In the beginning of this whole thing we were all just trying to cover up as best we could. Now that masks have become a big part of our lives (at the very least when we go to the store or are lucky enough meet up with friends), so many designers are whipping up face covers at what seems like lightning speed. So now that it’s suddenly fashion, and a whole new shopportunity, I bring you some stylish masks that take a bit of the sting out of having to actually wear one. First up: this Baggu number, which comes in a lot of different colorways (as they say on Seventh Avenue) and actually feels kind of fun and slightly kooky in a seventies Marimekko/Mimi Loverde way (bonus points if you remember her!!)
I love Nili Lotan’s version that looks chic (if you can call a mask that) and stays put. Bonus: 100% of proceeds go to NYU Langone.
Gap is offering three-packs with all different kinds of patterns but I like this bandana/tie dye mix the best.
I love my M. Patmos mask, but it’s a little hot for right now. So yay that she just came out with this pretty lighter summer version in a few different colors and patterns.
Old Navy is also offering different family packs, but for those of you who are more into a minimal mask vibe, I bring you this neutral palette.
Clare V.’s denim blue and bright red piece is almost like a classic espadrille for the face.It’s not a mask per se, but this cap/shield combo is another option, and you can always flip the plastic up when you don’t need it.
Here’s a set for two moods: simple and a bit boho.
I like this somewhat preppie gingham one, especially for summer.
This bohemian duo has a handmade batik feel.
