Spring is that time when the raindrops are welcomed to wash away all the debris from the winter past. Umbrellas come out of the closet and take up residence in the front hall, because even when it’s sunny out in the morning, by lunch time it could become overcast and start raining. Umbrellas are one of those tools that help you keep dry in the inclement weather.
Umbrellas come in a variety of styles, shapes, colors and can be a fashion statement that makes a wet dreary day, so much nicer.
Historically most umbrellas for men are either black or dark navy. They are utilitarian and made just to keep the men in our lives dry on a rainy day. For the ladies, Umbrellas are a whole different ball game. They are or can be a fashion statement. There are plain umbrellas that come in a multitude of colors, one to go with any outfit that you could find in your closet. Then there are the “designer” umbrellas. These are made to look like Renior paintings or Stained glass from Tiffany. They are not just dome shaped, but some are even shaped like tulips, or some have ruffled edges, cut outs and a whole range of different attributes to make them beautiful.
Umbrellas can be shaped like flowers daisies, or they could be covered in your favorite animals.
A woman could have a dozen umbrellas and still find reason to buy one more. Not only are they pretty and functional, some of them are downright ingenious. They collapse down into a size that fits into any woman’s handbag. When needed, they extend and become a full fledged umbrella offering the same benefits that a non-collapsible one does. It’s a great way to be prepared for just about anything as far as weather goes…..
These collapsible umbrellas are a wonderful little item to keep in the bottom of your handbag, especially in the spring months, because you never know when the clouds are going to appear, to turn a sunny day into a rainy one.
