Fashion Math: Is a Pricey Prada Umbrella Worth Emptying Your Rainy Day Fund?

April showers bring bad hair days, soggy commutes, footwear conundrums, and chintzy drugstore umbrellas that break. It’s about time to invest in a decent umbrella that you can use for many rainy seasons to come.  This Prada Nylon Umbrella ($230) won’t  crumple on you at the worst possible moment. It’s retractable with a leather handle and basic black color that will match all of your outfits. Let’s do a little fashion math to decide whether a chic, sturdy, Prada Nylon Umbrella ($230) is worth emptying the piggy bank:


“The Old Farmer’s Almanac” predicts up to 30 days of precipitation just between now and the end of May alone, so it’s a safe bet that you’ll walk out the door with your umbrella 10 days out of each month for the rest of the year. If you simply skip the tall latte on rainy days, you’ve made up your investment. Plus, if you take into account the clothes, shoes, bags and hairstyles you’ll be preserving by toting a trusty rain buster–including the costs you’ll save on many cheapo umbrellas that break it’s definitely a worthy investment. Now just remember not to leave it in a cab and you’re all set for any kind of weather.

Get geared up for rainy days with our guide to the best women’s rain gear, the best rain boots , and the best trench coats.
