Umbrellas could be thought of as the ultimate accessory. Because they come in all colors and designs, they can easily accent an outfit and keep you dry or shield you from the sun. Pictured here is an embellished umbrella from the Little India area of Artesia. (Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times)

Umbrellas aren’t just for the rain. They come in handy for those days when the sun’s rays are shining strong. On Memorial Day in Santa Monica last year, hundreds of thousands of people celebrated the weekday off with barbecues, picnics and beach parties. (Damon Winter / Los Angeles Times)
