17 of the best reusable face masks

Now that face masks are mandatory on public transport and highly advisable when maintaining social distancing isn’t possible, I have put together a guide on where to shop for the best face coverings that won’t compromise your look.

Why should we be wearing face masks?

Although face coverings cannot prevent you from catching COVID19, they do prevent you spreading the virus to others should you be carrying it.

‘My mask protects you; yours protects me’, Professor Trish Greenhalgh, of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford.

Despite the benefits of wearing a face covering, it remains imperative that the general public do not wear surgical face masks. These essential face coverings should be reserved for NHS staff and frontline workers only.

Where can we buy a face mask?

I have been hunting online for face coverings that not only slow the spread of the virus but, thanks to fashion-forward designers, are incredibly stylish.

I cannot vouch for the effectiveness of the following face coverings; they are all readily available online and definitely look the part.
