Besides being one of my best friends, Roy Otwell is the founder and co-proprietor of the ultra-hip home store Switch Modern (switchmodern.com). He’s a dedicated student of popular culture, cool trends, and good style.

I always turn to Roy for fashion advice. Roy likes to say, “Fashion is about trends but style involves authenticity and a point of view.”  Here’s what’s on Roy’s mind this month:

“New Yorkers seem to love rainy days. Look on the street, and you’ll see hoards of men and women sloshing by in Wellies, Tretorns, and other rain boots in a rainbow of colors—even camo.  Interestingly, you won’t see many traditional trench coats. Instead, men are favoring casual, lightweight, often-hooded, mid-length raincoats. Some have slits in the back and uneven hems, others are oilcloth, and some are PVC. The new look seems right for these more casual times.”
