Are Facemasks the New Fashion Statement?

Many brands are now highlighting the fashionable approach to staying safe with fashion face masks. Here are our favourite fashionable face masks for spring. 

This time last year, no one would have suspected that a face mask would be one of the most important items in one’s wardrobe. The global pandemic has cemented this necessary facial covering, as a clear fashion staple. Health experts claim that there is clear evidence that face masks prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition to this, it is now a lawful requirement to wear a face mask in many public premises. This means the majority of the population require a mask when leaving our homes. It looks as though face masks are here to stay, ensuring longevity in this new fashion staple.   

Many brands are now understanding the importance of face masks and highlighting the fashionable approach to staying safe. There are a large range of masks to fit in with one’s style, fashion and personality. Long gone are the bright blue, itchy and abrasive, medical masks. Now, consumers have the option of funky Rixo patterns and high-end Fendi silk coverings. Due to high-street and high-end brands seeing this as a new product category, it is clear to see that the face mask is not just a necessity, but now an accessory.
