Linen is a wonderful canvas fabric and an excellent sartorial choice for the extremely warm season. From pants and jackets to shirts and even shoes, it can be worn in a very wide variety of shapes so make sure you are taking full advantage of this fabric in summer.

* To wear linen confidently is to embrace the material’s relaxed crumpledness, and the easiest way to do this is with a linen suit. Ideal for a relaxed summer wedding, particularly in a shade of tan, a simple two-piece allows you to beat the heat and still look smart.

* Finish with a checked shirt in crisp cotton to add in both contrasting textures and patterns. If you are wearing a linen suit, you should know that a white linen suit will have a more vintage vibe than a navy or brown suit, which feature a more modern feel. From an aesthetic point of view, you will not have best results if you are wearing linen from head to toe: break it down with some cotton!

* To stay breezy but still business-appropriate, go halves on your suit with a neatly cut linen blazer. Trousers are more prone to creasing from sitting down, so keep them freshly pressed in a dark cotton or cotton blend and opt for a lighter jacket up top.

* A white linen shirt is an excellent all-rounder when it comes to summer dressing. Owing to its laid-back appeal, a well-cut version can slide under a suit to tone down a more formal look, or sit over a T-shirt and shorts to take a casual combination up a notch. You can experiment with the colours as well. One could go for a sky blue version or try light pink. (Bollywood Country)

Researchers have found that US teenagers and adults are more likely to try illegal or recreational drugs for the first time in summer. “First-time users may be unfamiliar with the effects of various drugs, so it is important to first understand when people are most likely to start these behaviours,” said Joseph J. Palamar, Associate Professor at New York University.

In 2017, according to the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, more than three million people in the US tried LSD, marijuana, cocaine, or ecstasy for the first time. The study used data collected from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health between 2011 and 2017 involving about 394,415 people aged 12 and older.

According to the researchers, participants were surveyed about their use of various drugs through a computer-assisted interview. New users were asked to recall the month and year when they initiated use.

The investigators suggest that the results could be explained, in part, by people having extra recreational time during the summer, as well as the growing popularity of outdoor activities, such as music festivals, at which recreational drug use is common.

“Parents and educators who are concerned about their kids need to educate them year-round about potential risks associated with drug use, but special emphasis appears to be needed before or during summer months when rates of initiation increase,” Palamar said. (IANS)
