Fall fashion trends: Budget-friendly face masks

With everyone now expected to wear masks, why not look stylish while doing it?

Here are some stylish yet affordable masks that everyone can rock every day of the week.

If you are wondering how to make a mask stylish or if one can even be so, it is rather simple, try to incorporate it into your outfit for that day. 

This first batch of masks is simple and affordable. Coming in at $20 for a pack of five, these Buck Mason masks are the perfect choice for the average college student. Granted, the only way to get them at that good of a price is to get five black ones. To get some more exciting colors, you’ll have to pay closer to $30.

Next, is a pack of 10 assorted masks for $25 from SwimSpot. The quality is  good enough for $25. Instead of getting them assorted, you also can get them in a single color.

Another notable vendor is Caraa, especially in the neutral color section of the market. They have packs of five masks that ring in at $25. 

The packs come in color ranges that resemble marine, fall, pastel, pink, and neutral colors. However, all the colors are so simple, one could more than likely incorporate them into any outfit.

On top of that, Nordstrom has a fashionable collection as well. One pack features five masks, one white, one black, and the others have red, blue, and green ink splotching patterns. These are not just simple tie-dye, but more intricate and detailed. Better yet, it comes in at $30 for the lot.

Next, we have the masks from Plain Jane and Average Joe. They are the light blue disposable masks that everyone has seen a million times, but they are breathable, comfortable, and insanely cheap. At the time of writing this article, if you have Amazon Prime, you can get a pack of 50 masks from under $14.

Ultimately, for the fashionistas, Levi’s and Fossil will be your best route. 

Levi’s has a three-pack of masks, one red, one blue, and one black, that resemble a classic bandana. They are more or less comfortable and easily tie into any outfit you have.

Finally, the last option comes from a rather unlikely source; Fossil. The odd thing here is that they are a watch company specializing in bespoke, yet quite affordable watches and jewelry. One key feature is that they have a line of unisex face masks that come in packs of three for $20, which range from the cool and understated to the loud and bright tie-dye.
