Banish Those Rainy Day Blues

As we step into the New Year with bold ideas for our bright future, it would be a shame to let the January rain get you down. You may be itching to wear a bikini in the sun, but with the right accessories there is no reason you can’t add a splash of colour and pattern to lighten up these dreary days.

Even our designer favorites are now creating beautiful compact umbrellas that won’t break the bank. Here is a selection to choose from; all under £35 and bound to add a chic edge to the morning rush hour.

Be fabulous with shimmery python scales in deep purple tones from Marc Jacobs (£24).

Never afraid of mixing bright colours, Jonathan Adler offers us his ‘Positano Hexagon’ umbrella. The bold clash of purple, green and orange add a little summer spice to a wet winter (£30).

Oliver Bonas add a flutter of teal and coral to your outfit with their dainty ‘Emperor Butterfly’ umbrella (£18).

We may be heading for spring but Anthropologie’s ‘Wet Paint’ umbrella features an array of deep autumnal hues (£24).


For the most delicate and ladylike umbrella of them all, we look to Lulu Guinness and her birdcage umbrella. An intricate grey birdcage printed on a deep transparent pvc dome will keep you perfectly dry while feeling like a duchess (£32).
