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 umbrella—one with a real handle, even! Plus, you’ll be less likely to leave one of these lovelies behind in a bar or restaurant.

Muji excels at simplicity, but this orange umbrella is anything but boring. $15.95.

The Don’t-Mix-Plaids Rule encounters a big loophole with this playful Totes model, resplendent with a real wooden shaft. $30.
