i see you have received a number of typically helpful responses.
since you're 18, you're not going to need much more than 3-4 at most. get one with a traditional houndstooth or plaid -- it's more casual than the blue blazer, and a bit more interesting. a couple in cotton (even more casual) will perhaps be even more helpful given what you want to use them for.
things will get more complicated when you enter the professional working world and the rest of your wardrobe advances, but with the above you should be set for now.
