We've checked the weather forecast, and bad news: this rain isn't going anywhere any time soon - so if you have to put up with it, the least you can do is treat yourself to a nice new umbrella.
It's time to ditch that embarrassing old half-broken thing you've been carting around with you, and pick up one of these style-savvy brollies instead.
With one of these over your head, suddenly we have a feeling the rain won't seem quite so bad...
Now, all you need to do is try not to leave it on the train/bus/tube. You'll kick yourself.
