It’s that time of year we all eagerly wait for; the sun slowly starts to show itself and we begin taking off the layers to stretch out in the sun. Bringing back some colour to our weary winter skin tone. We welcome the warmer breeze, the blossoming of wildflowers and the sunshine on our backs and we sense that everything in life is starting to feel that little bit easier.

Spring is the time for you to go back out into the world again with boldness and confidence, people and places open their doors for you to fill your social calendar up from weddings, festivals, and sporting events to brunches and family bbq’s. The things you have been longing to do on those winter days cooped up inside. It's a time when you are so excited to get out and move again to fully express yourself and live the life that brings you the most joy. The most disappointing thing that can happen as you go to your wardrobe to finally put on that spring dress that makes you feel light and free only to realise you have nothing you like, nothing that now expresses who you want to be this season.  You have all these places to go and nothing to wear! That festival you booked for October or your close friend’s wedding in November, not even something casual to wear to a family BBQ! Panic sets in at the thought of having no time left to find the perfect outfit, but don’t stress… Matea Designs has you covered!

“Where do I start? There is so much for me to choose from and I have no idea and no time to work out what is going to work for me this spring!!” We hear you….take a look at our top 3 suggestions to help you narrow the search.


  • #1 What Spring occasions do you love to attend?
  • Narrowing down the events you love to go to will help you fine tune your dress choice. Sexy and slim fit for a day at the races? Or floral and flowy for a wedding or family BBQ? 
  • Whether it's sleek slim fitting for night out with your girlfriends, or conservative but empowering for your board meeting. The type of occasion you are attending narrows the field of what to choose. 
  • #2 Who do you admire and what do you love?

  • Do you ever look at someone and think they just look fantastic! Or you admire someone’s style, piece of clothing or colour choice? They are the little signs showing you what you like. 
  • Take notice of what grabs your attention when you’re out with people, on your favourite Netflix series or movies.
  • #3 Who are you and how do you like to show up in the world?
  • What do you value in life and what lights up your world? What are you drawn to? Figuring out who you are and what you love in life can point you in the direction of who you are in fashion. 
  • Would you describe yourself as a free spirit or someone who likes to go with the flow and have a good time? You may be drawn to a more boho style, loose fitting flowy garments. 
  • Are you the life of the party? Do you love socialising and going out dancing with friends or social events, getting to know new people? You will probably be drawn to sexy, slim fit and glamorous!
  • Are you more of a creative entrepreneur? Would you prefer a drink at a prestigious wine bar or checking out a new alternative art exhibition? You may be drawn to bolder, patterned, vibrant garments that express your creativity.
  • You could be a career driven stay at home mum who loves days out with her family but is dedicated to her career and enjoys dinners with clients. You can fill your wardrobe with dresses that fit all sides of your personality.
  • Answering these questions can help you find your style. Need a little more help? We have made a top 10 list just for you.
