The winter to spring shift is a time for rebirth, especially this year. When it comes to the wardrobe, it’s all about having the right tools in place to adapt to changing weather and conditions. Our Spring Style Toolkit is here to help.

Though the weather is at its most unpredictable, the umbrella is often shamefully overlooked when it comes to spring. Even brands themselves tend to steer clear of the umbrella while happily plastering a text logo across almost every other possible accessory imaginable.

A well-made umbrella with an effective mechanism is a beautiful object — a simple and satisfyingly efficient piece of equipment that gets the job done. When you manage to find an umbrella that looks good, too, you should hold on tight to it.

Whether you're looking for something understated or another name to add to your wardrobe, the umbrella is an underrated way to rejig your seasonal looks. From Snow Peak's outdoor expertise in umbrella form to an ultra-bright option from London Undercover, this selection runs the gamut of handheld rain protection in style.
