Listen, it has been a long two years of pandemic life, but now’s not the time to get lazy with wearing face masks, especially when the Omicron variant is spread rapidly. Look, it’s obviously not super fun to be wearing face masks everywhere again, but it’s the safe and right thing to do. Plus, there are so many high-quality ones out there. Now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals continue wearing face masks in crowded areas to help stop the spread of the Delta and Omicon Variants (sigh), it’s an ideal time to switch out those old decrepit ones you’ve been using for a little too long for some newer ones. Because let’s be real: if you have to cover up your beautiful face, you might as well do it with style.
It’s possible to protect yourself and others and still look stylish. Don’t believe us? We scoured throughout the deep, deep depths of the internet and rounded up some of the best face masks available. These include designs from retailers like Summersalt, the brand responsible for popularizing color block swimsuits that, when styled right, can double as tops (trust us on this one). These fabric masks are just as chic as those suits, and we’ve got our eye on the multi-pack that has three different-patterned styles that would look so good with your fav sundress. But, if something a bit more basic is on your shopping list, you can get some wear-anywhere black masks practically anywhere. A top choice is Maskup’s lightweight style. It’s something you can use at the gym or grocery store without overheating. What’s more: if you buy three of these, you’ll get one free. Gotta love a bargain.
Below, you’ll find so many cloth face mask options sure to fit with any summer outfit you might have planned—or your sweats, of course. Staying safe and keeping others healthy never looked so good.
