Gray skies won’t seem so gloomy with these colorful umbrellas

Rainy days can be such a bummer. Nobody really wants to go out when skies are gloomy and cloudy, and we often forget that while spring means warmer weather, it also means a lot more rain. In fact, you can probably expect a few cloudy, drizzly days sprinkled in between those bright and sunny ones every week.

But just because it’s raining doesn’t mean plans should be cancelled: Rainy weather can still make for nice walks (if it’s not pouring!) and are easy to handle with the right gear. We’ve already been preparing for the rainy season with Amazon’s best-selling raincoat, a super stylish (and affordable!) waterproof bag, and even a fun, raved-about dog poncho. Below, we rounded up some of Amazon’s cutest and brightest umbrellas, so you can stand out on a gray day.

While we love this clear bubble umbrella with colorful polka dots simply because it’s adorable, many of these umbrellas have thousands of positive reviews and cool features — including this windproof, super compact EEZ-Y umbrella with over 2,200 five-star ratings and this rainbow Rain-Mate umbrella with an ergonomic handle. We also found some stylish inverted umbrellas (which give you the ability to close them from the inside out when you’re getting in a car or opening a door), like this best-selling Sharpty inverted umbrella.

Take your pick, and enjoy the rainy days ahead!
