Masks - Embracing YOUR new normal

Embracing YOUR new normal

I don’t think the current situation will turn around any time soon. It’s time to wear your mask and be prepared. My take on this is to do it with style, finding the type and size of mask that brings out the best in you and enables you to confidently face the world.

From an article in Vogue:
“The best face masks for civilians to wear are made of cloth. Leave the surgical masks and N95s for the healthcare professionals and essential workers. Besides, designers have been in the fabric-mask game for a long time." 

My personal style advice here is to buy quite a few masks, 3-layer types or ones with changeable pm filters. And don’t forget the moldable nose wire, it will keep your glasses from fogging. 

The marketplace is full of options that are washable. If you go out daily, I recommend having 7 masks so you always have a fresh one when you need to go out. Have 5 everyday ones in simple black or neutral colors that flatter your eye color, because when you wear a mask, your eyes really stand out, especially when you smile. Avoid white masks, they stain too easily. Soap and water are effective against Covid so wash your masks after every wearing. 

Small UVC sanitizer boxes are perfect for extra security, they run a cycle that kills bacteria and Covid, See one here:

It’s not just about the rules but learning to express your style with the mask you choose. In San Francisco people are really catching on to it as a fashion accessory. It’s better to have 10 masks ready to wash and wear that go with what you’re wearing, you will feel better about doing it. See an easy option here:

Consider carrying a packaged unused spare so you can share if you get yourself into a situation where someone does not have one. Amazon has multi packs of individual washable ones. Don’t end up feeling uncomfortable when socializing with someone who forgot their mask, just give them one.
And of course, I have done a bit of online searching for some fabulous masks that add style. I love St Johns Knits Masks. They offer washable options from tweeds to silk blend masks, tasteful animal prints and even tasteful sequin embellished ones. Let me know if we can shop for the right mask for you; I have found some great sites and resources that you will love.
For men, I like simple, adjustable masks. Nothing extravagant, just tasteful. for this style, Nordstrom's donates a mask to people in need

Here's to living your life with Style and Good Health!
