Umbrellas don’t have to just be to keep you dry on a rainy day, they also say a lot about your personal style. Whether you use it when you travel for work, at your university campus, or on a date out in the city, your choice of umbrella is telling people around about who you are. We carry different types and styles from brands such as Davek New York and Vancouver Umbrella so you can find one that suits you and your situation perfectly.
There are many different products to suit different occasions, depending on the type of social situation and how you would carry them.
Picking the Right Umbrella
There are several reasons why you might want or need an umbrella, and that can help you pick the right one. Do you need something small so it’s easily stored and carried when you don’t use it? Do you need it for an activity like golfing? Does it need to be more formal for a business environment? Here are some things to keep in mind.
A plain black umbrella is best for most formal situations, and as a neutral colour goes well with almost any situation or style. You can also get brighter colours, or even patterns with mixed colours if you want to make a bolder statement regarding your sense of style.
A subtle way to showcase your style is by choosing a different material for the shaft and handle. You can get them made from deluxe wooden or leather materials to go with formal wear, or simple plastic. You can also get them with different shaped handles, such as the classic hooked handle.
Most umbrellas will have the same shape, with a gradual curve to give you the most coverage from the rain. However, you can also get them with greater degree of sloping so they look more like a dome.
They can come in different sizes depending on how much portability or protection from rain you prefer. Smaller versions are better for cramped streets during your commute, while larger ones can be shared with a date.
If you want something that you can keep with you at all times just in case, you’ll likely prefer an umbrella that can be collapsed into a highly compact form that is easy to carry in a pocket or bag.
As an extra bonus, there is a variety of umbrella features that can give a little added touch to their appearance and utility—open them with the push of a button, get them with wind resistance, or have a deluxe leather carrying case.
