WITH autumn just around the corner and late summer showers still dominating the weather, the one accessory you know you can’t leave home without is an umbrella.

Brollies come in all shapes and sizes, of course, from those specifically built for blusters, to the handbag-sized - otherwise known as compact – versions that most of us have at least one of (some of us will have one in every bag). Some are “bubble” brollies with a dome shaped canopy that offers all-round protection, others are automatic, opening at push of a button.

All will help protect you from the Glaswegian elements. But rainy weather doesn’t need to mean dull, as the multitude of jolly, elegant and fun brolly designs in the high street and online highlight.

With this in mind we've brought together some of the brightest and best.
