    I like the look and feel of linen in the summer, but dislike how it wrinkles so easily.  Any recommendations on what pieces to get (shirts, pants, blazers, etc.) as well as whether to go for a blend with another fabric rather than straight linen would be appreciated.

    Lately I have been on a linen shopping spree.. Being a college student is different than a professional, so for the grown ups I would reccommend a nice ivory/beige linen suit. The whole thing with linen though is that it shouldn't be pressed very well, the whole linen look is to have some wrinkles in it, as long as it doesn't look like you slept in it. For the younger crowd, a nice linen shirt and white linen pants definitely have a nice summer, stylish, laid-back attitude to them.
