What is Linda Tol’s style like?
Linda Tol is the epitome of street style, very practical, comfortable and distinctive. She skillfully uses the Scandinavian approach of simple cuts and natural fabrics.
What is immediately striking when looking at her outfits is her sunglasses. She prefers to wear geometrically shaped, quite large ones. Not only can you hide your sleeplessness behind them, which, especially for a young mom, is not unusual, but they can also spice up any outfit, even the most modest and minimalist.
Her closet is quite calm and subdued. It is dominated by whites, blacks, warm beiges and browns, reds and bottle greens. Sometimes a color accent appears in the form of intense red, yellow or purple, mostly in accessories, such as bags. This color palette allows you to easily compose a timeless closet, perfect for any time of year. Of course, there can also be no lack of denim, which she wears not only on a daily basis, but also in more formal stylings.
Linda Tol’s style is also based on the “onion” principle. The influencer dresses in layers, plays with proportions and textures, moving within the mentioned colors. She is able to combine elements that at first glance do not match. She is particularly fond of suits, which, depending on the day, she wears in an elegant version or, on the contrary, with a scaled-down coat and fashionable shoes on thick soles or with a turtleneck or vest.
