the Sizzle Series does not cling to the body, it looks great on everyone. “Gone are the days where it’s acceptable to embrace the “no pain, no gain” mentality. Today, women are seeking a style where confidence comes from being comfortable and knowing that you look amazing,” says Donna Leah.
