Style Glossary: Sateen


Usually made of cotton, or sometimes rayon, and has a satin-like finish. But not as lustrous as satin fabric. Variation of satin weave with filling yarn as floats over warp yarn. Often found in bed sheets but can also be found in clothing.

Bring some sateen into your life with this Marc by Marc Jacobs Sabrina Sateen Dress ($164, originally $328).

I like this fabric on bed sheets, but DEFINITELY too wrinkle-prone to wear on the body.

I hate Sateen b/c it wrinkles so easily, but that's a cute dress.

Personally, not the greatest fabric to wear. I own a pair of sateen pants and the fabric wrinkles easily.
