The new reality for most people is wearing a mask in public. This means wearing a mask to work, to the grocery store, to the doctor’s office, and more. Masks are becoming the newest accessory as people are trying to find ones that will match their outfits, look professional, look elegant, or display their favorite logos, slogans, and images. Now that they are becoming a regular part of everyday life and fashion, people are looking for ways to maintain a stylish appearance while wearing a mask.
Here are four suggestions to look stylish wearing a mask.
1. Find masks that make a statement.
One way to look stylish is to find a mask that is over-the-top flashy and eye-catching. Glitter, sequins, mesh, bright patterns, clashing colors are all possibilities for a statement piece. Finding options that will go with all of your different outfits may be impossible, stressful, and expensive. However, if you choose one that is so obvious it doesn’t match, it will be a statement piece that people will notice. You may also choose to make a statement with a slogan, political name, or image that is important to you and will make it immediately recognizable to others. While some may argue it isn’t elegant to have a photo or phrase across your face, the point is to make a statement that stands out. You are working to purposely not blend in with the crowd. When looking at different materials and appearance, you want to make sure you are getting a breathable mask to ensure it is also functional.
2. Accentuate your other features.
Your mask will cover your mouth and bottom half of your face, so it’ll be more challenging to wow people with your make-up, and lipstick is almost pointless when wearing one. However, you can focus on your other features, particularly your eyes. Look for ways to make your eyes more dramatic with your make-up. Add faux mink lashes to your routine to glow-up your overall look. Faux mink lashes are high-quality, easy to apply and remove, and will undoubtedly give your eyes the wow-factor. With only the top half of your face visible, attention will immediately be drawn to your eyes. Other ideas include wearing statement earrings that will draw people’s attention and having your nails nicely manicured. The smaller details that might have otherwise blended in will stand out more.
3. Coordinate your mask with your outfit.
Another option is to coordinate your masks with the rest of your outfit. For men, this may mean getting them made in the same material as your tie or dress shirt. They can be matched through basic colors or designs. It will be more expensive because you will need a multitude of masks, but the overall visual impact will be impressive. You will look elegant, and your outfit will look well-planned. People will admire the effort you put into your appearance. Women can choose patterns or textures that go with the rest of their outfit. For example, when wearing a silky or satin dress, you can get a coordinating silky or satin mask.
4. Choose a non-mask mask.
There are plenty of non-mask options available, including gators and scarves. You can make yourself look more elegant by choosing an option that is functional but not surgical looking. You can have an array of scarves that you wrap dramatically to cover your nose and mouth while also being a part of your outfit. Several companies are now offering shirts with exaggerated necklines with small loops that can be pulled up over your mouth and loop over your ears when you need it but appear to be a regular shirt when not required.
