Trend Alert: Satin

If you are over metallics, satin is a toned-down alternative. With roots in the glamor girls of the 40s, the fluid and rich fabric is a favorite for evening. But with today's satiny options you can wear it 'round the clock. I love it in jewel tones in particular, see Prada S/S '07; when you have a deep plum, cranberry or Spring green satin the color is intensified. Mmmm, if fabric were edible I think satin would taste delightful! I suggest sticking to a simple silhouette and skip the frills and ruffles - today's satin is best in a minimal setting. Here are my picks.
