Let’s face it: many of us thought masks were a thing of the past. For some, myself included, I carefully laundered them and put them away in a drawer with hopes that I would never see them again. We kept our distance but were able to smile across that void and have some human interaction. We thought we’d rounded the corner and were home-free. Alas. It appears that in many locations, masks are back. But this time, it’s a much better mask situation than it was even a year ago. There are options galore in a wide variety of fabrics and patterns and fits for every face. And even better? During my trek to find amazing masks to include in this list, I was shocked at how many were on sale!
But despite the pricepoint or design of a mask, I found over the last year that the most important thing about any mask is comfort and breathability. And yes, while we might mask-up for a bit longer, be it for a trip to the store or even a long-awaited and planned vacation, it’s important the mask fit comfortably and allow you to breathe.
To help you find some fabulous face-masks, we’ve put together a list of our favorites in a wide variety of styles and designs.
