Does it feel a little over the top to be wearing a matching Lilly Pulitzer face mask and dress? Sure. But WHO CARES?! We are living through a global pandemic for Godsakes, we may as well feel too cute for words as we all safely live by the CDC guidelines.
Now that we have graduated beyond the ‘cover my face with any fabric I can find’ stage, most of us have (hopefully) either A.) bought cloth masks in bulk from the big box stores to avoid repeat use of just one or B.) reluctantly hurled ourselves into the world of stylish, embellished and patterned masks (cough, cough).
In all seriousness, just in time for NYFW, we have reached a whole new level of facemask fashion and trsut me when I say you will not want facemask FOMO eith this one: the latest trend-which goes beyond just the Trikini– is the ‘match your accessories and outfit to your face mask’ phase. For those of you who haven’t gotten at least a cloth mask other than the disposable surgicals: it is time to invest. Not only for the reason of dodging the lack-of-effort-into-style descrip that accompanies it, according to ‘what your face mask says about you‘, but at $2 a pop they can add up seeing that they are required for daily use.
More simply put? Please get it together. Just because it’s COVID doesn’t mean style has to go right out the window. This whole absurd situation of face mask styling can actually be really fun, that is once you get into it. So let yourself.
And with so many options right in Greenwich and surrounding towns, we can’t even use the excuse of where to find stylish ones either! There are a ton of local spots to get beautiful masks, we have compiled a full list for you
here! For those who prefer to stay at home:
you can get them online too! You can even find versions that have matching headscarves, scrunchies, dresses, tops and more. Check out these designers who are blazing the trail for the next pandemic trend (hopefully the last!) in face masks: matching your accessories and wardrobe to your face masks.
