8 Spring Face Masks to Stay Protected and Stylish This Season

·4 min read

More people are receiving a COVID-19 vaccine every day, so there are encouraging signs that normalcy is on the way. However, the pandemic isn't over yet, and you should still be wearing a face mask whenever you leave the house. (According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you should actually be wearing two. A surgical face mask first, and then a cloth option on top of that.) Now that we're just a few weeks away from the official start of spring, you should have a covering that's fitting for the new season, such as masks that remind you of the blooming flowers in your garden. (If you have to wear a mask, you might as well make it cute, right?) Here are eight options (both reusable and disposable) to buy this spring.

Floral Disposable Face Mask

Rifle Paper Co. is known for its collection of home decor in iconic prints, and now you can wear the bright floral designs. This disposable covering comes in two options: garden party (pictured) and strawberry fields. The non-surgical masks feature three layers, elastic ear loops, and an adjustable nose piece.

There are six different styles to choose from in two sizes, adult and adult petite. One five-star buyer writes, "Beautiful, very well made, and arrived really fast. They hold up wash after wash."
