New Trend Alert: Parasols!

For years we’ve heard about the perils of sun exposure, and people have gotten used to wearing high-SPF sunscreens, hats, even long-sleeved bathing suits to protect their skin. Now, some are going one step further: toting an umbrella or parasol to shield themselves from the sun, especially the strong summer rays. It’s not uncommon to see women — and it is mostly women — on shopping excursions or walks through the park, shading themselves under umbrellas or parasols, which literally translates to “shield sun.”

While parasols are not a replacement for sunscreen, they provide excellent daily protection from sun exposure. They also come in fun colors and patterns and often come adorned with beautiful details like lace trim. So grab your favorite parasol and hit the streets!
