Another day, another way to personalize the reality that is wearing protective face masks during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Reminiscent of granny-glasses chains, or those utilitarian cords that keep your sunglasses around your neck during active, outdoorsy moments, chic lanyards attached to face masks are popping up around the necks of celebrities and stylish folks all over Instagram.

In addition to keeping you from continually losing your favorite masks, and helping reduce unnecessary mask and face touching, the lanyards (which are also being called “face mask necklaces” or “face mask chains”) are a playful, fun accessory. And a lot of entrepreneurs on Etsy are making them now, so you can support a small business in the process. Keep scrolling for our favorites.
