In São Paulo, the land of the drizzle, it doesn’t stop raining but it also doesn’t stop fashion. On rainy days, seeing as having an umbrella is one of the most important items to bring with you, the movie Singin' In The Rain inspired me to look for a Fashionista with a nice umbrella, instead of a black or regular one.
This Fashionista grabbed my attention with her feminine and delicate polka-dot umbrella. Investing in different and unique accessories like this one is what makes you shine in the crowd and on clouded and boring days. Also, it brings life to the gray, cold winter days.
Besides, who hasn't added to their wish-list the famous Burberry umbrella? Or who never wanted to be fashionable like Mary Kate Olsen with her ruffle umbrella? Both are good examples of how it can be such a great hit to look for chic and over the top accessories. In this case, an outstanding umbrella. To do that, important names in fashion design have created unique umbrellas like Alexander McQueen's skull handle umbrella. But not only luxury brands have interesting variations. You can also find one that fits your personality and your budget in stores such as TopShop, Forever 21 and H&M. If you find one by an emerging designer or a vintage one, all the better.
The great thing about accessories is that they go beyond just shoes, bags and jewelry. There are also wallets, belts, scarves, luggage, sunglasses, glasses, charms…and umbrellas! Now, fashion shows up both on and under my umbrella.
