We know what you're thinking: Why do you need to look through a roundup of umbrellas? Let us tell you why. There will always be days when you have to run around from place to place, and on those days, there always seems to be a surprise thunderstorm around the corner. That, our friends, is why you need a cute umbrella on hand.
Depending on your preference, opt for one that is either loud and fun, or one that is compact and basic. Our personal favorites are clear, bubble umbrellas and a classic black compact parasol. Click through the gallery to see our top dependable picks.
