Face masks are necessities these days. They help keep everyone safe, especially essential workers. And since necessity is the mother of invention, lots of fashion brands are putting their own spin on the must-have item. According to Vogue, the fashion-forward face mask will be the accessory of the summer. Not surprising since many celebs (along with Nancy Pelosi) are all about coordinating their face masks with their outfits.
While we should leave the medical-grade masks to the professionals, washable fabric masks are up for grabs. You’ll be happy to hear that there are plenty of stylish masks out there. Looking for a statement print? You’ll love Christine Alcalay’s colorful collection. How about a bit of texture? Proenza Schouler’s woodgrain mask or Lisa Says Gah’s knit mask both fit the bill. A full-on floral fan? Well, there are too many styles to count.
Plus, many of these fashion-forward face mask makers donate one to health care workers and hospitals for every one you buy. Others are selling their masks to offset the cost of production of masks for medical staff. As if you needed an excuse to stock up.
Check out the slideshow above for fashion-forward face masks that’ll up your street style cred.
