Problem: I'm a 'team player' and using the disposable mask but they don't make me feel stylish. Is there a mask that is functional but fashionable too?
Solution: This is an easy one because you just need to get something that works for you! The best facial masks to own have a few features in common....
- you can breathe in them when worn properly
- they stay up without you having to hold it in place
- it shows your personality
- it's functional and offers some level of protection
The added bonus is when the mask complements your outfit!
As a wardrobe stylist, I've found denim masks to be non-functional; I've found the disposable masks to be yucky; I've found a lot of masks that are just too small so they pinch around the ear or simply don't cover the entire area from nose to chin, and I've found more than a few masks that don't allow room between the mask and your skin so it's suffocating.
My implemented solution: forget the masks that have the stretchy band...your best bet is a mask with a manual tie! While I've opted for these adorable ones by Clare V, I've also researched the Ijji, Baggu, and Birdwell.
Whichever direction you decide to go, just make sure a lot of light doesn't shine thru (that means droplets can get thru too!) and...it matches your outfit or at least your personality!!
