Looking to stock up on the best reusable face masks? No problem. We've rounded up a stylish edit of pretty face masks that are sure to brighten your day.
As the pandemic has rolled on, face masks have evolved. Gone are the days when wearing one meant looking like an off-duty health professional. And they don't need to be bland or plain black either. Stylish reusable face masks now come in an array of colors and prints, with retailers big and small creating new designs almost daily.
The wardrobe staple we never expected to need, reusable face masks have quickly become as much part of our everyday outfits as a pair of our best leggings and a comfy t-shirt. The perfect one may even grant you enough social clout from a back-to-school trends perspective.
But there are of course lots of things to consider when buying a stylish face mask. Is it comfortable to wear? Do you feel able to breathe freely when wearing it? Is the mask material right for sensitive skin? Can it be popped into the washing machine after use? And perhaps more trivially, does it look good?
It's also a good idea to be sure of how to wear a face mask properly, so that you are still protecting both yourself, your loved ones, and those who are vulnerable, and how to stop your glasses fogging up when wearing a face mask too.
Just be aware that these reusable face masks are non-medical, so are not guaranteed to stop coronavirus and are not suitable for environments where medical-grade PPE is required.
