Cheap umbrellas are as big of an eyesore on the sidewalk as they are in your entryway or closet. Chuck those bought-under-duress cheapies and graduate to a more grownup umbrellaâ€”one with a real handle, even! Plus, youâ€™ll be less likely to leave one of these lovelies behind in a bar or restaurant.
