Linda Rodin: Style Icon, You Can

This week’s style icon is Linda Rodin, founder of the Olio Lusso line of cosmetic oils and fragrances. Rodin worked as a model and was an aspiring photographer before she started styling fashion shoots in the 1970s. She also owned a SoHo boutique for a time.

Rodin’s style uniform looks to be a piece of denim paired with something softer, flat shoes or boots, bold lips, and statement glasses. BAM. Boiling down one’s everyday look to this kind of signature is so effective. And so simple.
