FACE MASKS…. If you had told us a year ago that this would be an actual “thing,” we would have looked at you like you had ten heads. BUT, here we are. Face masks are our new normal (at least for now), so why not embrace it right?! And if we are going to embrace this new thing, why not make it a fun accessory? Enter this post on stylish face masks!
Behind the ear (tie or loop), around the head (tie or loop)…. Disposable, silk, cotton…. Solid, print…. There are LUCKILY so many options because all of our favorite retailers and brands are jumping right on the mask bandwagon. So whether you want to make a statement with your mask or be as subtle as possible, we have some fun reusable face mask options for you!
Stylish Face Masks
Universal Threads at Target has a great line of masks with ear loops – and you can order by size! At the price of $2 per mask, there is no real reason NOT to give one a try when you are making your next Target run. They come in some fun soft prints, a pretty chambray blue, sage green, and black.
Aerie and Baublebar both have face masks with the added feature of adjustable ear loops! Their pattern options are SO cute, and their prices can’t be beat.
Aerie also has so many fun animal print options! Remember, animal print is one of our favorite neutrals, and masks are no exception!
We couldn’t talk about masks without mentioning J. Crew’s options, especially for those followers that love a traditional look. J. Crew has a really pretty set of three masks in gingham and plaid!
Anthropologie is a treasure trove of pretty masks…. So many fun colors and pretty patterns, and lots of style options, including ties around the head, ties behind the ear, and ear loops!
Thinking Outside the Box
While there are so many fun masks out there to be had, we can also think outside the box a bit when it comes to covering our faces to run errands and conduct meetings. Think gaiters, bandanas, scarves…. Especially as we begin to head towards fall here shortly!
Most of us think of gaiters as a very outdoor, sporty accessory. While that has probably been true in the past, many retailers are introducing fashionable gaiters, like this super fun tie dye one from Social Threads! Wear it as an accessory as part of your look, and then pull it up to run into the grocery…. No more wondering, “Where did I put my mask?!”
The bandana scarf…. The perfect scarf for the warmer summer months because it’s lightweight and less bulky around the neck. More for decoration and less for keeping warm. And perfect for pulling up over your nose and mouth!
A lightweight gauze scarf is also a great way to accessorize your summer look (love a gauze scarf with a tee shirt and denim shorts for example!) – and it can double as a face covering to enter your favorite local establishment!
And of course, don’t forget that your favorite silk scarf, oh so classic and beautiful, doubles nicely as a face mask!
