Face masks have become an important staple in the world’s wardrobe. Due to this change, mainstream brands and designers are doing what they can to meet customers’ needs. While these styles from Disney, Old Navy and more aren’t comparable to masks used by medical professionals, it’s important to know that’s actually a good thing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), those essentials should be reserved for healthcare workers and other frontline responders.
All in all, wearing protective face covering can make a huge impact on the spread of coronavirus. Do your part and look great doing it with the affordable stylish options below.
