First Look: Satin

Satin is back for transition/fall/winter. Like metallic finishes, the fabric is now being worn during the day. ‘Looks especially swell with textured wool or cashmere. Dresses and jumpsuits likely accompany cocktails, but skirts can be sported with sweaters. Remember there’s more of a  difference between polyester satin and silk satin than cost.
