Up your face mask game (but it’ll cost you)

None of us want to think of them as a fashion item. But after nearly two years wearing face masks, we may as well make them pretty.

This week, the prime minister announced face masks will become compulsory in many public indoor venues.

Meanwhile, scientists in Japan have recently created masks that glow in the dark when they detect Covid. We think it’s an interesting development and would like to give them a try! But for now, we’ll stick to the most fashionable masks we can find.

Here are the best designer masks to purchase to seriously up your fashion game (if you don’t mind splashing a bit of cash). If you’e after a mask chain as the perfect accessory, check out our article on them here.
