A parasol is mainly designed to protect you from sunlight. When talking about an “umbrella,” this usually refers to something that specifically protects you from the rain. However, “parasol” actually derives from the Italian words “para” which means, “to protect from” and “sole” which is means “sunlight”.
Parasols vary in colors, sizes, styles and prices and can be used for fashion or practical purposes. Though a parasol is still technically a small umbrella, it is commonly delicate and elegant in appearance. They are easily carried around due to its lightweight and are designed to match any style or personality. Most parasols are do not have waterproof canopies so don’t try and take it out in the rain!
