One accessory trending these days that no one would have predicted a year ago? Cloth face masks. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the CDC is asking us to invest in a face covering — and to stick with masks of the cloth variety, as medical grade options are reserved for healthcare workers.
Presented with an opportunity to hold onto some normalcy and joy during the pandemic, people are using masks to show off their style and support small businesses that are suffering. In fact, masks are now being sold by some of today’s top designers, with brands like Collina Strada pivoting their businesses to produce the essential item.
If you’re looking to buy a mask on a budget, however, there are still plenty of affordable options to explore. Just make sure the mask has a close fit while still allowing for breathing room, and that it includes ties or loops for a secure fit, is machine washable and made of 100% cotton or jersey fabric.
