The face mask/covering has now become a permanent fashion fixture for men as everyone begins to mould their lives around living through a pandemic. You can call it the ‘new normal’. While everyone slowly adjusts to a relaxation in the lockdown rules in London, I have yet to see anyone wear a stylish face mask.
All I ever see is over the top industrial-grade masks, to surgical masks that should be worn by a surgeon in a hospital. The style I loathe the most is the builders mask. You know the one you wear when you trying not to inhale sawdust.
Wearing a face mask should be like wearing an accessory. Like any accessory, it should be an extension of your look, a piece of the puzzle that you use to add the final part of your outfit. If you are ready to take the leap to make your mask fashionable, then you have come to the right place. Here are the best fashionable face masks for men to help you navigate pandemic life in style.
