Tailoring Is the Secret of a Well-Dressed Woman

tailored blazer cashmere isle of skye sweatersAlterations have the power to turn an okay garment and transform it into something that looks like it was made just for you. In this time of “fast fashion” and disposable clothing, many women don’t want to invest the money in a high-quality garment that doesn’t fit them correctly. One of the fantastic things that we do here at Isle of Skye Cashmere is offer free alterations on garments bought in the store.

I highly recommend taking the time to tailor your clothes so they fit you like a glove. Although proper fit is the primary reason for tailoring, alterations can also help to modernize your clothes or update them to line up with your evolving sense of style. One of the most common garments that need to be tailored to ensure a correct fit are blazers. Our blazers that are made with Loro Piana cashmere are beautiful – but with proper tailoring, they become extraordinary! Our seamstress, Chanta, has many years of experience working with these fantastic blazers.

Tailoring your clothes can help you cultivate a wardrobe filled with things that you love to wear! We tailor clothes bought in the store as well as clothes bought elsewhere. We’d love to help you perfect your wardrobe.

Tips from our Resident Stylist: The Cashmere V-Neck Cardigan

Cooler weather is rapidly approaching. Our days are still pretty warm, but we are starting to reach for our sweaters for an added layer of warmth in the evenings. A simple, but classic Cashmere V-neck Cardigan is a great item to have this time of year and a perfect staple to any wardrobe! I especially love it in a dark, neutral color like black, navy or the wonderful green in the photo. This versatile cardigan can be worn casually with jeans and a printed top. The neckline is perfect over a beautifully tailored collared shirt or it can add the finishing touch to a simple shift dress worn with a great pair of pumps. We have some beautiful LK Bennett patent leather pumps in our store right now! While a v-neck cardigan is the perfect accent to almost any look, it can also be the foundation of the outfit. Whether worn with a skirt, pants or over a dress, just button the middle 2 or 3 buttons and add a belt as shown. This really transforms a timeless piece into something unique!
