Brighten Up Rainy Days With Fun Umbrellas!
TREND: Quirky 'n' colorful umbrellas
WHO'S WEARING IT: Katy Perry and Zoe Saldana
HOW TO WEAR IT: It may be a winter-white wonderland where you are (and if that is the case, file this piece away for when spring showers roll around!), but it's all gray skies in Los Angeles.
If you had watched the Golden Globes red carpet arrivals, you would've seen stars shielding themselves from the dreary rain with equally somber black umbrellas. That's fine when you're at an awards show and you don't want to detract attention from your fabulous couture gown. But toting a kitten umbrella when it's pouring cats and dogs on a regular ol' day is way more fun! Just don't get carried away like Katy did and wear a cartoon face shirt on top of that. (A neutral outfit is key!) Too cutesy for you? Then try a vibrant printed parasol like Zoe's. Unique Vintage has lots of great eye-catching options and part of the proceeds go to Haiti relief efforts.
