Spring Showers may be long gone, but that definitely doesn’t mean we’re all in the clear. With rainstorms and downpours taking center stage in 10-day forecasts throughout the country, we’ve got to gear up. I know we’re all accustomed to looking adorable and fashionable no matter the elements, but style doesn’t extend only as far as our bodies. You may have the perfect wellies and raincoat, the cutest waterproof hat, and the greatest rain-ready handbag, but if you then go and pick up that old, broken-down, drab umbrella…all is lost.
The umbrella is as much of a representation of your style as it is a shield against the water drops above. So why not invest in one that speaks to who you are? After all, in a sea of umbrellas, you want yours to tell the world how awesome you are. Click through below for a sampling of some great options out there. Already have an amazing umbrella that defines you to a T? Tell me about it in the comments section below!
