1. The Space Mask

Early in the year, masks and face coverings were not even a thought. If you were seen wearing a space helmet on an airplane or subway, you would have been looked at as an alien. Today, they are all the rage in pandemic fashion.


2. Virus bling


2. The Gold Mask

In fact, all types of stylish and trendy face coverings are emerging worldwide in the midst of COVID-19. Indian businessman Shankar Kurhade wears a $4,000 facemask made of gold . While he’s not sure how effective it is in protecting him, he loves the attention it gets.

3. The Your-Own-Face Face Mask

A producer in Gandhinagar , India is printing the bottom half of your face onto a mask, so people can tell it’s you. It’s a little creepy, but at least you’d always be sure you’re wearing your own.


Food-inspired masks?

4. The Straw-Sipper Mask and 5. The Taco Mask?

Sipping your iced coffee while keeping yourself protected is now a reality with masks that have a hole for your straw . Who knows what’s coming next? Perhaps food-based masks like this one for Mexican food lovers?


In all seriousness, non-surgical face masks are not 100% effective, but they can limit risk when it comes to being exposed to COVID-19 and other germs. What about a mask that just fits your lifestyle – whether you are playing sports, learning in a classroom or out and about running errands?
