Yea or Nay: Sun Umbrellas

With everything we know about sun damage, does it really make sense to relegate the umbrella to the sole role of keeping us dry? Not if you’re a New Yorker, or a member of any other global community for that matter, as sun umbrellas brighten sidewalks now more than ever.

According to the New York Daily News, “…the classic Asian accessory has crossed the Pacific and swiftly been seized by style-conscious New Yorkers. In fact, sun umbrellas have collectively become the hottest style trend of the summer.”

The pros: valuable sun protection and another chance to pick up a fun and stylish accessory. The cons: as if the handbag, briefcase, cellphone and/or iced coffee weren’t enough to juggle, now we need just one more hand.
