Guys, I've Been Thinking: Parasols Need To Come Back In Style Right Now

We can make this happen.

If you're at least somewhat pale, you probably know the struggle of trying to stay out of the menacing sun's rays. And even if you're not, I bet you've felt uncomfortable under direct sunlight for too long.

And that's why, dear friends, I propose to you all the return of an old– nay, ANCIENT– friend: the parasol. AKA: an umbrella, but for the sun.


If you're like me, you obviously know the importance of sunscreen, but you're still constantly on edge for fear that your skin will be baked to a damn crisp anytime you go outside.

I'm not saying parasols aren't already a thing right now. Some people are absolutely rocking them as we speak.

The rest of us just need to get on their level.

I mean, I live in New York City, the Big Apple, the #2 Fashion Capital of the World (according to a random website I just went to), and I think I've only seen one person carrying a parasol ever???

We've resurrected all sorts of things from the past, and the parasol should be the next big one.

Because the sun hasn't burned out yet, but it's burning US.
