For the foreseeable future, life shall be divided into two distinct time periods: B.C. and A.C., aka before COVID-19 and after COVID-19. And one of the ways the novel coronavirus has shifted the way we live our everyday lives is the need for face masks. Just as we thought we were saying goodbye to face masks (thank you, vaccines!), the Delta variant swept in and said not so fast. Most businesses and public places are starting to require face masks again and according to the CDC, “People age 2 and older should wear masks in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.”
So if you tossed your face masks with the hope that you’d never need them again, it’s time to restock your supply. Luckily, there are more face masks available now than ever before and there’s no shortage of protective and still somewhat stylish cloth face masks out there (and while you’re at it, stock up on these cute face mask accessories too).
So, with that said, we rounded up a collection of face masks that fit both bills: some chicer, some more perfunctory. And, most importantly, they’ll fit your bill so that you can go about your life responsibly.
