An umbrella is a year-round fashion accessory in Seoul. In the Fall/Winter you carry a darker one (navy, black) while in the Spring/Summer you carry a lighter one (usually floral). Ladies use their summer umbrellas as parasols that provide shade when there isn’t an unexpected downpour of monsoon rain.
