The use of stylish reusable face masks with matching outfits is one trend that has inevitably dominated 2020 fashion especially amongst celebrities but this has not always been so.
Towards the beginning of the year, the arrival of covid-19 pandemic threatened the fashion industry ─ most people preferred to stay home; they were more concerned about avoiding contact with the virus than they were about their fashion sense.
Precautionary measures trickled in gradually; from hand washing to the use of hand sanitizers and then the compulsory use of facemasks in public places! Their success in preventing covid-19 was massive. Hence the fashion industry that had hitherto suffered a decline quickly bounced back with full force.
Making a fashion statement with the ninja mystery look was the trend everyone embraced. The fashion trend in 2020 is matching outfits with the right facemasks. Talk of making lemonades with the lemons life throws at you!
For the past seven months, we’ve seen different shades of colors, textures and styles of facemasks. So far, it’s been breathtaking.
Although reusable face masks are as effective as medical masks to prevent the spread of the virus, it is advisable to choose face masks made from breathable materials like cotton to ensure the free flow of air. Here are some inspiring and breathtaking celebrity facemask fashion trends available on any affordable online store.
