You'd probably discover, as I have, that a few scattered wrinkles look messy, but lots of wrinkles look fascinating. Intentionally wrinkling garments adds texture. You can control the direction and density of wrinkled textures, add patterns with a few folds, and reshape an entire garment with just a simple twist of damp, natural-fiber fabric.
