A doyenne of minimalist glamour, Talisa Sutton’s seemingly effortless approach to understated chic has long inspired our own sartorial imaginings…particularly in that tricky realm of guest fashion. In search of simple answers to the eternal question of ‘what will I wear to that upcoming wedding?!’, one uttered with particular frequency around city destinations or cocktail dress codes, we caught up with this busy blogger to steal her essential styling tips, for nailing chic minimalism (and ending up with pieces you’ll actually wear again!). 

Less is More
Don’t be afraid to under accessorise, sometimes all you need is a simple necklace or a chic pair of earrings to compliment your look.

When in Doubt, Wear Black
You can never have too many little black dresses in your wardrobe. I like to have a few different options, some more casual and others more cocktail or evening appropriate. 

Play with Proportions
Experiment with a voluminous sleeve and a shorter hemline, or pair a flowing top back with a slim-leg trouser. Balance is key here, but don’t be afraid to have a bit of fun.

Invest in the Classics
I never like to buy something I think I’ll only wear once. Particularly with weddings, I prefer to invest a little bit more in a classic style I know I will wear again for other occasions and events.

Flats are Back
If you’re attending a garden or beach wedding, chances are it won’t be great news for your shoes. Luckily flats are having a moment and there are plenty of ‘fancy flats’ to choose from. I love a slightly pointed style with an ankle tie which not only looks great paired back with a dress, but means you won’t be playing a balancing act on your friends special day.
