Ever since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that we start wearing protective face coverings in public, face masks have become a part of everyday life for most of us. And something that takes up that much space on your face should ideally reflect a little bit of your personality, right?
It’s fairly easy to make your own mask, but if that’s not your jam, there’s no dearth of homemade and retailer-produced cloth face masks to buy right now. And thankfully, they’re not all somber and monotone. They can come covered in flowers, sequins or pretty much any print you can imagine.
Disney has its own line, higher-end fashion brands are making them and Etsy offers countless options too. Which to choose? We rounded up some of our favorites for every imaginable personality to help you find the right one for you. And if none of these strike your fancy, check out our guides on face masks that give back, face masks for kids and how to clean your face mask too.
