36 Extremely On-Trend Face Masks For Wearing Every Time You Leave the House

Remember when the term “masking” conjured visions of an electively low-key Friday night, spent with your face cloaked in petrified French clays, dripping honey concoctions, or mildly alarming acids? Today, of course, amidst an ever-expanding backdrop of heartbreak, fear, weirdness, and uncertainty, Mask Life has taken on new meaning. But while removing your mask may no longer reveal a newly glowing visage, it’s still possible to view wearing a mask as a form of self care. Even better, it’s a way to care for others around you, which seems to be the lesson a few of us are most in need of learning during these times. And since, due to an utter failure of leadership, we remain without the N95s we so dearly need, we’ll continue to look to the idiosyncracies of mask design as a tiny way to lift our spirits, channel fleeting design trends, and convey some small part of our personalities, like any good accessory ought to. Today, we’re doing a proper round-up, offering you 36 examples of 2020’s only accessory of note — which, it seems, may become a permanent fixture in our lives as we kick off the new year.
