    28 Masks To Help You Express Some Of Your Personality

    Take the proper precautions *and* show off a little of who you are under the mask.

    By this point, I'm sure you're familiar with the the CDC's new guidelines recommending people wear nonmedical face coverings in public.


    In case you're not, the CDC is recommending that a face mask be worn when out in public (in some states this is actually a requirement). The mask doesn't have to be anything fancy, it just needs to be breathable, cover your nose and mouth, and be tight enough that it doesn't leave loose space for droplets to escape. It should *ideally* be multi-layered and have a pocket for a filter. You can check out BuzzFeed's guide to the CDC's new face covering recommendations, which include answers to all your burning mask questions as well as tutorials for how to make your own!

    In my personal opinion, I felt if it was necessary to wear a face mask whenever I leave that house (and I live in NYC, so it is), I wanted it to be *cute* and reflect my personality! Here are some fun ones to keep you (and others) safe *and* show off a little of who you are:

    1. A set of five masks from Reformation for anyone who considers themselves to be a fashionista.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Reformation

    BuzzFeed Editor, Emma Lord, recently placed an order for Reformation's mask set and was really pleased! She said:

    "Not only is shipping free, but it's pretty darn fast — I ordered my set April 17, and they arrived on April 24, which was a relief considering a lot of major retailers who have pivoted to making masks are experiencing back orders up to mid-June... At least some of the fabrics used are from their actual line; being a flawless internet sleuth (read: Googling the words "navy floral Reformation"), I have unmasked that my masks were made with the same material behind Reformation's Rosehip Dress in the Yolanda print currently retailing for $248. This is the fanciest my face has ever felt."

    Get a set of five from Reformation for $25.

    2. A chic marble mask you can wear with your most fabulous outfit — you might want to order more than one so you can rotate 'em throughout the week.
