Stylish Face Masks The Rank & Style Staff Wears On Repeat

If we had to name one accessory that defined 2020, we'd go with face masks. We can't speak for everyone, but if we're required to rock a piece of PPE every time we're in public, you better believe we're gonna choose the most fashionable face mask we can find. But if we're being really honest, not all face masks are created equal. Some, although cute as heck, lead to mask-ne. Others, look great, but make getting a good workout in nearly impossible. However, after months of searching, the Rank & Style staff is happy to report, we've found some of the most stylish and effective face masks on the market. From a space-inspired surgical pick to a face covering built for workouts, keep scrolling to shop our picks for the Top 10 cloth coverings and face masks you can buy right this very second.
