Top 5 Umbrellas


Winter is right around the corner and nothing puts a dampener on your day like being stuck in the rain. Here, in no particular order, are five of our favourite umbrellas. Take your pick! 1. Frilly Spot Umbrella R199.95, Woolworths.  It's not only constructed on a high quality steel frame but is also made-to-flip if blown inside out by the wind. Plus, it's pretty darn cute too. 2. Royal Delft Senz Mini Umbrella R565, smacs.co.za. The Original Mini is one of three pocket-size models available from Senz. High quality fabrics, neatly finished details and unique eyesavers make this safe and fashionable. 3. The Auto Breeze Umbrella R250, Cape Union Mart. Nothing says classic like a sleek black umbrella. This water repellent and resistant umbrella is constructed of black fibreglass and anodised steel.  4. Babatunde Hot-Wax Umbrella $45 (approximately R475), babatunde.co.za. No two are the same. Need we say more? Here's a few more for you to admire. 5. Amplifier Deco Animal Alphabet Print Umbrella R299, superbalist.com. The cute typography and polished wooden handle make this a must-have designer brollie.
