Picture this: you’ve got the sun lounger at the ready, an icy drink in one hand, and a good book in the other. But, what’s missing? Say hello to pretty parasols – compact, easy to use, and your best friend on hot summer days.
Apart from protecting you from UV rays and offering the perfect shady spot for relaxing in the garden, pretty parasols are also ideal for livening up your outdoors.
But first, let’s talk about practicalities. To ensure you can enjoy your parasol for years to come, invest in a durable solution. Think water-repellent fabrics, with a sturdy base, and UV-resistant. When not in use, remember to either store it in a shed or use a weatherproof cover to avoid any fading and damage.
When it comes to style, these days you can find a multitude of options available, whether you prefer a maximalist look drenched in colours and patterns or a more pared-back Scandi-inspired aesthetic. We’ve got something for every taste and budget.
To help you enjoy British balmy days this summer, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite solutions. Get your screenshot button ready – you’re going to love these! Let’s take a look…
