The number one selling article of clothing right now has to be the mask, but medical masks are in short supply. So instead, here’s a list of some of the best cloth masks I could find that will keep you safe and stylish during the quarantine.
Cloth masks are way more breathable than some of the other ones out there. I recommend cotton, but as long as you’re comfortable, it will do the job. The reason you should wear a cotton mask over one made from a different material is that they are washable and reusable. Click on any of the photos below to explore them!
