In this feature from the new issue of HIGHStyle, our editors discuss the umbrellas that will make you at one with the drip .

Umbrellas have a strange place in style. Often more of an afterthought, they have never really typified cool, but it's about time that changed. The umbrella is the perfect example of function over form, a tool engineered first and foremost for doing what it does best. Keeping you dry. And that should be both admired and respected.

The canopy at the top of this get-the-job-done accessory happens to be the perfect place for getting personal style across, whether that be through bold colors, prints, or brand-loving logomania. With a mandate for stylish umbrellas issued, our editors got together discuss the best on the market at the moment, giving their thoughts on their favorites.
