Face masks are the new normal, and by now you’ve probably bought an assortment for different activities such as workouts, running quick errands, and something more protective for anything indoors. Now that spring is in sight, it feels like the right time to refresh with some new masks to stay stylish and safe. Fashion month has officially kicked off, and although most collections will be shown virtually this season, there is still some “socially distanced” street style to get us all feeling inspired.
As protective face masks have become our new normal, US-Reviews have put together the ultimate guide to the best designer face masks to help keep you safe and stylish. From all-black face coverings to bright, printed styles, these are the top face mask fashion trends in 2021.
Obviously, a more environmentally friendly and sustainable reusable mask is ideal, but when you’re dealing with allergies or know you’ll need to discard your mask after wearing it, a chic disposable face mask is the way to go. You can easily find chic disposable masks if you check men’s fashion accessories shops. Celebrities like Justin and Hailey Bieber and even Bella Hadid have been loving sleek, simple, and actually cute disposable face masks, so you might as well get the look for days you can’t use a washable mask!
If you’re skeptical about adding accessories—and, in particular, a chain—to your mask, I hear you. But these beauts aren’t your grandma’s glasses chain. Both chunky and dainty chains and straps have had a major comeback and the trend has transitioned seamlessly to work with all your favorite face masks. Typically, you just clip the accessories onto your mask and go! Before you know it, your safety measure will become a vital part of your outfit.
Whether you’re hitting the pavement for a quick run in a popular park or heading back to the gym for the first time, you’ll likely be wearing a mask for safety. Luckily, there are athletic face masks that are actually cute, too. Covering your face while exercising isn’t an ideal situation, but it’s still important to help keep yourself and others safe. Luckily, there are quite a few cloth face masks out there made with exercising and looking stylish in mind, so you can breathe comfortably during your next workout.
Embellished + Printed Masks
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from shopping for face masks recently, it’s that there are plenty of chic options available. There’s one particular trend, though, that emerged last year and is definitely reigning supreme in 2021: embellished and novelty print face masks. Sure, a cute patterned mask is great, but embellished masks take things up a notch. In both surprisingly versatile styles and maximalist delights, this trend is worth shopping for.
Take inspiration from a classic fall trend for a leather mask. Grab a couple in different colors, such as black, brown, and beige, to match your fall boots and coats. Leather masks are the cherry on top of your monochrome fall outfits.
Whether you’re dressing up for a street style photoshoot or headed out on a run and just want to look put-together enough to grab a coffee afterward, snag one of these mask trends and you’re set. Before long, you might even want to wear them with your favorite looks. They’re that cute! Even better, it looks like we may not even need to wear face masks for very much longer, thank goodness. In the meantime, shop the trends above to change your style.
