10 Fabulously fashionable face masks from independent brands

Our top 10 fashionable face masks to get you noticed this winter!

Who would have thought that the hottest fashion accessory to come out of 2020 and one of the most essential items in your bag would be the face mask! Now that its a legal requirement to wear a face covering on all public places and transport, we thought we'd bring you a list of all the fun, fancy and fashionable face masks that we could find... if you're gonna keep yourself and others safe, why not look fabulous whilst doing so!

You might remember we sold face masks made from the offcuts or our bright, bold and unique prints as a charity fundraiser for the NHS back in April (how is it almost November already!!!) and although we no longer do this (we ran out of scraps!) we always want to promote other independent brands, especially if they share our ethos of frivolity and sustainability, so keep reading for your new fave reusable face covering...some more wearable than others!

It's worth mentioning that the general public generally don't wear surgical face masks. These should be reserved for NHS staff and frontline workers. Wearing a face mask also remains much less important than:

  • Practising social distancing
  • Staying home when you can
  • Washing your hands with soap and water
  • Using antibacterial hand sanitiser when you’re out and about

Having said that... any excuse to accessorise and look fabulous is an excuse worth taking!
