Sales of linen blend is increasing
“Although linen is a popular summer fabric, we don’t notice at Café Costume that the sale of linen suits has increased in recent years,” Van Gils says. “What is seeing an increase in sales is ‘linen blends.’ These are suits in which linen is blended with another fabric, such as cotton or wool.”
“The advantage of this blended suit is that it wrinkles less quickly. Linen is known for that, but with a blended outfit like this, you see it less quickly.

“In terms of shoes, you can opt for espadrilles if you want a casual look. With sandals you can have a more summery look. Do you want it more elegant? Then you can make your pants a little shorter at the bottom and wear a nice pair of moccasins under them. This is the typical Italian outfit. “.

Linen is a natural material that wrinkles easily. “Either iron your clothes before going outside, or go for the casual look of a slightly wrinkled suit,” Devriendt says. “Avoiding wrinkles completely is almost impossible. Once you walk out the door, the movements you make will cause wrinkles here and there, for example on the elbows or sleeves.”
