At the height of summer, lightweight and breathable face masks proved to be a necessity. Now that it’s getting colder outside, wearing warm face masks is an added bonus beyond protecting yourself and others from COVID-19.

With cold and flu season beginning, it’s crucial to keep wearing a mask—especially since the symptoms are so similar to the coronavirus. With materials like fleece and wool, warm face masks help lower your risk of spreading and contracting illnesses while make your fall and winter outfits much cozier. Think of it as a 2020 version of a ski mask—except it’s cute, cozy, and absolutely essential.
