    37 Face Masks You'll Probably Want For Fall

    The bottom half of your face is about to get autumnal as heck.

    Hey there! By now you've seen the CDC's guidelines recommending people wear nonmedical face coverings in public (and know whether or not they're mandatory in your area).

    CDC

    These guidelines are in place primarily to protect people around you from droplets you might expel through breathing, talking, or coughing; even people without symptoms may still be at risk of spreading the virus. The masks don't have to be anything fancy — the primary functions are that they are breathable, cover your nose and mouth, and are tight enough that they don't leave loose space for droplets to escape. Ideally, face coverings will also be multi-layered — and even *better*, could include a pocket for a filter. You can check out BuzzFeed's guide to the CDC's face covering recommendations, which include answers to all your burning mask questions as well as tutorials for how to make your own!

    You can also check out BuzzFeed's guides to face masks in solid colors, the prettiest face masks, and face mask problem products for more options.

    1. A five-pack of Old Navy masks you can get in 20 different ~aesthetics~, including fall-friendly ones like "Check Mates" and "Cabernet Ditsy."

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Old Navy

    I held off on buying these at first because I truly couldn't choose a set to save my life (AESTHETICS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME), but after my brother got a set he loved I caved and got them too. These are super sturdy, well-made, SO great for the price point, and come in genuinely cute patterns and solids that make it a lot easier to match something to your outfit or mood. I tied the elastic on mine just for a snugger fit, but the size they come in well-suited for adult faces. The ones I'm holding above are the "Check Mates" mix.

    Promising review: "Bought these as extras. Super comfortable and I throw them in the wash after each use. They open up and cover nose to chin. Bought them in colors my husband would use as well. Good purchase." —Old Navy Customer

    Psst — a few little mask tips before you go!

    Three face masks hanging from Command hooks on the wall
    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    ✨If you're looking for a better fit, try these ear savers and mask adjusters from Amazon ($6.99 for a four-pack); I use them on masks where the elastic isn't quuuuite a perfect fit on my face.

    ✨ If your glasses are fogging up with a mask, people are swearing by this anti-fog spray on Amazon for $10.55.

    ✨ And if you're looking for a cute, convenient way to store your masks without installing anything permanent, try Command hooks! I've included a pic of my set up below; I just put them by the door so I can grab 'em on my way out. It's also really nice if I've washed a mask and I'm waiting for it to air dry. You can snag a pack of nine small hooks on Amazon for $7.48.

    If you're looking for even *more* mask recommendations, though, I've also assembled a MASSIVE list of the best places to buy face masks online, including faves like Aerie, Old Navy, and Target, as well as a ton of cute Etsy shops ❤️.

    Just remember — masks are not a substitute for social distancing! You should still maintain a minimum of 6 feet of distance between you and other people when possible, and continue washing your hands and avoiding touching your face. Stay safe!
