Summary:
At the turn of the 20th century, women never left the house without a dainty umbrella or parasol to protect their skin against the sun. As tanned skin became fashionable, the umbrella's main purpose shifted to shield against the rain. Today, we only carry one when we have to, and an umbrella is considered a burden rather than a chic accessory.

Abstract:

At the turn of the 20th century, women never left the house without a dainty umbrella or parasol to protect their skin against the sun. As tanned skin became fashionable, the umbrella's main purpose shifted to shield against the rain. Today, we only carry one when we have to, and an umbrella is considered a burden rather than a chic accessory.
