Just a mask, you say? Since face masks aren’t going anywhere fast, I decided to have a little fun with it. I save my N95 masks for travel but rely on my washable ones for walking around the city. I have a steady rotation of about 5-6 masks that wear throughout the week. Some are extra AF, and others are perfect for everyday outfits out and about in the city. Either way, they all get compliments from strangers here on the streets of New York. I’ve rounded up all my top favorites at all price points from small businesses below! Some are even under $10, making it easy to snag a few to rotate in and out to keep maskne from rearing its ugly head on your face.
Designer Face Masks
Perfect for a night out, these elevated logo masks pair nicely with a more formal look or even level up an otherwise casual monochrome outfit. I’ve been LOVING my Dior face mask made from authentic deadstock Dior fabric by Jaydee Studios! There’s something special about having a sustainable yet fancy option to pull from. Find more of their designs below too.
Not into major branding? These designs are elegant enough to wear out with a nicer outfit but classic enough to pair with a casual/loungewear look too. Especially the silk designs! They’re simple yet luxe enough for any outfit. Look for designs that have a cotton backing, it’s better for your skin! Many of these include cotton backing behind the top layer for added protection. I also prefer masks with a nose wire, to avoid the dreaded glasses fogging. You’ll find a mix of both below.
